It’s time again to celebrate the Caribbean’s most famous spirit with José Andrés and his team at Café Atlántico during the 3rd Annual Rum Weekend from September 2 through September 5. This year’s Rum Weekend has a Haitian accent and provides the chance for Washingtonians to sample rum flights, specialty cocktails and menu items inspired by the Caribbean nation. Café Atlántico is partnering with Rhum Barbancourt, one of the world’s finest producers of rum and one of the island’s oldest businesses. By focusing on Haiti, Café Atlántico hopes to help raise awareness of the ongoing efforts to rebuild the country following January’s devastating earthquake.

On Friday, September 3rd, guests are encouraged to stop by Café Atlántico to enjoy a rum tasting featuring rums from top producers including Rhum Barbancourt, Mount Gay and Appleton Estate. The tasting is free to the public and runs from 4:00 PM until 6:00 PM. Guests must be 21 or older to participate and will need to present valid ID. For information, guests should call (202) 393-0812.
