Depending upon were you are going be sure to dress appropriate. If its a bar, jeans and sneakers are fine. If its an upper class place you may wanna wear shoes and a collared shirt just to be safe.
Bring some money for food and drinks. Be prepared to buy a few drinks as most people always switch back and forth buying rounds. Make sure you eat something as cigar smoking can do a number on your stomache.
Bring cigars, bring more cigars than you will smoke. There will be a lot of giving,swapping and smoking that day. No one expects any reciprication but it is nice to give it.
Most of all have fun smoke a lot of cigars and drive safely after the herf.
that last statment is the most important, getting home safe is rule #1 so get a DD
It's allot easier to ask for forgiveness, then it is to ask for permission

If you mess with; the Fla Herf gang, bring a big box so you have something to carry home the debris. Our rule is if you touch it its yours, like in "do you think this is a fake band" when you look you're stuck with the stick.
"we have ways of making you smoke" going to a FL HERF w/no cigars is like going to SKYPE w/out a working mic....IMO

I don't need Anger Management.....I just need people to stop pissing me off
As you participate in these, you will find that most of the people will become friends, so just treat them that way. I think a lot of herfers worry too much about what they bring, you'll get a feeling for it in time. Bring what you like to smoke, and what you want some others to try. If you are trying to impress people, you have the wrong idea.....and there are some here that you will never be able to impress with your selection, but can impress them with your attitude and friendship. ....
I don't go to these things for the cigars, I go for the company.
Our herfs always serve Vintage Port, so it depends on whose bringing a bottle from their cellar. I just fill up a travel humidor and do not worry about cigars. Smoke one of mine, take one from another cabinet... It's all good. Our herf's are more about the Port and cigars are just a facet of it.
Do you speak Campagnolo - F1- Alfa Romeo - IWC - Robiola?
Etiquette has a lot to do with location and also wiht the host or hosts as the case may be. I have been to a few herfs as well as being part of the P.P.P. we put on the best herf of them all, the SoCal Herf.
For starters, dress acordingly. Most herfs are informal and thus any casual wear will be fine. Except for Gerry in lingerie. I blame myself for that, becsause had I not asked he wouldnt have put it on. I knew my charm worked well with women, didnt know my power over effeminate males.
When a cigar is given to you, one is not and should not be expected in return. Try and bring enough to smoke for the evening as well as to hand out one or two. If you do not have one to give to anyone or do not have a "nice" cigar to give, just make a mental note to try and return the kindness on a later occasion.
Be a cordial guest. If food will be provided, ask if there is something you can bring. Do not make a mess, clean up after yourself, say please and thank you. Most herfs usually taek place amongst people whom dont really know each other. Conversation such stay clear of controversial topics, if one comes up, listen to the others who are speaking, if you disagree do it cordially and do not get into an argument! That would be bad time for those in attendence.
Always remember to show a little gratitude to the host(s)! This will assure a return invite!!!!!
