Default New York Ministry of Rum Festival

The New York Ministry of Rum Festival will take place Sept 20th at Papillon. Here's a link to the event page. I look forward to seeing you in NY. As usual forum members will receive discounted tickets to this event.

It is with great regret that I am announcing that the New York Ministry of Rum Festival scheduled for Sept 20 has been canceled. This event will be rescheduled in the coming months when there is more clarity in the law.

I look forward to announcing the new date but suffice it to say that no one is more disappointed than me that I won't be able to share some many great spirits with so many people that share my passion for sugar cane spirits.

Hi Ed-- According to your email message, you'll be in NYC anyway on Sept 20th. Please let us know if/when you'll be available to enjoy some rum. I'm sure we could arrange a small informal get together which brings together cool people and great rum.

This has nothing to do with Bloomberg, but rather the State regulators. In all fairness to the State of New York, there are a lot of regulatory inconsistencies and until they are sorted out the best thing I can do is steer clear of uncharted water.

I've not had a lot of luck dealing with government agencies so far in my life but after several hours dealing with the SLA, I have to admit that some, but not all, of them have been some of the best people with whom I have ever dealt.

I will be hosting an event in New York in the near future, but I need to make some preparations that take more than 18 days. The good news is that the next event will be better than ever. I'm not an attorney, nor do I play one on the internet but suffice it to say that only a fool would second guess the government regulators when alcohol is involved. Just one of the problems is that enforcement rules are changing and I can't afford to second guess what the State will do, and the truth is that they don't know what they're going to do either. At this point it wouldn't be prudent to put myself, vendors or a venue at risk of running afoul of the regulators or enforcement officials.
