Island Fever at Rumba

8/05/2009 12:02:00 AM
Ya'll know how much I love the Intercontinental. It's even better now that they've got an full bar outside in their terrace. But starting this past weekend they're kicking it up a notch(sorry, I should have gotten this up sooner) by launching an "Island Fever" event on the first Saturday of each month.

RumBa, InterContinental Boston’s popular rum & champagne bar featuring 100 rums from around the world, heats up through the end of the year Caribbean-style launching its new first-Saturday-of-the-month party series: ‘Island Fever…The Journey Starts Here’. Running from August - December 2009 on the first Saturday of every month from 9 p.m. - 1 a.m., RumBa’s ‘Island Fever’ series highlights rums from some of the Caribbean’s most popular rum-producing countries along with featured cocktails.

Guests who purchase a Caribbean Passport ($20 - one time fee) are eligible (up to 5 times) to win a weekend for two in Puerto Rico at the InterContinental San Juan Resort & Casino located on Isla Verde, San Juan's best beach, and also includes airfare for two and a tour of the Bacardi rum distillery, the world’s largest. The Passport includes 5 tickets (one for each country) and must be redeemed at each according ‘Island Fever’ party (e.g. the Bermuda ticket is given at the Bermuda ‘Island Fever’ party). The drawing will take place at the December 5, 2009 Puerto Rico ‘Island Fever’ Party (winner need not be present to win). The Caribbean Passport also series allows access to RumBa’s exclusive Champagne Lounge where complimentary appetizers and desserts will be served for Passport holders only from 9 p.m. - 11 p.m.

For the first hour at each ‘Island Fever’ party, SPA InterContinental, the hotel’s 6,600 spa, will be offering complimentary mini-massages and Darque Tan, a luxury tanning salon chain, will be providing give-a-ways throughout each evening.

Apologies again for failing to post this prior to the inaugural Aug 1 Jamaica event. We'll just have to make up for it by drinking more at each of the four remaining events.
