Rum Boogie Cafe, Memphis

Technically I had already been here a year ago, but it was only to use the restroom so I didn’t count it. :)

Tonight there was the standard $5 cover, but as we were about to pay we were informed that the band had just gone on break. We decided to head next door to Mr. Handy’s instead, where a band was playing, and paid the cover there.

Once inside though we discovered the place packed — too crowded to even stand. So we used the connecting door and headed back over to Rum Boogie after all (the cover applies to both places).

Rum Boogie Cafe wasn’t near as busy as it was when we were hear last year, but it still had a decent crowd. The band finally took the stage about 20 minutes after our arrival, so we ended up staying here for a couple of rounds of drinks. We would like to have stayed longer, but the overpowering perfume of an older woman who arrived during our second round told us that it was time to move along.
