Week in Smoke – TGT Edition

Week in Smoke – TGT Edition

The 2014 DC Cigar Tweetup (put on by the B&B Cigar Club) was a few weeks ago. My attendance was cut short since my wife’s grandmother passed away. Even my select few hours spent at Signature Cigars during the Meet and Greet portion of the kickoff event was fantastic. It is always nice to see old friends like Barry Stein of Miami Cigar & Company and meet so many new friends that connect with me on Instagram. People …

Cigars and Pollen: Some Survival Tips

Cigars and Pollen: Some Survival Tips

Or, A Few Reasons to Smoke through Allergy Season.

Week in Smoke – TGT Edition

I’m 36 years old these days. One of the hardest aspects I deal with is people passing. Whether it is The Little Robusto, my Uncle Charlie, my brother or even now, my Lola (Filipino grandmother). While technically not my Lola (she was actually my wife’s Lola) but she treated me as if I was. She passed away last weekend at 87 years old. While we knew it was coming, it still felt sudden.

I don’t have too many …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 45

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 45

It’s once time again for another issue of Brian’s The Week In Smoke. In case this is your first Week in Smoke, be advised that it covers many (though not necessarily all) of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week (or the past month, or however long it has been since the last issue), along with a couple of quick thoughts that came to me at the time. These are not full reviews, but quick blurbs based on …
