Tonight: 8 Rivers hosts its inaugural Rhum Club Tasting and Food Pairing

Talk Like a Pirate Day was a month ago, but no matter -- any day is a good one for rum-swilling. And at 6 p.m. tonight, 8 Rivers Cafe, 1550 Blake Street, will hold its inaugural Rhum Club Tasting and Food Pairing, mating fine rums with Cuban-inspired food.

The tasting menu will feature a Matusalem Platino mojito paired with ensalada de aguacate, a Matusalem Classico Cafe con Leche martini paired with smoked pork empanadas, and Matusalem Gran Reserva paired with beefsteak cubano.

Dinner is $40, and reservations are required; call 303-623-3422 or go to
