Rum Bar Soap included, Rum Day DC returns to Washington for 2nd Edition, August 16 to August 18, 2013

Showcase events from Rum Day DC like Rum Runner Party Bus (on August 16) and Pool Side Punch Party surely sound like party time.

I hope there is time for sipping and enlightening palates in between and that independant producers have sizeable presence even though Bacardi seems to be main sponsor.


I did not expect Rum Bar Soap to be one of the items featured along cocktails.

This second edition of Rum Day DC takes place from August 16 to August 18, 2013.

Pre-event ABC's of Rum-Rum Cocktail Class takes place this evening (August 13), tickets are still on sale for thar Class for next 3 hours online. Price is $50 per person, Use code: RUMDAYDC for 30% OFF!

Tickets for all other Rum Day DC can be bought individually.
