A Hot Rum Festival!
On Saturday October 26, 2013, Playmas Montreal Cultural Association and A
Taste of the Caribbean Festival present a unique and thrilling event that focuses on
the exquisite art of blending fine cane spirits in cocktails, never before sampled in
Montreal. Savvy rum aficionados will discover a truly remarkable range of fine rums
from the Caribbean and enjoy the excitement of mouth-watering island dishes catered
by Chef Gregory Charles. Chef Gregory has promised us a gastronomic celebration of
rum, e.g. Coconut Shrimp in Pineapple and Rum Butter, Conch Fritters in Hot Rum
Sauce and other exquisite delights. This unique event will take place at the elegant
Eveagreen Reception Hall, 5011 Buchan Street, Montreal. Reserve your tickets
