After a quick stop to enjoy some refreshing chicken in the Room 101 booth, we talked to Matt Booth about arcade games for enjoyment purposes, cigar time travel, and products for people to observe, consume, and purchase (in any order). Those products included The T., Farce, the Connecticut extension of Farce, the full-bodied Hit and […]
The recent announcement of Room 101’s entrance into the spirits world with surprising choice of gin reminded me that I’m overdue to reread George Orwell’s 1984. But more relevant to the task at hand, it also reminded me I had picked up some Room 101 Hit & Run sticks for a review, and it was […]

But somehow I always do. It’s either a gift or […]
An interview with Matt Booth at the IPCPR 2015 tradeshow didn’t work out, but Mr. Booth is resourceful. He contacted me this week asking if we could arrange to talk on a medium like Skype, and I was happy to oblige. Of course Skype fought with us the whole way, but we soldiered on, as […]
It’s been a rough couple of weeks for me when it comes to cigars, some sort of unpleasant head cold had me out of commission for the better part of a week, and it took a few more days for my sense of smell and taste to return to normal. But the good news is […]
