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!

The Rum Barrel Rum Club, Key West met on Tuesday, January 22 from 5 to 7 PM.  The theme was "Celebration of Mount Gay Rums".  $5 cocktail prices to the Rum Club attendees who braved the cold! (well, cold for Key West.  Once it hits around 60 degrees with strong winds, it's downright arctic around here)
