I'm sure you know by now that I don't just like beer, I'm a happy whiskey drinker as well. What many of you probably don't know is that I'm also fond of aged rum (and have been known to knock back a nicely made rum punch as well). So I was happy to see a release from Cuba Libre here in Philly noting that tomorrow, August 16, is National Rum Day! Check it out:
Did you know tomorrow, Tuesday, August 16 is National Rum Day? Well, now you do. And where better to celebrate than the place boasting region’s best selection of rum and rum cocktails? We’re talking about Cuba Libre Restaurant and Rum Bar (10 South 2nd Street, 215-627-0666), of course.
During "Caippy Hour" from 5-7 p.m., they will offer their extensive collection of over 70 rums and 35 rum cocktails at half price. Cuba Libre has had quite the love affair with rum over the years - even labeling seven rums as their own - and they’re excited to pass it on. So be sure to enlist the expert staff to help you find the one, or two, that’s just right for you. Whether it’s a mojito or mai tai, or a glass of Cuba Libre 21 Year or Cruzan Cream, there truly is a rum for everyone.
They're right, you know: if you haven't had a rum you like, man, you just ain't tryin'! So get your butts down to Cuba Libre (psst...or the Rum Bar, if you're closer to Rittenhouse Square (but I'll be at Cuba Libre!)) or -- surprisingly -- to Rumrunners in Williamsport, and try some rum!
