Oâ€™FINNIGANS; EVERETT, WA Good times at Oâ€™Finniganâ€™s
By Ty Hughes
The weekend is here! Where to go? Allow us to make a strong suggestion of heading down to Oâ€™Finniganâ€™s Pub at 13601 Hwy. 99 S. in Everett for karaoke bliss with host Scott E. â€œBâ€ every Friday and Saturday night.
Oâ€™Finniganâ€™s is party central when the place inevitably becomes packed to the gills with young, nubile bodies of all shapes and sizes with one thing in mind; get loose and shrug off the cares and concerns of a long work week. Theyâ€™ve got it going on here, and smack dab in the middle of all the action, mixing it up, is KJ Scott E. â€œBâ€, working the crowd into a frenzy with his karaoke magic. It sounds like a regular nightclub when things really get going. The music is crystal clear and loud, just how you like it!
Scott E. â€œBâ€ has been hosting karaoke since 1993, starting out on the Eastside. His faithful wife and number one fan, April, attends every show and loves every minute of it. They just bought a house in Kirkland and enjoy spending time with their new baby, now two years old, plus theyâ€™ve got a couple teenagers running around too.
Scott works a day job and then makes his way to the bar for a full night of karaoke every weekend night. Where he finds the energy, nobody knows. When heâ€™s not working the crowd at Oâ€™Finniganâ€™s, Scott E. â€œBâ€ is busy hosting weddings, corporate events and private parties. If youâ€™re looking for a professionally hosted karaoke party or DJ to work your party, give Scott E. â€œBâ€ a call at (425) 736-2977 or check out his Web site at www.myspace.com/butterfieldproductions.
Scott says the atmosphere at Oâ€™Finniganâ€™s is â€œtension-freeâ€, so everybody can feel comfortable getting up on the mic whether itâ€™s for the first time or the millionth. His experience on the mixing board is amazing, bringing his performers to karaoke excellence right from the start.
Steve got up and did â€œSnowâ€ to a resounding applause, Rich lays down â€œAmarillo By Morningâ€, and Bill prefers to let Scott E. â€œBâ€ to choose his songs for him, sort of an ongoing suicide karaoke.
It was Benâ€™s birthday when we showed up, and he was the beneficiary of a â€œBlow Jobâ€ from a willing female participant. He took a chair in the middle of the room, someone placed a shot between his legs and she promptly â€œwent down on himâ€, wrapping her lips around the shot glass, burying her face in his crotch and came up with the shot in her mouth. The crowd went crazy! Ben was thankful, but a little embarrassed, to say the least.
Oâ€™Finniganâ€™s is a really good time. Everyone is extremely friendly and easy to meet here. Youâ€™re bound to make some new friends and come away with a new favorite hotspot after spending an evening here.
Scott E. â€œBâ€ hosts karaoke every Friday and Saturday, but you can enjoy karaoke at Oâ€™Finniganâ€™s seven nights a week â€“ and we suggest you do!
