CORRECTION:
I will NOT be spinning Lush-ious Exotica tunes. But I will be there. And my head will be spinning at least.

Awesome evening of rhum and rum. Thanks to Martin Cate for an awesome presentation. I always look forward to your Tiki Oasis presentations and this was just as informative. And thanks to everyone who put the event...passports, water, rums, snacks and everything else. I was so into the presentation I took exactly 0 pictures. But I'm positive photographic evidence is coming. Unfortunately Val and I had to call it an early evening, but we had a great time while we were there.

Thanks again,

kevin

Ok June 29th at 6pm the next meeting of the Rum Rhum Club! We have a special guest, I will update later today. We will be discussing and tasting Boutique and Hard to find Rums.

On a side note, I have tried unsuccessfully to do this on a consistent day. The issue is our guests have full schedules so I take what is convenient for them, When we do just vintage rums, we will do them on Sunday Exotica Nights. Thank you


Amy
