I was wondering if a location has been selected for the Festival? I live nearly 5 hours away, so I'll need to make hotel arrangements (and hopefully at a hotel within walking/staggering distance)...

The venue will be Bottom Lounge 1375 W Lake St., just east of Ashland under the Green line tracks.

The Chicago Chapter of the USBG (US Bartenders Guild) will be doing 2 classic rum cocktail seminars on Saturday afternoon during the Chicago Rum Festival.

To date there are 13 companies and more than 33 rums confirmed, among them are Flor de Cana, Mount Gay, La Favorite, Neisson, Cabana Cachaça, El Dorado, Prichard's, Scarlet Ibis and some other new rums that you can't buy in the wider market yet.

And there are more rums being added. More

This could be a good time to gain some knowledge, what with being a newb and all. Are the forum members staying at one hotel, hanging out

Unfortunately, there isn't a hotel next door but if you're coming up I'd suggest checking out Hotwire. The closest would be North Loop or Streeterville. The venue is two blocks east of the Ashland Ave Green Line CTA stop. It's an easy stop from the loop on the el or about a mile and a half cab ride.

Default Chicago Rum Festival

So it turns out that I am going to be in Chicago for at least the second day of the Chicago Rum Festival. Who is going to be there?

Also, Ed, are there any extra special treats in store?

Cheers. - S

(As an aside, assuming this doesn't get deleted, which it might deserve as I just saw the post in the events thread, this is the 500th thread in the main forum. Congrats Ed!)

I'm updating the listing almost every day so you can take a look. While I can't list all of the rums at this point, I can tell you that there will be several rums there that are limited editions, like Scarlet Ibis, if Eric doesn't drink it all in the next two weeks. Some St Vincent Extra Gold in addition to a few rums that I'm told are only being released in three other markets since they are still in the test market stage of development.

I don't think anyone will be disappointed. I'm working with the suppliers to make this the best it can be for the consumers, bartenders and the rum suppliers.

There will be door prizes from the Ministry of Rum and from some of the rum companies.

Some of the best bartenders in Chicago will also be there and of course there will be plenty of discussion about rum from the rum loving community.

I've been too busy to post anything the last few days. There is a lot of planning being done to make this the best that it can be. The support of the suppliers has been extremely good, all kinds of people are jumping through hoops to bring you the biggest selection of rums in a relaxed atmosphere so you can really enjoy all there is to savor.

Hope to see some of you in Chicago.
