About 60 Lane United FC fans were on hand last Tuesday night to meet current Portland Timbers and former Manchester United star Mikael Silvestre and enjoy complimentary tastings of his award-winning St. Barth’s Rum. The event was held at the Agate Alley Laboratory in South Eugene and was open to all comers. In addition to the refreshments and camaraderie, guests also got to enjoy a raffle of four posters and two vintage Manchester United jerseys, all autographed by Mikael himself. The evening was a blast and we were thrilled to see so many members of the Eugene community out to support the Reds and enjoy the company of such a world-class athlete.
Thanks are in order for Mikael for making the drive down from Portland to support LUFC, the Lab for allowing us to use their excellent facility, and South Liquor for organizing the tasting itself.
