“A mixed bag on a busy Monday night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

Monday karaoke is hard to find in Toronto, especially on Boxing Day. The Unicorn was the only karaoke bar so we made the 20 minute subway trip to Eglinton. Crazy busy! And you could see right away they were totally understaffed and swamped.

Karaoke with Steve is really good so we might be back for that. Chicken wings were half price = good. Nachos got forgotten (due to understaffing) under the heat lamps and were somewhat dehydrated when we went up to get them ourselves. Five Amsterdam beers for $20 special on Monday was awesome. Bizarre mixture of 19 year olds and a 30+ crowd made for some entertaining singing too. Hopefully they plan their staffing better on future holidays because the evening had the potential to be awesome.
