BEST PLACE FOR KARAOKE

Any place Jacqie Jackson appears.

“Basically, I’m Ward Cleaver in a dress,” she says. “I’m a heterosexual male cross-dresser.” At home, he’s Bill Jackson, a retired schoolteacher. At work in restaurants and clubs throughout the county, she’s Jacqie, hostess of “Jacqieoke,” a tune-belting good-time gal who knows how to make shy men and women stand up and sing along. Catch her at Benny’s on the Beach every Wednesday, noon to 9 p.m., and Fridays noon to 9 p.m. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. For other dates, 314-520-6021.
