    What's the first thing that comes to mind when I think about interior design? Bacardi.

    Bacardi has been doing a lot of promotions in the design world - at special events, etc. Particularly with Bombay Sapphire. They've sponsored a glassware design competition with folks like Karim Rashid and Yves Behar participating.

    After last night's drunken debacle on Top Chef I certainly hope that Bravo (and Bacardi) will provide something equally as entertaining on Top Design.
