RUM-TOA: Rare, Exotic Rums + Modern Tiki
LIVE MUSIC + TIKI COCKTAILS
RUMTOA on April 25 @ The Manifest (Chinatown) reprises the tiki theme of Eruption Music Festival's "Cocktail-Toa" with a party focused specifically on rum and its modern incantations.
We are proud to feature EL DORADO RUMS, insanely smooth, dark rums from Guyana ... and never before seen or drank in Hawaii!! These rums are the powerhouse behind the most exotic of tiki potions. A perfect match for live music by WAITIKI!
