  • Calahan’s Pub is offering $5 Rum Punch and Blue Hawaiian cocktails to-go.
Captain Jack Sparrow isn’t necessarily the best role model for a slew of reasons, but we can agree that the man knew a good tipple when he tasted it.

While Sparrow drank his rum from questionable, sand-covered vessels rather than at craft cocktail establishments, we still think he'd appreciate that there's a national holiday dedicated to his favorite libation.



National Rum Day is Sunday, August 16, and these three spots are offering up boozy, island-inspired rum cocktails to-go — little umbrellas not included.

Just a short drive north of SA is Calahan’s Pub in New Braunfels, offering $5 Rum Punch and Blue Hawaiian cocktails to-go. You must order food and show your ID to take these adult juice pouches home, so make sure to check out the place's $10 COVID-19 special on 16-inch pizzas before placing your order. Calahan’s Pub, 194 W. San Antonio St. New Braunfels, (830) 609-9782, calahanspubandpizza.com.

Squeezebox is holding another curbside event, inspired by the food and drink of good ol’ New Orleans. Po’ boys, red beans and rice, Pimm’s Cups and — the pièce de résistance — frozen Hurricane cocktails will flow like the gorgeous Mississippi River. The event runs from 7 p.m. until sell out, both Friday and Saturday, so arriving early is recommended. The Squeezebox, 2806 N. St. Mary's St., Facebook.com/TheSqueezebox
