National Rum Day

I just had to post this. Click the image for a closer look. Isn't it outrageous? National Rum Day is officially August 16th, but the folks at Mother's Ruin couldn't help but start early. On August 12 from 6-8pm, help them celebrate with a do-it-yourself Bloody Jerry bar! While the boys behind the bar mix up the dastardly drink featuring Sailor Jerry Rum, take a gander at garnishes that include pickles, sliders, SJ glazed bacon, pizza bites, mini hot dogs, waffle fries and wings...well, you'll just have to see it for yourself!

Mother's Ruin is located at 18 Spring St, NYC,

The folks at Cuba are making a go of it too with Mixology Week, August 8-15. Amid the grand spirit of old Havana and pulsing, live Cuban music, mixologists Eduardo Tavares and Raul Palacios are serving up a bunch of rum cocktails crafted from tropical fruits and herbs, featuring a flair for exotica. There's a different cocktail for each day of the celebration, so clear your calendar. You might want to even try the authentic cuisine too!
