Default San Francisco Rum Festival

I'm on my way to San Francisco to start the long process of organizing the next San Francisco Ministry of Rum Festival.

It's a long process to even get to San Francisco. I'll go to NY then down to Washington DC then fly to San Francisco Monday.

As the event details are confirmed I'll be posting more information here.

Getting help isn't the hard part. Getting a venue that I can afford, the licenses required to do a special tasting event in California, food, vendors, cups, glasses, trash cans, toilets and a long list of extraneous miscellaneous things that have to be done.

And that's the short list!

But then if it was easy everyone would be doing it.

The venue was the Hangar One distillery facility in Oakland. There were over 200 people attending. I'll post more as details develop.

Hi Edward,

Do you have any dates in mind ? I'm asking 'cause there's a possibility of me going in SF in May. I see that last year it was end of April.
