With a Little Luck o’ the Irish,

In Ireland, when drinking folks gather to sing traditional songs of their culture it’s called a pub session. At Maguire’s Hill 16 (535 North Andrews Avenue), it’s called karaoke.

Now, while participating in traditional pub activities (throwing darts and chugging Guinness), you might also hear heartfelt renditions of “Danny Boy” and “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” drifting in from the back bar. Or (shudder) “I Will Survive.” Yep. The Irish pub is turning Japanese — at least on Wednesday nights from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., when DJ Sapphire brings karaoke to the bangers and mash crowd. Show up in that magical, musical time frame, and you too can sing traditional songs of your culture: “Like a Virgin,” “Friends in Low Places,” and “American Pie.” It’s free. Call 954-764-4453.
