The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, Dana Point, California

Jean T. Barrett
From the Print Edition:
Ron Perelman, Spring 95

(continued from page 1)

The hotel hosts an annual World of Food and Wines festival on a weekend in mid-November. The resort is equally well-known as the site of an annual Gentlemen's Smoker, an event launched in 1989 by former general manager and cigar maven Henry Schielein. This $350-per-person dinner features an elaborate menu accompanied by well-chosen wines and, of course, an array of fine cigars and digestifs.

The seventh annual Gentlemen's Smoker will be held on March 23. But don't despair if you're booked; on April 19, the Ritz-Carlton hotel chain will hold its first international Smoker, in conjunction with Cigar Aficionado magazine, at all the Ritz-Carltons around the world, including Laguna. Mark your calendar.
