Dust off your vocal cords then head with friends to Black Duck Cafe in Westport any week for Karaoke Tuesday at 8 p.m., something of a "cultural phenomenon" at the popular waterside restaurant.
Owner Peter Aitkin started the Karaoke Tuesday "27 or 28 years ago. It was popular when we started and for the first five to ten years. I thought it was just going to be a fad but it's a cultural phenomenon. We have a great guy (Bill Richard) and get some very good singers and some not so good singers which can be entertaining and fun too," Aitkin said in an interview.
Walk or drive up to the restaurant at 605 Riverside Drive opposite the Westport Metro-North station or go by boat— you can dock at Black Duck Cafe.
There's an outside patio to enjoy the river view with a brew or meal from a menu that includes an array of hamburgers which pay homage to Westport's past.
"Definitely a locals bar near the train tracks. It's tight, a hole in the wall and has the feeling of a lot of history (if the walls could talk). Grab a drink, this "cafe" has a just relax type of feel," says a post on Google by David Blaut.
