LAKE CHARLES, Louisiana | S&B Events goes live with VIP tickets for their next great event that gives back – Rum Revival. This spring celebration of rum, tequila, and Caribbean cuisine will take place at Golden Nugget Lake Charles on April 6th, 2024, from 5-9pm.

The events in S&B’s annual line-up are comprised of three main components – fine spirits, great cuisine, and unique entertainment. Attendees will have endless access to over 70 different rum and tequila labels as well as tropical cocktails for sampling. The food component will consist of eight local restaurants (Area 337, Crying Eagle Brewing, The James 710, Lulu’s, Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar, The Charthouse, Draft Kings, and Landry’s Seafood) preparing Caribbean inspired cuisine for the tasting. The third component that ties this culturally rich experience together will be live entertainment by Bonerama, a brass, funk band out of New Orleans. Tropical attire for attendees is also encouraged.


The three-day event begins on Thursday and ends with a designated after-party on Saturday night. The grand tasting is a 4-hour event on Saturday, but Rum Revival weekend is an extended weekend experience! Along with the grand tasting, there are two cocktail pairing dinners that lead up to Saturday’s festivities. These seated, multi-course dinners are Caribbean themed and feature a spirit that is chosen by this year’s spirits sponsors. Each course and paired cocktail are built around the chosen label’s flavor, nodes, and aroma, and truly show the art and complexity of fine spirits. The weekend line-up allows local chefs to experiment with mouthwatering culinary creations and showcase their talents for current and new engaged audiences. 


Each great event produced by S&B Events helps the non-profit fulfill its mission by raising funding for its charitable beneficiary United Way of Southwest Louisiana. President and CEO of UWSWLA, Denise Durel, thanks co-founders of S&B for their “creative and innovative way of raising funds that support our community.” Their two annual events, Smoke & Barrel in the fall and Rum Revival in the spring, provide full scholarships for children between 0-6 to attend day school through a program called Success by 6.


VIP tickets for Rum Revival went on sale Friday, February 2nd and will be available until they are sold-out! Tickets give attendees all-inclusive access to fine spirits, great cuisine, and a front row seat to lively entertainment. Along with hosting the event, Friday night’s dinner, and the After Party, Golden Nugget Lake Charles is also offering room discounts for all ticket holders during the Rum Revival weekend.
