Every second Saturday in Media, Pa. Front Street Fountain has Karaoke for kids and adults. The newly expanded menu has choices for all. Pat, the owner, and Kevin the MC have as much fun and the patrons, especially the young performers.

This is the greatest place to go with young kids. There is a huge chalkboard, child size tables and chairs, and several tv's. Only gave it three stars because their food is mediocre. The good side of average, but would be better if they could...More
