Four nights a week, amateur crooners and rockers are encouraged to sign up and belt out their favorite hits at Monterey’s iconic pub know as The Brit. And guess what: The ’80s never left the building. You feeling “Hungry Like the Wolf?” Go ahead and channel your inner Duran Duran. “Jack and Diane” from John Cougar is yours for the taking; the lyrics scroll while the power chords churn from the speakers. And naturally as the night rolls on, Tone Loc might inspire you to step up to the mic and do the “Wild Thing.” The Brit reigns supreme in timeless tribute to good times and good tunes.
