Get Your Folly Feast Tickets Now!

The Folly Feast is an amazingly great time. For as little as $100 you will get a full three days of some of the craziest fun you have ever experienced without getting dusty. You would probably spend more if you stayed in the city that weekend and this event includes it all, even food and some booze. You can even BYOB. You can get on the Applause Bus on Friday night, Chicken John will drive. You will arrive at the Silver Queen and there will be rooms ready for you. There may not be a bed for everyone, so you may need to share, but there will be plenty of room.

We will have the entire hotel Sunday night as well, so feel free to bring a festive nightgown, fantastic robes or extravagant lingerie for a slumber party! If you are driving you are welcome to come on Friday and leave Monday. There are 300 guests and 28 rooms, so bring your own sleeping bag if you plan to stay the night. For those who would like to reserve a private room, we have some great reserved rooms in nearby hotels with a checkout time of 5pm Sunday. These private rooms cost extra, so contact us for details and make a full getaway weekend of it!

The town of Virginia City is a spectacularly beautiful historic little town. The views are breathtaking, the architecture is 1870s fabulous, the little shops and bars are amazing; there is even a planked sidewalk. There are hobby gunslingers, a man that has been walking his mule for years, long bearded cowboys… and none of in is fake. These people are for real! They are living it and you get to be a part of it for a weekend.

Then There is the Folly Feast! It is an all night costume ball that starts out as a feast! Yes…dinner is included in that $100! And the food is crazy good. Turkey legs, tri-tip, roasted vegetables, macaroni and cheese, salad, 3 kinds of bread pudding and I forgot what else…It is all made fresh and it is fabulous. If there are special food needs we can make it happen. Let us know.

During the Feast there is entertainment. Tons of it! There are burlesque acts, there is the Wink & Yoni show, Rube Waddell will play, The Mark Growden Quartet will play, Freddi Price is bringing his guitar; your mind will be blown by how amazing the entertainment is.

After the Feast begins the Folly starts. The Folly is all the little things that go on during the party. There are short-term weddings where you can get married to all of your friends or someone you have never met before. Its OK, it will automatically annul in just a few hours. You’re good! Five years from now you will be able to say “we were married once” and it will be fun then too! I promise!

It goes even further. There is a TON of Folly to be had at the Folly Feast. Each one of the 28 hotel rooms is its own little party. One of the rooms will feature these two amazing women who call themselves SPARKBOX. They are amazing. They have both played the Great American Music Hall with their perspective bands and you will be able to see them in a tiny hotel room. It will be beautiful.

Then there is Carletta Sue Kay. There is not nearly enough room here to describe Carletta Sue Kay. Let’s just say you will laugh, you will cry and you will be covered in goosebumps. Carletta Sue Kay also sells out the Great American Music Hall (GAMH).

Then Mark Growden will be walking through the halls and in various rooms playing his accordion. Mark Growden has sold out the GAMH many times. He is amazing! He sells out on nation wide tours.

And Rube Waddell will be playing! They are incredible! You will dance your asses off! They are one of my all time favorite bands to see play live and they don’t play that often any more. They are fantastic! You will want to get their albums!

The Saloon will also be open all night. There will be hot women and men down there. You will be able to dance and flirt. You may even wind up marrying one or two or five of them if you are smooth enough or maybe if they are drunk enough. But again, no harm. It will be annulled before they can even remember and your piece of paper won’t mean anything accept that it will put a smile on your face for years to come and you will have made a new friend. It’s great. I am still friends with the five women I married at Chicken’s Lost Vegas in 1998! It is a fun thing to do and Dr. Hal is amazing. He will blow your mind.

And there are 28 hotel rooms…I just described 3 or 4 of them…and there are 28! Then there is the Saloon, the Wedding Chapel and a Parlor. I could go on for pages!

Then, if you are on the bus you will be back in San Francisco Sunday night. No one at work will even have to know you were gone…you may have to explain the grin on your face, but I’m sure you can handle that. And all you spent was $100. Please…what else do I need to do? Come to my party already! All the info is on the website: (it currently forwards to, but I’m not going to fix that until after the party.) You can also invite people via the Facebook event:

See you in seven days!

Costume Karaoke Photos

As you probably know, I host karaoke at the Deco Lounge every Tuesday and Thursday and on Thursday I usually bring a huge rack of costumes and accessories and run a costume karaoke night, that I call “Costume Karaoke”:). The Costume Karaoke nights have been a super fun. Here are some photos that I took on the costume nights…

Karaoke Word Challenge game rules

“Karaoke Word Challenge” (KWC) game

7-9pm every Tuesday at the Deco Lounge, before the regular karaoke begins!

Loosely based on the board game called “Encore”, the KWC tests your knowledge of songs and challenges karaoke singers to sing songs they would not normally sing. It is a play on the karaoke rock block using a word as the factor that qualifies a song as a valid song for the round instead of an artist.

The winners get a “KJPaul Jump the Line” card that is valid at any KJ Paul’s regular karaoke nights. Here are the rules.

KJPaul runs a weekly KWC game every Tuesday 7-9pm at the Deco Lounge, 510 Larkin St. At 9pm the regular karaoke night begins.

Starting the game

The KWC is a game where the first player picks a number between 1 and 6 and then draws a card from the KWC deck. The word or phrase corresponding to the number is the word in play for the round.

Entering the game

Anyone who wants to be a part of the game puts their name on the list to hold their place in the lineup. The first player has one minute to think of a song to sing and all subsequent singers must turn in a slip with their choice by the time the singer before them finishes their song or they will have to wait until their turn in the next round until the game is over and a new one begins. Anyone coming into the game late will be placed at the end of the queue for the round. If the word is still in play after going through the queue once, the round is over and a new round begins from the beginning of the queue. This continues until the time runs out (i.e. it is 9pm) or until someone wins or losses the round.

Valid songs

Songs containing the word in play in the title or anywhere it the song is valid. An artist name containing the word in play can only be used once in the game.

How to win

If you are the last person to come up with a valid song you are the winner. The winner gets a KJ Paul “Jump the Line Card”, which is valid at any of KJ Paul’s karaoke nights.

There will also be consolation prizes given to people who the audience and the KJ judge as having made a particularly challenging choice, such as the word being hidden in the song and only occurring once or for singing a song they have never even heard before and giving it a good shot. There are only a limited number of consolation prizes so how they are given out will depend on how the night is going.

How to loose

If anyone sings an invalid song, the game is over and a new game beings with the last person who sang a valid song. They get to start the round and sing the first song. The person who lost is placed at the end of the queue for the next game.

History of the Karaoke Word Challenge game

The karaoke word challenge is a game based of a board game that KJ Paul found on the sidewalk while going for coffee one morning. The game is called “Encore” with the tag line “how many songs can you remember”. I obviously can’t call the game Encore Karaoke, so I am calling it the Karaoke Word Challenge.

New direction for this blog

I have been very impressed lately with the songs people are choosing to sing and I am going to start sharing the nightly playlists for a while. I think it will be great to see the different types of songs people sing at the various venues. It will also be a great resource for finding songs to sing.

Last night we had a series of great rock-block challenges, starting with Diana Ross, then Madonna and finally Prince. The rock blocks are a great way to get out of your comfort zone and try something new.

So without further ado, here is last nights list!
