The first three weekend of October has been spent in three different places, so last weekend, I was more than happy to just stay put in Manila. Saturday was spent with grade school classmates whom I haven’t seen in years, while Sunday was spent with high school friends whom I haven’t seen in months.
It was timely that Joyce sent me an invite to try out Redbox’s latest offerings. Singing your heart out has always been a great way to de-stress, and since it’s a karaoke place, you don’t have to worry about neighbors complaining.
Redbox offers clean, spacious rooms for different sized groups. Singing’s not the only thing to do at Redbox — you can also play your favorite Wii games in selected branches. When you get hungry while belting out your favorite tunes, fret not because Redbox got you covered. Aside from typical Karaoke snacks, they offer hearty entrees like pastas (the creamy garlic chicken pasta is exquisite) and Pinoy favorites (sisig, lechon kawali and crispy pata, omg).
That afternoon, we enjoyed plates of calamari, chili cheese sticks, cheese steak sandwich, which we paired off with lemonades and iced tea. Redbox actually offer a wide range of drinks, from cocktails to top international beer brands like Stella Artois and Corona (to help you get the courage to sing out loud and embarass yourself further, I guess). If beer’s not your thing, you can also opt to order coffee or tea instead from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
We sang songs from high school — songs that never fail to make us laugh and remember the good times. Definitely the best way to ease off the stress from the week, and leave you ready to face a new one with a smile.
