I Stopped by the Tobacco Patch on St. Patrick's Day to say "hello" to the gang. Perfect night to sit outside and enjoy a cigar. As an added bonus you could watch all the Irish on their way over to the Wilde Rover Irish Pub, it's just a few doors down. Anyone make it over there for St. Patrick's Day? That was definitely the place to be this year! What a zoo, and I mean that in a good way! What, maybe a thousand people showed up? Holy Crap!
Anyway, no cigar for me on Thursday - I have to adhere to my "no smoking Monday through Thursday" policy. Don't ask, it's just something I do...
So Friday, Cigar Night, of course it was pouring down rain, so we skipped Kirkland and drove up to the casino to gamble a bit, but more importantly, enjoy a fine cigar - INDOORS! Speaking of inside, I was over at Rain City Cigars in Georgetown yesterday and they told me that HB 1683 is still alive and well. Currently it's in the House Ways and Means Committee. Could be interesting if this Bill passes...
Anyway, always a good time up at the Lit. One thing that stands out about this place is that they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Technically, you could probably sit there all night and never buy a drink or a cigar and they would still treat you as if you were the most important person in the room. No kidding! You can see why it's so busy, especially on the weekends. Nice job Josh! (El Jefe)
Saturday night was actually quite nice outside, but we decided to stay home and have our cigars out on the deck instead of going down to the Patch. We have a pretty good setup here on our back deck - fireplace, patio heater, comfortable chairs, music, plus the bathroom is only steps away...
We started the evening with an Oliva, but finished with a Montecristo Classic. Not a bad cigar at all.
I reviewed this one last year as well: Montecristo
My views haven't changed really, still a very good smoke - kind of a nice change from an Oliva.
I wanted to let you know that their promotion is still going on, but not for much longer.
