In the days before Paul Revere made his midnight ride, colonial North Americans favored one spirit above all others: rum. But while the delicious nectar?fermented and distilled from sugarcane and molasses?remains a top-shelf staple for daiquiris and mojitos, it seems to have gone down in status as America's signature liquor. Fortunately, the devoted enthusiasts of The Rum Lab have created the Midwest Rum Fest, a traveling expo that aims to give the dark, golden beverage back its crown without us falling back under the rule of King George III. As live tropical music floats through the air, guests become rum aficionados by tasting new cocktails, attending seminars from rum creators, and watching bartenders clash in a mixology demonstration.
Since 1998, ProCamps Worldwide has bridged the gap between pro athletes and their fans with a variety of instructional youth camps and fantasy camps for adults. More than 100 professional and Olympic gold-medal athletes have lent their wisdom during camps conducted across the country.

At fantasy camps, John Calipari and Bill Self—the two coaches who squared off in 2012's NCAA title game—give campers tours of their programs' hallowed halls.
