I was traveling through Pocatello on a business trip and was staying at a hotel just down the street. After a long day, I just wanted a decent meal and to watch the playoff basketball game in a comfortable setting other than my hotel room. I walked here and ordered a beverage. It was almost 9pm. Apparently, a couple days of the week - Applebees has karaoke in the bar area starting at 9pm. The DJ turned all the TVs (several of them) from various sporting events to his screen for karaoke. Then started blasting a rap song laden with profanity! 9pm on a Wed. At your local family restaurant? Now, I liked the song - when I am at the club! Not when I am looking to relax with a cold beverage and a decent meal. I never got to the food - I left. Went to another hotel down the street that has a restaurant/lounge. Had a nice meal, watched the game - visited with some nice folks. Won't be back to Applebees in Pokey! Come on - I'm no prude - but there is no reason to be blaring music with questionable word choices during a time when families are out to eat on a Wed.
