Rum Runners

I submitted the following five-cent review of Rum Runners in Raleigh, for Barstar.com. We’ll see if it gets posted.

You pay a premium when you visit Rum Runners — from the $5 cover charge, to the $4.50 plastic Solo cup of Guinness, and of course for the $2-5 request per song you’ll fork over to the pianist(s). However, the point of going to a place like Rum Runners is to have fun, and this is certainly a place to do it. It gets packed in the summertime, so if you’re afraid of a little sweat in your beer, this isn’t your place. But if you want to get together with a group of friends, sing classic songs with an added touch of humour, and watch the bawdy jokes made at the expense of birthday girls and brides-to-be, this is your place; overall, it’s a lot of fun.
