The Dominican Republic—Day Two

I spent the day looking at tobacco fields and cigar factories here in Santiago. It was a bright, warm and sunny day, as this is the heart of tobacco growing season in the Dominican Republic. Before I left on this trip, I asked you for questions that you would like answered in my blogs, which will appear all week here on www. January 15, 2008

Smoking Big in Las Vegas

I landed yesterday in Las Vegas for our Big Smoke, and I wasted no time getting started Vegas style. After a long flight, I was hungry and ready for a cigar, so I dumped my bags at the Venetian Hotel and went straight to the Forums Shops at Caesars’ Palace. November 9, 2007

Big Smoke Season

It’s Big Smoke day in New York. After 14 years, I know that means the holiday season is on us too. It’s always been the perfect kick-off to that time of year. For starters, we get a parade of our favorite cigar manufacturers coming through the city. November 20, 2007

Trade Show Blog—First Smokes

First things first—I keep calling this IPCPR trade show by its old name, RTDA, so from now on I’m just going to say “trade show.” Problem solved. It’s Monday morning here in Las Vegas, and in one hour the trade show begins. July 14, 2008

In the Fields of La Canela

Tuesday in the Dominican Republic. The ProCigar Festival doesn’t officially begin here in Santiago until Wednesday, so I planned to spend this day meeting people who aren’t part of the organization. February 17, 2010

Back From the Big Smoke

Saturday night, Mashantucket, Connecticut, about 8 pm. I’m standing next to the Quesada Cigars booth at the Big Smoke at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods, puffing on a Coronado by La Flor Double Corona and talking to Hostos Fernandez Quesada. May 25, 2010
