We're back at one of our favorite restaurants in November!

The month of October is coming to an end, which means that yesterday we said goodbye to Chrome Horse Saloon over in the NewBo District. We've had some amazing lunches over the course of the month, but it's time for us to move on to our FINAL Listener Lunch restaurant of the year.

All five Tuesdays in the month of November, Brain and I will be enjoying lunch at Runt's Munchies here in Downtown Cedar Rapids! Located at 529 5th Ave SE, Runt's has faced some difficult circumstances these past few months. In addition to the impact made by COVID-19, Runt's has also been dealing with construction RIGHT outside their door. According to a KCRG article from July, the "hidden gem has lost half of its business because of road closures." Currently, the only way to access the restaurant is via 5th Ave on the library side.

If you've never been to Runt's before, the menu has all sorts of amazing fried foods like egg rolls and loaded mashed potato bombs, plus wings, wraps, salads, sliders, and more! And don't forget about all the baked goods in the "Case of Yum." Here are some photos from our MANY former visits:

If you and six of your coworkers would like to join us at Runt's Munchies for some free lunch on a Tuesday in November at 11:30 a.m., make sure you get signed up HERE. Once you've sent in your entry, you're in for the remainder of the year. We will start fresh in January of 2022!
