Around this time of year, I sorely miss the Manhattan Inn and piano karaoke with Joe McGinty. Sitting the intimate back room around a white baby grand, Old Fashioned in hand, and listening as your fellow revelers crooned to songs accompanied by the bandleader of the Loser’s Lounge was a classic holiday experience. You can come close to recreating it at Sid Gold’s in Chelsea on Tuesday night, with one of McGinty’s bandmates, Wendy Ip, on the ivories. You’ll need to order two drinks, which should be just the right amount for you to attempt Joni Mitchell, Frank, or Stevie. 9pm-1am, Sid Gold’s, 165 W. 26th St.
