I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking isn’t this the day you usually write a cigar review? Right you are. But the thing is that I have this unique super power. It’s the uncanny ability to come down with the cold or the flu on any holiday. So like clockwork, only short hours before I planned to go out and drink some green tinted beer, I was nailed with a fast acting head cold. So no cigars for me for the past day and a half.
Actually this works out nicely. I was planning on putting up some pictures of the herf I went to in Charlotte this Saturday, but the sooner the better! By Saturday, this would be border-line old news, and I would probably would have forgotten the names of the other half of the attendees. (I’m so good with names, it’s stunning.)
But before we get into the pictures, due to a family emergency, Sam Leccia of NUb cigars had to cancel. We were all a little disappointed, and hope that all is well with the Leccia family. So that means that not only did we not get to smoke us some NUbs, we didn’t get to see Walt’s rolling table in action, as I teased earlier.
Fortunately, good to my word, I brought down the the boxes of Arganese cigars that Gene Arganese generously donated to our herf, so there were plenty of smokes to go around.

I’d like to thank Larry Good, owner of the Charlie’s Cigar Outlet for opening his shop up to us, and providing a great spread of tasty food and contributing some nice lighters to the raffle. And of course, thanks again to Gene Arganese for the abundance of cigars, and cool swag!
