When you think about Christmas, there are certain things that come to mind. The food (turkey and mince pies), the decorations (baubles, tinsel and fairy lights), and the music (Wizzard, Michael Buble and Wham!).
As soon as November 1 hits, you can’t turn on the radio without hearing Mariah Carey belting out the lyrics to All I Want for Christmas is You.
If you’re not already sick to death of the festive tunes, head down to Txoko every Friday from November 15 until December 27 for the karaoke competition.
Every week, three people will win and go through to the grand finale on December 27, where the overall winner will then win a stay in one of The Domain Hotel and Spa’s luxury suites.
Not bad for a few minutes of your time.
JJ’s Irish Restaurant is also running a karaoke competition this Christmas with a BHD700 prize.
Just like Txoko’s contest, you’ll need to win one of the preliminary rounds (which take place every Tueday from November 5 until December 10) to be in with a chance of taking home the main prize on December 17.
Runners up will win BHD200 and BHD100.
Free entry. Every Fri 4.30pm-10pm. The Domain Hotel and Spa, Diplomatic Area (1600 0000).
