Key West Bacchanalia was a Fun Time for All Attending

     The 2012 Key West Bacchanalia was a success and a really fun time for those attending last weekend.   I enjoyed my visits to the events on Friday and Saturday.     The Ron Zacapa and the Rums of Puerto Rico were of particular interest to me, being the rum guy that I am, but the cooking and mixology events were interesting also.

     Eric Morles Snyder, Rum Ambassador from Rums of Puerto Rico and his crew did a wonderful job of showcasing their line of fine rums.   Both the events on Friday evening at the Hurricane Hole and at Rick's on Saturday evening were a lot of fun and I enjoyed sampling some of the fine rums and cocktails.

      Robert Pallone, Florida Rum Ambassador for Ron Zacapa and his lovely assistants were on had to make sure we enjoyed the fine rums of Ron Zacapa as well.   I particularly enjoyed the Ron Zacapa XO that was offered on Friday night.   This is one of the fine rums of Guatemala, and always a popular rum among rum aficionados.  

     There was a good crowd around for all of the events and it would be my guess that a nice sum was raised to benefit  the Darrell Gwynn Foundation to be able to carry on their fine work with the paralyzed.   This was a great event that supported an even greater cause and I look forward to next years event as well.   ;o)
