BLACK TOT DAY - TUESDAY JULY 31

HALF PRICE ALL NAVY RUM DRINKS - ALL DAY LONG

On July 31, 1970, the British Navy eliminated rum rations for their sailors. A very sad day for all rum drinkers. Come join us at Frankie's Tiki Room and say yes to rum!!

Tomorrow is Black Tot Day!

From the Pusser's Rum website.
www.pussers.com/t-folklore.aspx

Black Tot Day - July 31st, 1970, when the last "tot was drawn in the fleet around the globe; a rather touchy subject with the old and bold!" Black Tot Day was officially the last day that Pusser's Rum was issued on board ships in the Royal Navy.

320 Main in Seal Beach, CA is also having a Black Tot celebration at 7pm tonight.

The event is too rich for me, but I hope somebody is able to make it.

www.blacktot.com has a cool website.

That Black Tot dinner is a great deal. Smugglers Cove charges $100 for a shot of Black Tot rum w/no food as they have never served any.
