Where did the year go?!
Yesterday Brain and I finished our last listening lunch of October at Chrome horse room in Cedar Rapids. While we’re sad to say goodbye, we’re also thrilled to announce which restaurant we’ll be eating at in November. November is the last month of the year that we host the Auditors’ Luncheon, so we’re off to a good start! For the next five Tuesdays, we will eat at…
Runt’s Snacks in Cedar Rapids!
Runt’s Munchies is one of our favorite hidden gems in Cedar Rapids. Just a few months ago they left their original location on 5th Ave SE and moved to a bigger location at 118 2nd St SE. This will be our first time eating Listener Lunch at the new restaurant, and we couldn’t be more excited!
Some of my favorite things to order from Runt’s Munchies are the F-Bomb Eggrolls, Garlic Parm Wings, Pickle Wrap Dip, and Loaded Mashed Potato Bombs. Honestly everything I’ve eaten there has been good. This includes the homemade jalapeno ranch dressing and ALL the candy inside the “Case of Yum!”
Since Monday, October 24, Runt’s Munchies has also started serving breakfast! Options include breakfast spring rolls, sandwiches, wraps, cookies and gravy, tiny pizzas, and more. The new hours are Monday to Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you would like to join us for one of our last listeners’ lunches of the year, all you have to do is register HERE. We meet on Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m. and winners can bring up to six people with them. We pick our winners on Friday morning around 9am, so be sure to answer the phone if we call. We look forward to eating with you and your colleagues!
