Sticky Rice and Little Miss Whiskey's Golden Dollar offer two of the most rockin' karaoke nights in D.C.: Sticky has crowds of hipsters standing on tables to sing on Thursday, while everyone gets dressed up for the every-other-Wednesday Kostume Karaoke at Little Miss Whiskey's. Since they're only a block apart, the two events have a friendly rivalry going on, and this month they're teaming up to bring back the H Street Karaoke Competition, a three-bar contest to find the best vocals on the strip.
Here's how it works: At the regularly-scheduled karaoke nights this month, a panel of judges select the night's topperformers (categories include "Awesomeness," "Hilarity" and "Sexiness"). The winners will move on to the finals at the Rock and Roll Hotel on Jan. 27, where they'll take the stage and try to win a large cash prize. It's free to enter at either location -- all you have to do is show up and put your name down.
