Join Christine for Yucatan karaoke
By Ty Hughes
The Yucatan Mexican Restaurant and Cantina in Mill Creek has always been an active provider of karaoke.
Recently, Karaoke Host Christine, now just three months into her new gig, offered up an exciting karaoke contest for her singers to compete and win. Just a one-night affair, Saturday, August 18, Christine invited karaoke enthusiasts to sing two songs, and hopefully be voted as the winner, making them a hundred bucks richer.
Six singers competed, including Russ, Elmer, Allison, Laura, Mike, Shane, and Cheryl. The mood was light and festive, the crowd receptive and generous with applause. One by one the singers took to the center of the room, mic in hand, and gave it all they had.
The appointed judges, Chris, Dena, and Laura scored each singer on vocals, stage presence, song selection, etc., but rather than tally up separate scores, they merely huddled together after each performance and came up with a consensus score between 1-10. A bit unconventional, but it seemed to work well.
Congrats to the winners:
1st Place ($100) – Russ: Turn the Page and Leave Your Hat On
2nd Place ($50) – Elmer: Mack the Knife and Sweet Caroline
3rd Place ($25) – Alison: Magic Man and What’s Up
Christine hosts a fun and exciting karaoke show every Wednesday Ladies Night starting at 7:30pm. She and her friends really let loose and have a blast. The bar features drink specials, and the kitchen serves some of the best Mexican food available!
Enjoy $5 Mini Meals Daily and Happy Hour prices as well at the Yucatan Mexican Restaurant and Lounge at 20615 Bothell/Everett Hwy. (425) 482-2715.
