In just a few short hours, some friends and I will be having dinner, and then heading out to Devil’s Point to watch, and perhaps participate, in the unique combination of karaoke and strippers known as “Stripperoke”.

I don’t entirely know what to expect. Not sure what or how the strippers “help” the karaokers (Mac OS X does not recognize that as a word). Not sure just how many drinks I will need before taking the stage.

But I know one thing: I’m glad my friends will be there with me, and I’m glad I live in a city that welcomes and embraces the more underground forms of entertainment.

And there’s lots of strip clubs, too.
