It’s Carnival Monday in Trinidad—for those of you lucky enough to be playing mas in Port of Spain, that likely means the start of two days of non-stop wining. Trini Carnival basically is to wining what the Olympics are to sports: it’s where the best of the best come to prove themselves, in a show of ultimate endurance.

So we tapped our Trini/soca correspondents Tishanna Williams and DJ Jam Central to lay down d rules of d road and write us a manual of wine commandments. Read carefully… and safe winin’.
