We went out for dinner earlier this evening. Not long after we sat down, a group of about 20 middle age Russian tourists came in. A few minutes later an elderly American couple who had already eaten hurried out, mumbling loudly as they left that they preferred to miss the singing.
Sure enough, within 15-20 minutes one of the Russian men launched into song, and 15 minutes later the whole group was singing away merrily. And this was just from the wine. Only as we left were they starting on the Vodka.
Tho the music wasn't bad. Some of it even sounded a bit profound.
