WE LOVE OUR PARTNERS: District Karaoke
Clear your throat, dust off your mic, and get ready.. it’s time for District Karaoke! Yes, that’s correct, it exists, and it’s awesome! Our featured partner for this week is District Karaoke, D.C.’s only social, team-based, karaoke league. There are so many things we like about that sentence, so let me say it again, a little bit louder this time: SOCIAL, TEAM-BASED, KARAOKE LEAGUE. Oh snap. And the best part? Their karaoke winners win prizes… like, say, a pair of tickets to a show at the 9:30 Club?! 
District Karaoke hosts karaoke four nights a week at various bars around D.C. (bars like Penn Social and Policy, among others). Currently, each division is entering their Semifinals/Finals nights, and they’ll be having their City-Wide Finals on December 3rd. Be sure to check it out for a night filled with drinks, fun, and a lots ‘o singing! 
Registration for the Winter season starts TOMORROW! Click here for more info.

My life. :)

Link Bait: Pre-Memorial Day Edition

I may not celebrate Memorial Day in the way it was intended, but I sure love three-day weekends. This one is taking the sting out of this ridiculous heat we’re having right now.

Domestics
Anyone who knows me knows I love to sing, which is why I find this article about women and falsetto interesting. Of course Slate makes sure to segue into it with a mention of Robin Gibb’s death.

Gay rights has always been an issue of interest to me, which is why I found this piece about the relationship among blacks, gays and the church especially intriguing.

Does going organic turn you into a jerk? Short answer: yes, according to Time.

Ice cream truck drivers aren’t happy with Good Humor, which is facing a shortage of some of its popular flavors. Spoiler alert: This article contains a hedcut of a Good Humor bar.

Internacionales
The odd tale of Nazi jazz…apparently, it was a thing.

I mentioned Zimbabwe’s use of U.S. currency a few weeks ago….Here’s some more on that.

Art
Some cut paper messages. (h/t Colossal) Super cool, but this looks so painstaking!

These wood sculptures are unbelievably realistic. I think my favorite is the envelope filled with money.

Cute puppies
These photos of dogs sitting in cars are not only artistic but also adorable.

Here’s a video of a dog riding a bike (!!!!!!!!). 

Greyhounds, my favorite breed of dog, are becoming service doggies. Just another reason to love them.
