Travel Day: Conchy Tonkin' To the Miami Rum Festival

     Today I leave the rock and head for Miami and the Rum Festival for 2016.  It is always a fun trip to Miami and visiting so many of the interesting places that line the keys.  This year I am lacking my friend John Gibbons who could not make it to the festival this year, but the journey must go on in spite.

     Today was a bit tame than in previous years.  Without my friends aboard I pretty much just drove straight through and took care of some Miami errands and an all important stop at Total Wine and More to check out the Rum shelves and pick up a couple of bottles for home.

     I will be bringing you all of the news from the festival starting tomorrow when the judging begins and we start our meetings with the producers to see what is new in the rum world for this year.

     Remember to get on line and get your tickets before they are sold out.   They are available at http://www.rumrenaissance.com/Tickets.html  .  There are a very limited number of tickets that may be available at the door.  Don't take a chance and be disappointed get them on line today.
