This may be the most incredibly awesome Karaoke bar we’ve ever seen. Behold the wondrous themed rooms of The Highball, located in Austin, TX, adjacent to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. The Highball just reopened after 18 months of extensive renovations, including seven outrageously themed karaoke rooms, including - yes - a Twin Peaks-themed room, created by Space Warp Design. The other rooms are Midnight Manor, The Inferno, Freaks, Joysticks, Truly Outrageous, and The 5th Dimensions. Each one features new song lists, state-of-the-art equipment and cocktail bottle services.
In addition to its uniquely themed karaoke rooms, The Highball features a full-service bar, dance floor, stage, lounge area and a formal outdoor patio. Even if you aren’t into karaoke this place feels like an awesome spectacle to behold.

Thanks for the laughter and the light, Robin.
DECATUR, Ga. — Police are searching for suspects in a deadly Decatur kidnapping.
Authorities say a man and a woman were kidnapped early Saturday morning and found just a few hours later handcuffed and each shot in the head. Their families have pulled together a $15,000 reward for anyone who can tell them who did it.
The family says Jeronta Brown and his fiance, Briana Brooks, took their 8-month-old baby and 14-year-old niece out for a meal. When they got back to their Decatur home, several men jumped them.
The children were able to get away, but Brown and Brooks were put into the back of a van.
Brown’s aunt, Myesha Brown, said the men tried to get inside the house before leaving.
"The guys walked up, started ringing on the doorbell, beating on the door, yelling, ‘FBI, FBI,’" Brown said.
Instead of opening the door, Brown said they called 911. Police did show up, but Brown said they didn’t take the kidnapping seriously.
"We were unable to get the kidnappers what they wanted due to Dekalb County thinking that this was a joke, this was something Jeronta set up," she said.
Brown said a family member got a call shortly after the kidnappers took off, demanding $150,000.
By daybreak, a driver 17 miles away in northwest Atlanta spotted Brooks and Brown lying in the street.
Jerota Brown was dead. Brooks, seven months pregnant with the couple’s second child, was alive. Doctors were able to deliver the baby girl by C-section. Brown says the infant is doing fine, but Brooks’ condition remains uncertain.
DeKalb County police were unavailable to talk about the crime and their response to it because of the holiday weekend.
