The weekend of March 22 saw a few Cigar Studio customers travel to Hollywood, FLA for the Big Smoke. Put on by Cigar Aficionado, and hosted at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, 35 cigar vendors along with a variety of Food and Beverage sponsors put on a terrific evening of premium cigars, music, and hospitality. Huge props to the new venue, more room and a better venue. We all had a great time, and I got to hang out with cigar legends, Rocky Patel, Ernesto Perez Carillo, Jorge Padron, Hamlet Paredes, Alan Rubin and his two sons Alec and Bradley, Dean Parsons and others. Naturally our first stop was at Perdomo Cigars where we hung out with Nick and our pal and his #1, Nelson Cuba.
We have it booked for 2020.
