It's one of those nights and you feel like singing.
Picture this: A room full of people. Some of them are drunk, some are sober. And some are even in the in-between stage of having enough courage and just needing one more shot before grabbing the mic. The music is loud and you're starting to shake those hips that don't lie.
Now, there's no judging here — drunk or not drunk. Brave or not brave. Talented or not talented ... but if you have the ovaries (or balls) of steel to get up on stage and sing, here are 10 karaoke bars you have to hit up in Des Moines!
