IPCPR 2018 – Day One Thoughts

The first day is in the books and we covered quite a few companies including:

  • United Cigar
  • AVO/Camacho
  • Room 101

After that Tommy Bahama invited us to the 55th floor of their suite at the Palms for an amazing view accompanied by cigars and libations. Finally we headed back downtown for the Drew Estate Media party where, you guessed it, …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 115

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 115
