Anyway, after all that good news I thought I'd enjoy a fine cigar out on the deck, I needed to clean the barbecue anyway.
So here's what I found in my humidor:
Rocky Patel Burn, Naples, Fl.
6 1/2 x 52 Toro
Would I buy it again? If I were choosing only from the Rocky Patel brand of cigars - YES! This is one of their best in my opinion!
I've got a few other RP cigars in my humidor that I plan to review in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned...
My lovely bride and I are venturing over to houtie-toutie Bellevue more and more these days. We tried out a couple of restaurants that we haven't been to before:
El Gaucho Restaurant - beautiful restaurant, good service. Food? Meh, it was OK. I wasn't real impressed. Pretty $$$ too. Seriously doubt I go back, unless of course someone else is buying.
Earl's Kitchen & Bar at Lincoln Square - Excellent! Good food, great service, reasonably priced, comfortable. We tried to get into Palomino just a few doors down, but the waiting list was too long. Pleasantly surprised that we found a table at this place - very nice! Definitely going back again!
I'll be heading up to the Lit Cigar Lounge this weekend, haven't been there since last year - sounds like a long time ago, doesn't it? Might try to make it to the Punch/Barcardi event on Friday night. You never know, maybe I'll see you up there?
