Bits & Pieces

While I was away last week the news emails piled up. As I was going through them I came across a few nuggets I thought might be of interest to you.

The Cigar Jack Show
If you like cigars and a talk radio format, then you'll enjoy "The Cigar Jack Show, "which was recently launched at CigarJack.net. Hosted by Jesse Nachtigal, the podcast is very professionally done and informative. Check it out and listen to the first episode.

New Lancero cigar from La Aurora
Cigar Aficionado's David Savona recently reported on the new Aurora Preferido Lancero. Limited to a run of only 40,000 cigars, the Lanceros are rolled to a 6 7/8 x 40 and made with the same blend used in the Aurora Preferido Cameroon cigars. To read the full-story click here.

Morton's Steakhouse Dinner
This is more of a local story, especially if you live in the Reston, Virginia area, but if you like cigar dinners, you may be interested in the "Cut and Taste" event that will take place on Monday, July 21 at Morton’s The Steakhouse at the Reston Town Center. It all starts at 6:00 P.M. The cost for the five course dinner, which includes Morton’s signature cuisine paired with fine wines and premium Paul Garmirian Cigars, is $220/person. For more information visit the Morton's Reston website and click on the "Special Events" tab.

Rocky Patel Cigars Dinner
And speaking of cigar dinners, if you live in the Lehigh Valley region of Eastern PA and Western NJ, how about this Rocky Patel Dinner coming up on Friday, September 12, 2008. Starting at 7:00pm, Famous Smoke Shop will welcome the hardest working man in the cigar business, Rocky Patel, for an evening of fine dining and even finer cigars. The event is going to be held at Silver Creek Country Club in Hellertown, PA, and the $125/person price includes some of Rocky's best cigars, an awesome six course meal, four glasses of wine, and a great time with Rocky.
