Do you ever hear the track by Ke$ha, "There's someplace downtown where in actuality the freaks all come around. It really is a hole inside wall, it's a dirty free for all?" That tune is a great description of Rat in Binghamton, NY. The rat ended up being the home for the scorpion dish, Tuesday night alcohol pong tournaments, and DJ Decibel. It had been the sort of place you could never keep in mind whenever you woke up the next morning.. good thing for digital cameras to recapture your night.RIP Rathskeller 7.12.2005-4.13.2011 by CalvinReport definition
