I need help making my living room into a karaoke bar.

I love karaoke, my wife...not so much. It's mainly the crowds at karaoke bars she hates. I jokingly suggested we could get the equipment and just invite our karaoke friends over to the house so she wouldn't have to sit through yet another painful sorority girl/bachelorette party chorus version of "My Heart Will Go On", etc. She looked at me, and asked "You could do that?"
I have a friend who makes us custom karaoke CDs, and a home theatre system. For some reason, our fancy DVD player (a component of the home theatre, and not a great DVD player to begin with) does not play VCDs/CD+Gs...maybe because it's a five-disc thingy.
I figure we need a DVD player capable of playing VCDs/CG+Gs, two cordless microphones/stands, a small monitor and stand for the singer(s), a mixer to put the mics and DVD player through...maybe a strobe light.
Has anyone out there ever decided to make a tiny karaoke lounge in their house? Any tips? Tricks? Bargains? Help! Thanks.
