Best Open Mic

Whether you need a good laugh or want to play your music in front of an audience, open mic nights offer folks the chance to put their talents on display. Expect a crowd during open mic at The Plus (208 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire) – this hot spot takes first for its supportive environment and awesome apps and taps. Open mic at The Mousetrap (311 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire), which takes place every Sunday night, snagged second place, and The Stones Throw Thursday Night Open Stage (304 Eau Claire St., Eau Claire) rounds out the pack. – Natalie Rosenkranz
