This place I have gone to many times and has a decent selection and pricing.
They also have a nice smoking den available which lately they have a guy named Jorge who is cuban rolling cigars right in the den at a table. Its his own blend which I have yet to smoke(a couple in humi settling) Its nice to be smoking a cigar and chatting with him as he rolls and explains any question you might have. His english is ok but he wants to talk to make him better.

Anyone in the local area that is interested in meeting there let me know would glad to meet a fella gar.

I picked up two of Jorge's roubustos last Sat.......should have picked up three. Ended up giving one to the owner of my normal B&M/lounge in K-zoo and the other one to my smokin' buddy. They said they were great! I didn't lose out though I ended up with a Padron 64 anny for $10! :smoke:

My wife's best friend lives around there...perhaps one of these days we can pop up there and she can visit her friend, I can visit this place and meet a couple of you guys there. Sounds great! How much do the roller's cigars sell for? I had one down here rolled locally a number of years ago and it was really good...I like trying locally rolled stuff.

I resemble that remark.
like leaving me all day in the smoking room of my local B&M is a punishment, well punish me, often, lol:humble:

I'll give you one of my sticks to try, still experimenting with the blend. Jorge wouldn't give up his blending recipe, so its kind of trial and error. I started out a little too mild for my tastes, so I upped the ligero leaf and its getting better.

Hey Rick, had a great time meeting you and the brothers of the leaf.
Looking forward to spending a Friday or two smoking some good sticks with you guys on Fridays in the future. Thanks again for the invite. You should post a picture of Ricks Stick on the site, its awesome having your own cigar. :smoke:

Hey Michigan brothers! I figured this thread already mentioned the appropriate B&M so I would just post here. I'll be in GR on Saturday to spend the day there for my birthday and I'm thinking about hanging out at Indian River for a smoke (my understanding is that they have a lounge there, yes?). If nothing else, I want to get there to pick up some of that Bullseye Flake that I was reading about here last week. I plan on being there around 4:30 or so if anyone happens to be around then.

It looks like it might be closer to 5:00 that I am there, if it matters. Any other takers?

I don't know if any of you still live in Grand Rapids but I've seen that this thread has not been commented upon for a couple of years. Do any of you still go to Indian River Tobacco Traders? If not would you care to comment?
