Jive with the Band at Blue Martini
900 South Miami Ave., Miami
Kick off your week with Martinis and Karaoke as you Jive with the Band at Blue Martini Brickell. Let your inner Christina Aguilera shine through and you could possibly win $200 cash for being the best new singer of the night along with a drink on the house. After six weeks, the top 5 finalists get to compete for a chance to win $1000. Sounds like a WIN-WIN to me – Karaoke, martinis, and a chance to win some cash, umm yes please.
