Rocking With C.A.O.

The other day I grabbed the uptown subway to make my way to Davidoff of Geneva on Madison Avenue. Jon Huber and Frank Kapp from C.A.O. International Inc. had flown into town, part of their C.A.O. Rock N Rolled Tour. I wanted to say hello—Jon and I go way back—and I think the Lx2 is the best blend C.A.O. makes.

The idea for the Rock N Rolled Tour came from Huber’s neck and Frank’s head. Huber almost has enough tattoos to get him an honorary membership in Mötley Crüe, and his latest (at least, I think it’s his latest) is this vibrant bird on his upper back and neck with the words “Rock N Rolled” above it. Frank thought it would make a good idea for an in-store promotion for the new Lx2.

Here’s Frank and Jon talking about the tour at Davidoff.

So the tour gave people a chance to meet Jon and Frank, listen to a little rock music and sip a bit of George Dickel Tennessee whiskey while puffing on a new C.A.O.

What’s not to like?

I don't get this supposed fascination with someone else's tattoo. Seems awfully self-absorbed. Leaving aside my (negative) opinion about their line of cigars, these guys need to understand it doesn't make somebody cool by their always going around saying, "I'm cool." Rock and roll attitude my arse.
