    Great Time meeting Rocky Patel last night!

    Last night I headed to The Briar Shoppe here in Houston for the Rocky Patel event and party!

    So around 4:00pm my buddy Abel "Incognito" and I head up to Briar Shoppe for the event. It is really great that he is able to come because he takes photography seriously. From sports to portraits he does a great job. We get there and Bo "Sysrock" is there already into his first Rocky Patel cigar. Great deals on Rocky's cigars including buy three and get one free. If you bought a box you got 5 free and a free torch lighter or ashtray.

    The owner of The Briar Shoppe Pat O'Connor introduces me to Rocky Patel and I have to say this man is as cool and collect as they come. Rocky is very open about his passion for cigars. He answers the questions of everyone that comes up to him. I had a chanve to thank Rocky for his participation on our website and he gave me a pointer on building the site. He simply stated "It takes time." I thought alot about this because it reminds me that sometimes I need to slow down. You can definitely tell that Rocky takes this in everthing he does. Once a lawyer and now a leader in full bodied smokes Rocky really is a great role model for new people in the industry. His work ethic is above par as he is often referred to as one of the hardest working men in the cigar industry.




    My choice for the night was the Rocky Patel Sungrown which I believe is one of the best values in cigars right now. So how far did I take it? Lets just say that was a SunGrown Nub for sure. I ended up buying more sungrown and some of the Java cigars for my wife to try.

    After the event we went to a local bar for some great music and food provided by Pat. Thanks for having us at the event Pat and thank you Rocky for showing is what a true Brother of the Leaf is.

    Check out the great pics Abel took of the event!

    The most overlooked advantage to owning a computer is that if they foul up there's no law against wacking them around a little.

    Yes I love the effect too! Abel does some really great things with the camera! He even cut off about 20 lbs on me in photoshop!
