Karaoke meets roller skating at Broadway Bar

From the "we doubt you've seen this one lately" department:

Ever wish you could sing karaoke while simultaneously roller skating? If you feel you're up to the challenge of wheeling around while covering all sorts of popular tunes, perhaps you should consider taking a crack at "Rock and Rolleroke."

Taking place April 8 at the Broadway Bar in Amityville, it's the brainchild of karaoke-night host Jimmy Goose (of "The Jimmy Goose Karaoke Experience" party company) -- who will provide wireless mics that allow guests on skates to warble and wobble. Goose says he carries about 130,000 songs for singing, and he will spin disco and other danceable music so rollers can boogie.

As for the floor space, Jimmy is quick to point out there is sufficient room to skate in circles -- keep in mind this is not a rink-sized venue. Furthermore, anyone who puts on the wheels will have to sign a disclaimer claiming full responsibility for their actions -- and, for now, guests must bring their own skates.

Everything starts about 8 p.m. for an 18-and-over crowd, with an $8 cover for everyone under 21; guys over must pay $5, but ladies born before April 8, 1989, get in for free.
