I don’t know where I first read it, and I certainly don’t know if it’s officially registered, by according to my calendar, August 16th (today) is NATIONAL RUM DAY! I recommend celebrating with filtered water and selfless acts of public service – but only for the first hour or so to build up some goodwill before going on an all day bender of Goslings, Sea Wynde, Appleton, Myers’, and all your other favs!
National be the sticking point as it were. The story in the link that notes the holiday is in Barbados. Just one more good reason to move to the Caribbean.
