The Rum Barrel
Key West


The BEER AND RUM DINNER at Pat Croce's Rum Barrel Key West was a HUGE hit!  It was great to be part of the
Key West Brewfest week of events!  

Pat Croce's  Rum Barrel Rum Club Key West met on Tuesday 2/26 
from 5 to 7ish PM for "RUMS OF ST. LUCIA"
and those popular $5 cocktails available ONLY during the meeting!

      A big thanks to Clyde Davis and St. Lucia Distillers!

As always, open to the public, and the public came in!! They learned about St. Lucia Rums, and imbibe our signature Rum Club cocktails!  Go to my "Rum Barrel Rum Club" link for our lineup and all the pictures - see if you're there!

A special thanks to Pat and Diane Croce for attending and mixing in with the fun!  Thanks, PC!
Just a few musician friends, dropping by 
for some Rums.....
Jim Morris, John Patti, and Jimi Pappas
came by Casa Artrip for an impromptu rum tasting prior to their 2/9 gig at Margaritaville Key West 
(I bet they went to the gig primed to perform!!) 
These guys are great musicians and performers, as their legions of fans already know.  Last gig in KW this week is Sunday 2/10 -
check them out if you're in town, and find them near you!
