FIRST EVER RUM TASTING

Join Silverlake Wine at Three Clubs on Wed. March 24th at 7pm for our first ever Rum Tasting. This is a great opportunity to learn about how rum is made, the history of rum drinks and to taste six different rums, plus two rum cocktails. The cost of the tasting is $35, cash only, at the door.
We will also take orders for the rums being poured. All orders taken on the night of the tasting will receive a 15% discount from the regular shelf price and will be available for pick up at the store.

This event is by reservation only and space is limited. Call Silverlake
Wine: 323-662-9024 to reserve. Please do not call Three Clubs.

Three Clubs is located at: 1123 Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90038

Okay, sorry about that. I'm sure they're serving up something better than Bacardi. Coco Joe, can you give us some hints?

Actually, Silverlake Wine has a pretty great rum selection. It's where I go when I need Coruba and St. James, and they have a rotating selection of small-batch rarer stuff as well. I would expect that this is a serious rum tasting.

Dang, I had no idea that such a rum depot exists right down the hill from me! (Though the pic they're showing does not seem to show many). I have driven by that place 100 times, but never looked inside. Being a wine non-connoisseur I am usually happy with my Trader Joe's two buck chuck. Kinda ironic that it was the wine fad in the 70s that contributed to killing Polynesian cocktails, and now wine stores are bringing rum back.
