    Post BMTA keepin up with Tobacconist!

    This will be our official thread.



    Club Calypso in Richardson, TX possed the question what's more important to a cigar smoker. Expanding the humidor to face more cigars or maintaining the lounging space in the store for relaxation.

    The store is owned by Matt Bedosky. You can visit him on-line at
    Little Havana Cigars

    Give us some feedback or drop Matt a note with your opinion.

    Personally if you already have a solid selection I would say maintain the louge.

    Now I am speaking as a Canadian in the middle of nowhere without a smoking lounge for 300 miles. As such I feel that if a cigar store in my area had a lounge I probably woul buy a cigar a day + from them simply to smoke in the lounge add a locker system and I would be in heaven.

    Also when I travel I look for cigar stores that have lounges so I can enjoy a cigar while I am on the road and meet other cigar smokers - or met up with peeps from the forums.

    But of course a lounge with a terrible selection is good for no one.

    Also please ask Matt if he would consider expanding into Saskatchewan we could use a good B&M w/ lounge - Saskatchewan is just straight up from Texas.

    From a strictly business sense, expand the humidor. There is no margin in the lounge!

    Question Re: BMTA keepin up with Tobacconist!

    Here's a question for ya is it more fun to bring your own beverages & share at cigar & pipe events. Or is it better for the tobacco shop to provide beverages during special events.

    We'll pass it on!

    Lisa Schaub owns Seguin Cigar in Seguin, TX she told me if ever you're in Rome or Seguin, TX. Or just heading down the highway. Stop by for a visit they have a hugh back patio area with grills and seating. Wouldn't take long to fire up the grill and smoke a few cigars together.

    Enjoy the weekend!

    Dave & John own Mi Casa Cigar at the edge of Frisco & Little Elm, TX can get a little confusing. Get your directions before going. These guys run a up and coming hangout for cigar smokers. Not to mention if you like playing Texas Hold 'em no one comes close to the following they have for games. They even had all the tables professionally made. The store sports a wild game theme as Dave is a avid hunter & smoker. If you're in the area you so should check them out. Great lounge too! Open to all.

    Ken Wiles a 40 yr. industry verteran and a great story in itself owns Ole Grapevine Cigar & Ole Arlington Cigar. Both stores feature world class cigar lounges. Although private they are very welcoming to visitors who are in from out of town. Not to mention if you're in Grapevine, TX. Kenny also owns a Cigar Bar right next to his store called Tap Inn run by Kenny's wife Anita. Golf themed with live music most nights of the week. The selection in these stores is what set's them apart. Both stores feature three humidors full of cigars. Hard not to find something you like to smoke.

    Addison Cigar in Addison, Tx is owned by Mark Bartlett a cigar industry verteran of 20 years. A few years ago Mark moved Addison Cigar into the historial post office in Addison, TX getting mail from here would've been sweet. The store features a world class private lounge, lockers, espresso bar, leather seating, Vegas style poker tables, & Leather theater seating with cup holder. Naptime. Patio in front and back. Mark also has a nice lounging area in front of the store with Bar top seating. The store is spotless. It's obvious Mark takes a great amount of pride in being a Tobacconist. You should stop by and meet Mark and his sidekick Robert Wilson a encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to smoking. Guess so he's been at it longer than Mark.

    Just visited Matt, Randy and Toby(?) tonight and bought a bunch of cigars, including the Fonseca Cubano Limitado that I am now enjoying the hella out of.

    There's enough selection for me already, but if I had to choose, I'd say more cigars.

    I see the boss man pointed out one of his favorites. Matt's a good guy with a ever expanding portfolio. One day he may also add a patio on the side of the store. Will be havin some great barbeques if he does that.

    Enjoy the week and Keep it Smokin!

    Michael purchased Town & Country Cigars of Euless, TX several years ago. Not to be confused with the Town & Country in N. Richland Hills. A unigue store with a lounge in the sense it's one of the few stores in Texas and especially DFW allowed to serve drinks and mixed beverages. The store has weekly live music events and is staffed by a bunch of great guys including Jason Fields. If you need a place to relax in the Mid-Cites this is a good place to go and enjoy a smoke.
