Team Innuendo will have a field day with Home Plate BBQ stocking a rum made under the name of porn star Ron Jeremy. Then again, why bother when the label declares this is “the adult rum” with a “long smooth taste” and, after noting the Spanish word for rum is ron, states, “Rons come a plenty but only one is larger than life.” Always nice when someone else carries the load.
Anyway, I went to Home Plate with Frank Siegel, who opened Frank’s Place — then near Workers Stadium — way back in 1990. That arguably makes him the Ron Jeremy of the Beijing bar scene. In terms of being a legend, I mean. I have no idea if he can act.
Home Plate’s Seth Grossman seemed quite happy to show us his new product. I guess that’s no surprise, given he’s also a bit of a “Seth” machine.
(Actually, I just made that price up. Grossman only has one bottle and it is part of his private collection. Ask at the bar if you’re interested in trying it.)
