Last week, the night before I left for an overseas business trip, I sat down with Pete Johnson at a Tatuaje Cigars event hosted by Holt’s Cigar Company in Northeast Philadelphia. We talked about a lot of things going on in the Tatuaje universe, including the upcoming Cojonu 2012s, future installments of the Monster series, Pete’s plans for the Saints & Sinners club, and the possibility of expanding the Tatuaje brand to include adult beverages. I had a great time hanging out with Pete, @TedBonVivant, and the entire crew at Holt’s. I especially want to thank Anthony Mazzola, General Manager at Holt’s, for hosting a terrific event and allowing me to steal Pete away for a few minutes to record this interview.
As mentioned earlier, I had hoped to be able to upload this video for my weekly post on Tuesday, but abysmal upload speeds at the hotel in Scotland foiled those plans. The trip was enjoyable, but it’s good to be home & getting back into the swing of things.
