- Competitive Karaoke Takes Center Stage In Atlanta :  Singers, start your warm-ups!  Atlanta’s first ever organized competitive karaoke league is finally here, and the stakes are high as singers take the stage in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward.

Venkman’s is launching the league in partnership with Monday Night Brewing, launching the eight-week league on May 5.  The league will consiste of eight teams (six to eight singers each), who will compete at Venkman’s every Thursday night.  Each night’s contest will be split into three rounds: solo, challenge round (one to three singers), and a group round of three to six singers.  Simon, Randy, and Paula won’t be there, but there will be judges – including celebrities and guests and the crowd itself. 

Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent the morning at Venkman’s, learning more about the competitive karaoke league and…you guessed it…doing a little singing himself.  For more information on registration and rules, click here.

  4. Using a spoon, place 1 Tablespoon Seasoned Ricotta in the center of the bottom half of the circles, leaving ¼ to ½ inch by the edge clean
  5.  Using a clean spoon, place 2/3 Tablespoon of pea puree in the middle of the Ricotta Mixture
