I lit up on a patio at a bar this past weekend. Perfect weather, patio was relatively empty, except for a couple of other tables, etc. Anyway, I'm about 5 minutes in and this older woman from a table full of older folks walks over and I just KNOW that she is going to ask me to move or something to that effect. She gets to the table smiles and then says, "That smells quite delicious. May I ask if you bought that from anywhere nearby?" Unfortunately, I didn't, but I did have an extra in my car. I put my cigar down on the ashtray, walked out to my car, got the extra, returned, and then spent the next 15 minutes teaching this older woman and her husband and their friends how to properly light a stick, how to smoke it, what to look for when you buy, my favorite brands, etc. In this instance I was smoking a La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Belicoso. It was actually a pretty cool moment and it combined my 2 favorite aspects of cigar smoking: community and relaxation. And better yet, the woman's husband typed the majority of the brands I gave them into his phone. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, so I just pick and choose in public and hope for a cool crowd like I had this weekend.
