The Saturday portion of the event started around 1 PM.  As you entered the gate you were given a goody bag, another glass, and a lanyard, which was punched at each cigar booth so they could keep track of who already gave you cigars.  Cigars were handed out by:

Saturday started off a little more chaotic with everybody lining up at the different cigar booths to receive their free stick, but after an hour or so, you made it through all of the lines, and it went back to being a relaxing atmosphere.

There were seminars in different tents throughout the afternoon to include one by Cigar Man Andy.  I went to a cigar and beer-pairing seminar taught by Dr. Bill Sysek from Stone Brewing.  It was about a half hour long, and I found it very interesting.  Doc from Stogie Fresh Radio also sat in on the seminar.  We talked about cigars and beer as well as food and beer pairings.  Dr. Bill summed it up by giving everybody his card, and invited everyone to call him if they were ever trying to pair beer for a get together or party.

Even though I don’t really know anything about wine, I went and watched the Roxo Port Cellars grape-crushing seminar.  They were making the Crush and Roll 2014 Port at the 2012 event.  If you wanted to crush grapes, they let you.  All you had to do was wash your feet off with some iodine and water, and then get to crushing!  I took a few pics of people crushing grapes.

After the seminars I went and hung out under one of the tents, and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon drinking beer from Stone Brewing Company, Fig Mountain Brewery, Central Coast Brewing Company, and Sierra Nevada.  I was later joined by Mike Rosales again, and got two more Aquitaines!!!

All in all I really enjoyed attending this event.  I found it fun, informative, and relaxing with a laid back atmosphere.  As I said before, I’m not a wine fan, so I did not visit all of the wine booths, and I still had plenty to do.

I would recommend this event to any one who enjoys cigars, but if you enjoy both cigars and wine, this is the event for you.
