Went to a "My Fathers" event
$15
They handed me a Don Pepin Garcia and then told me how good the My Fathers cigar was. $15 more with a discount from the B&M!
man I can see why these shops struggle.

    There's an Ashton/Patron Event this coming Friday at my B&M.A $10 ticket gets you a cigar and you get to sample the Patron line.Prepaid ticket gets you an extra stick.Now that's an event.

    That's lame!!! Seriously, I love DPG but if I went to that and that was my experience I'd have a hard time not being pretty grizzled toward his stuff for a while.

    I'm more than willing to pay the $15 for the pre-posted stick and get a chip and drink with it. That's why I go. To try new stuff. But this was odd. It was a My Fathers' event, but they gave you a DPG and then tried to sell you on the son's cigar's being new and different. Another thing. I spoke to the rep as he unloaded his wares from the trunk of his car!. It was 75° in N.O. today.

    That blows - I went to my first event last month. $25 got you 3 sticks(la aurora 107 and 2 nestor miranda's), anything off the menu, and 3 beers. Then I went to one last night and the guy sat inside while everyone else smoked outside.

    Man, you're lucky! Where I'm at I've only seen a couple events and they are every other month or so. The next one isn't until May 13th, a Perdomo event and it's hosted by the same shop everytime. It'll be my first and I can't wait to attend to see what it's all about, but I wish there were more for me to attend. Maybe in Tampa there's more, IDK?

    Whiskey in the Park in San Jose with cigars. They're partnering with West Coast Cigar as far as I can tell and you can upgrade your whiskey ticket for an additional $50 to include two cigars. It's at the same time as the MKE herf on June 26th so I won't be going, but I thought I'd post it anyway.

    $50 for two cigars? Better be damn good cigars.

  • YaksterYakster herf wardenPosts: 19,829 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Two cigars and a Masterclass, whatever that is. It's primarily a Whiskey tasting event.
