What are some of the worst excuses / lies you've seen plantation venues use to try to trick you into not thinking they're a plantation?

I can't be the only southern bride who thinks she may have found a great venue and then scrolls down to read descriptive words like "colonial", "historic", etc only to have it hit me that this is probably an old plantation and the venue owners don't want to admit it in able to still get people to get married there. So I'd like to hear if anyone else has had any experiences with venues like this and the type of wording they've done to hide it.

For me the worst I've ever seen is a venue that advertised part of the 'decor' as "the nearby beautiful ruins of their old servant house" and... Yeeeeah.

A US Navy cruiser anchored in Mississippi for a week's shore leave. The first evening, the ship's Captain received the following note from the wife of a very wealthy and influential plantation owner:

"Dear Captain, Thursday will be my daughter's Debutante Ball. I would like you to send four well-mannered, handsome, unmarried officers in their formal dress uniforms to attend the dance. They should arrive promptly at 8:00 PM prepared for an evening of polite Southern conversation. They should be excellent dancers, as they will be the escorts of lovely refined young ladies. One last point: No Jews please."

Sending a written message by his own yeoman, the captain replied: "Madam, thank you for your invitation. In order to present the widest possible knowledge base for polite conversation, I am sending four of my best and most prized officers. One is a lieutenant commander, and a graduate of Annapolis with an additional Masters degree from MIT in fluid technologies and ship design. The second is a lieutenant, one of our helicopter pilots, and a graduate of Northwestern University in Chicago, with a BS in Aeronautical Engineering. His Masters Degree and PhD. in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering are from Texas Tech University and he is also an astronaut candidate. The third officer is also a lieutenant, with degrees in both computer systems and information technology from SMU and he is awaiting notification on his Doctoral Dissertation from Cal Tech. Finally, the fourth officer, also a lieutenant commander, is our ship's doctor, with an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and his medical degree is from the University of North Carolina . We are very proud of him, as he is also a senior fellow in Trauma Surgery at Bethesda."

Upon receiving this letter, Melinda's mother was quite excited and looked forward to Thursday with pleasure. Her daughter would be escorted by four handsome naval officers without peer (and the other women in her social circle would be insanely jealous). At precisely 8:00 PM on Thursday, Melinda's mother heard a polite rap at the door which she opened to find, in full dress uniform, four very handsome, smiling black officers.

Her mouth fell open, but pulling herself together, she stammered, "There must be some mistake."

"No, Ma'am," said the first officer. "Captain Goldberg never makes mistakes."

The Problem with Plantation Rum

Many wonder, Why the hate against one of the major rum bottlers in the world? What’s wrong with Plantation rums? I have not seen all these issues aggregated in one place, so I’ll do that here.

These are the three complaints against Plantation rum.

1. Additives of Questionable Legality

EDIT: Most of my linked sources here had inaccurate information. Sugar dosing Barbados rum is not illegal, but the proposed GI regulations in Point 2 would have made it illegal. As of 2020, Plantation is transparent about dosing levels.

The first thing to know is that Plantation sources, blends, and bottles rum. They do not distill their own rum. In 2017, Plantation’s parent company, Maison Ferrand, bought the West Indies Rum Distillery and a one-third stake in National Rum of Jamaica, a government organization that owns some local distilleries. This makes their sourcing easier, but it’s still inaccurate to call Plantation a distillery.

We all know the world of rum is the wild west. Unlike, say, American bourbon whiskey, there is no single governing body that regulates what can and cannot be called rum. Bourbon must have a 51% corn mashbill and be aged in first-use charred white oak barrels. Rum, on the other hand, is made in dozens of countries, many of which have their own laws on distillation, bottling, andβ€”most important for our discussion hereβ€”additives.

Additives are just what they sound like: stuff added to the rum that was not present naturally in the sugarcane or created in the fermentation. The most common are vanillins, glycerins, colorings, and sugar. Many rum makers use additives, and many do not admit to using them. Relatively few distilleries, like Foursquare, absolutely eschew additives.

Plantation rums use techniques borrowed from master blender Alexandre Gabriel’s native French cognac industry. One of those techniques is secondary maturationβ€”aging the rums in used cognac barrels in France. Another is evening out the alcohol burn by adding sugar.

There are two problems with this.

First, though I see many rum journalists say that Plantation is β€œtransparent” about sweetening their rums, I disagree. They don’t freely admit to sugar dosing. Do you see β€œsugar added” anywhere on a Plantation bottle that isn’t the Xaymaca release? EDIT: As of 2020, they have listed dosing on their website.

The second issueβ€”and the bigger issueβ€”is that their additives are legally questionable.

~~Here’s what I mean. Take Barbados rum. Just like

Strap in shamers. I just realized that the Sunday night destination wedding that we were invited to during a pandemic is on a plantation.

So, my partner’s cousin is getting married. Bride and groom are from Great Lakes region of the US and now live in the Southwest. The couple decided to continue with their plan to get married during a pandemic. Their wedding is set for a Sunday night in a Southern city, which is kind of absurd when no one is local to the venue.

We were considering going as we’ll have both doses of the COVID vaccine.

And then we realized that it’s being held on a historical plantation.

What the ever loving hell...

The Dren Plantation Challenge

This is a challenge a friend and I came up with. I haven't completed it yet, but it's pretty fun so far, so I figured I'd share it.

The goal is to play as a Dren Plantation slave, free all of the slaves, and kill everyone else in Dren Plantation. The rules are:

-Start as a new character. You can be any race/class/sign you want, but Khajiit or Argonian are recommended.

-As soon as you leave the census office, immediately make your way to Dren Plantation. Try not to level any skills along the way.

-Drop all of your possessions at the gate.

-Using only equipment that you find within the plantation, free all of the slaves and kill everyone else.

-You can use spells and powers gained from your race and birth sign, but you cannot learn other spells before coming to the plantation.

A few tips:

>!Heavy Armor and Long Blade are strong choices for combat skills given the equipment available. There is a full alchemy set on the plantation, although it's closely guarded. The Lover birth sign is particularly strong, as Lover's Kiss will allow you to kill most solo enemies.!<

EDIT

Two minor notes:

-Hides-His-Foot will not agree to go free if you're not on the quest to free him. For this challenge, you get credit just for offering to free him while holding the key.

-There is a guy on top of the guardtower roof who is inaccessible without levitation or high acrobatics. I found that if I had a way to aggro him, I could wedge myself up on top of a pole on the nearby balcony and hit him through the wall. Your mileage may vary. If you don't happen to find randomized loot that lets you get at him, you can fetch a levitation potion from off-plantation.

My only regret is not leaving the plantation 5 years ago

I spent so many years at a job i hated because it paid great, to buy shit i didn’t need. To impress people i probably didn’t even like.

Funny thing is, the people we think we are impressing probably not only don’t care, but resent us for having success.

So a few years ago i adopted minimalism and focused on paying off a small but nice place to live. I was still scared to quit my job tho. The fear of the unknown. But i did anyway this year.

Not only did my life not come crashing down, but things worked out better then i could ever imagine! Being stuck in wage slavery is for men stuck paying child support.

The mgtow man can stash some cash and take a leap of faith. This community over the years has improved my life more then i could ever imagine
