I had the pleasure of attending a Tatuaje/My Father event last week. The event was promoting Pete's new L'Atelier line and Janny's new La Duena line. Admission included two cigars, food, and drink. Most importantly, I had the chance to chat with some great people. Pete and I discussed things including the new monster release, his new wine venture, and his opinions on hotel brands while living on the road. Janny was a touch shy, but was very polite and considerate, especially given the large number of eyes staring her down all night. Jose was a rather pleasant individual to talk to...we talked about things ranging from sales strategies, cigar reviews, and even things that move the needle in the industry.
Here I am with Pete and Janny, holding the box of Little Monsters I asked Pete to sign (Jose took the photo):
And here's the haul from the event. Bought everything except a few door prizes and freebies which included a Colibri lighter, a generic torch lighter, a Tatuaje Tattoo Lancero, a My Father limited 3-pack, a My Father t-shirt, and a random handful of My Father cigars:
All in all it was a pleasant event, and I was happy to actually have the opportunity to talk with these individuals, rather than just wait in line to have them sign a box.
