One time you hired a Journey cover band to follow your friend around all night singing “Don’t Stop Believing” every time someone bought them a shot. Instead of losing another friend this year, spend a night at Venkman’s. This restaurant and concert hall in Old Fourth Ward is owned by members of Yacht Rock Revue, a local ’70s and ’80s soft rock cover band. So order a pastrami sandwich or pulled pork tacos, before giving your full attention to belting out the lyrics to those Steely Dan, Toto, and Doobie Brothers songs.
