Sick of just singing in your shower? Want to show off your pipes (or lack thereof) to more than just the steering wheel on the way to the grocery store? Sounds like you need to go do some karaoke.

Luckily for you, Columbus has plenty of karaoke options for you to choose from, from live band karaoke to good, old-fashioned classic karaoke. Just please don’t sing any Tenacious D or John Mayer because I already called dibs on those.
