Atlas Obscura: Intoxicating Spirits: Slaves, Scurvy & Pirates: The History of Rum

DNA Lounge (375 11th St, San Francisco, CA 94103) Map it $20

Perhaps more than any other liquor, rum's complicated history can be credited with changing the world - sometimes for the better, other times, perhaps not.

The best friend of pirate and Navy man alike, rum played a crucial role in curing the dreaded sailor's disease of scurvy, yet also enabled the horrors of the slave trade.

Join us for an evening exploration of the fascinating story of rum, and learn why "Splice the Mainbrace" is not as terrible a shipboard command as it may sound.
