California Herf!!!

j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
Ok guys, I know there are more than a few of us here in the Golden State, so it's high time we start thinking about getting a good herf going. Right now, we're looking at the most basic formative stages of this, the first step is figuring out where you all are so we can pick the place that best satisfies the problem of distance.

For starters, post up what city you are in if you live in CA. This is going to be a serious consideration on my part, and the outcome is only as good as the planning that goes into it. So help me out here and get to posting. (Note: the county in which you reside would also be helpful in case I'm not familiar with the city)

If all goes well, maybe we could be looking at a late fall get-together.

    I live in Temecula in Riverside County, about 20 mins from you Joe. Really excited to get this thing going!

    Hopefully it gets a good turnout. I'd love nothing more than to get a good group of us together for a day.

    Hmm. The logistics are tough on this one for the NorCal guys...I'm not quite sure how we could set this up in such a way that it wouldn't require a good deal of travel for at least some. Any ideas?

    Yeah, California isn't the biggest state but it's a looonng one......

    What about two herfs. A So Cal and a Nor Cal????

    Right...only the third biggest. :)

    That was my thought too Leonard, it's just too damn hard to meet in the middle somewhere.

    Norcal guys, someone take up the reigns for the upper half of the state and try to get a herf going up there.

    Right now, I'm going to tentatively propose Redlands as the herfing point as it is the place that is respectively closest for all who've posted thus far. There is a B&M/smoking lounge there. I'll be stopping in sometime this week to check the place out, and if it is up to snuff we might think about getting together there.

    If anybody else has ideas, post 'em up, I'd love to hear them. And Socal guys that haven't posted, keep coming, I know there have to be a couple more.

    Wait a second.... There's more than 2 people who smoke cigars in this state? I don't believe it!

    Hey Joe, what place were you thinking about in Redlands?
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    It's called the Humidor, or the Redland Humidor, not sure which. Here's a link to their website Link!

    I'm planning a stop on my way home from work in the next couple of days to check it out. Temecula is also a possibility, though I think this one is a bit more central to those who have responded so far.

    Sure about that? I stopped at the cigar lounge I'm looking at and bought two cigars for about $18 and change. CA taxes suck and our prices suck because of them.

    So guys, if we tried to plan this for some time in August, who would be in?
  • Garen BGaren B Posts: 977
    Depending on when in August, I'm in. The later the better for me.
  • jlmartajlmarta 50 miles from ParadisePosts: 7,106 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Gotta know when and where before I can commit.....but I'd love to be there.

    Are you willing to travel that far though? Up to you of course, I'd be glad to have you, but you're looking at some travel time to get where I have in mind. The where is looking like a place called The Humidor in Redlands, CA you can find a website in this thread. The when is looking like probably late August possible September depending on who can make it and when.

    Is anyone taking charge for the nor cal herf? If so, I'm in Sacramento and would really enjoy meeting some of you guys.
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    Brian, you should definitely rally the troops for a Norcal herf. We can make a sport of it, see who gets the best turnout and compare pics after all is said and done.
  • The weekend of Aug 21 I couldn't make it and Aug 15th I may have a show to play, but thats after 8pm so if it was early I would be down.

    I'm in Fallbrook. On the border of North San Diego and Riverside County. I vote for August 21, I'd love to have a herf/b-day party.
  • Garen BGaren B Posts: 977
    No way Kame, your right up the road from me. I have a few friends down Fallbrook way, might bring one along for the herf.
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    Hmm, maybe Temecula is the way to go here then, it seems Redlands is only convenient for one person and Temecula is more central to the rest. What say you guys?
