Miss Bamboo just adores Tiki style and culture so what better than a Tiki Festival in her own home town Manchester. Miss and Big Bamboo hooked up with tiki pals Carla aka pin up model Coco Lopes and Martin McTiki of Atomic Coconut for some mad nights of rum fun. Atomic Coconut designed a fantastic limited edition tiki mug 'Mr Moai Tai' especially for the event.
Our first adventure took us to Hula Bar in Manchester for a Diplomatico tasting. A great talk was given by 'Skippy' and we even got to taste the elusive 'Single Reserve' that is not yet available for retail purchase - result!
Our next port of call was Revolucion de Cuba for a Mount Gay promotion including steel drum band and limbo dancing. Miss Bamboo was pleased to show off her limbo 'prowess'!? The Diplomatico rum, of previous, clearly helping, along with the Mount Gay rewards!!!!
|Hmmm, not the most glamorous but definitely good fun!|
Finally on to our very own home from home, The Liars Club for their 2nd Birthday celebrations and 'Appleton Rum' promotion.
|Miss Bamboo and Coco Lopes, start the night with a sophisticated Diplomatico.....|
|....however, many rums later !!!|
After a few recovery days it was time for the final closing party at The Liars Club, this time the old faithful favourite 'Sailor Jerry' was on the menu.
