Cigar Dinner with LFD
I have a treat for you this week as I give you a little look at a cigar dinner my local shop, Genuine Tobacco, put together with La Flor Dominicana, Union Station Grill and Mirus Financial Partners. If you do not know what a cigar dinner is, well, it is a dinner with cigars before, after and in-between courses (seriously, you probably figured that out yourself but for Brian Hewitt’s sake, I included the description). Of course your shop may do things differently but this is the way the night went at Union Station Grill.
First thing when we (my wife was with me) walked in we were handed a nice 5-count travel humidor sponsored by Mirus Financial Partners that had 4 LFD cigars in it. Next item we were handed were two tickets each for a free sample of scotch and wine (nice little added bonus). Last but not least, Kyle (LFD Rep) handed us a ticket for a drawing they were doing at the end of the evening for some door prizes. Like I said above, your shop may do things differently. After this we got to sit around and talk with the other guys and gals that bought tickets while smoking cigars (wife smoked cigarettes, blech) and waiting for the food to be served. I almost forgot, I grabbed the LFD Mystery Cigar from the humidor and lit it up at this point.
Started off with a nice salad and then they brought out what you see above, a nice chunk of prime rib just waiting to meet my fork. It was amazing. I asked people about the food and everybody seemed to love it. Smoking more of the LFD Mystery Cigar while waiting for dessert.
I have to thank my male model, Brad, for giving everyone a good look at how much people enjoyed the Creme Brulee. I will be upset if any fashion designers steal him away as he has been in every photo from event with Genuine Tobacco. Stay with us Brad!
I did not partake in the Creme Brulee as I never really cared for it but as you can see above, people were enjoying it. Still smoking the LFD Mystery Cigar but I have had to relight like 5 times so far due to eating, talking and taking pics so I am not getting a real good read on it. It is a bit on the strong side for me but I am soldiering on.
After all the dishes have been cleared away, Kyle and Stephen decided it was time to draw for some door prizes. They had hats, samplers and even an entry for a chance to win a trip to the LFD factory in the Dominican Republic. Of course, I won nothing (Really, don’t give me money for a casino or 30 seconds later it would be lost) but the winning stars are pictured above (except one who seems to have not gotten in the picture but I have him in the picture montage below). I kept up with the LFD Mystery Cigar after relighting at least another 3 times but it started getting pretty harsh in the last third so I had to let it go before nubbing it. Strong cigar but relighting so many times has an effect on a cigar and normally it isn’t for the better.
There you have it, a typical cigar dinner. I hope you can all go enjoy one at your local shop sometime or if you do not have a shop that does them, you can stare at the pictures below, click your heels three times and wish yourself to be there with all of us.
Till next time, keep smokin’
