Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
The drinks are cheap, but the experience is rich. You don’t have to be fearless to get up on the Big Daddy’s stage for karaoke; no one cares if you sound like a strangled cat. Go ahead and sing that Madonna song you’ve always wanted to belt out in front of a crowd, because your fellow patrons will be poorly singing their favorite songs from high school. The bar rats will just keep sipping their Bud drafts while they watch SportsCenter.
