Coming to America.

Travelling to the US very soon from Australia. Can somebody please advise where would be the best value place to pick up a nice box of Toranos from one of the following locations: LAX Airport, Atlanta or Las Vegas? Thanks,

I live in the Atlanta area and there are tons of places to get your cigars...depends on where you are staying. Toranos are fairly easy to get but don't buy them at LAX..waste of money. If anything if you are staying at a predetermined place for a few days.....buy them on the Internet and have them delivered to your hotel/destination under your name and the address. BTW...welcome to Puff.

Thanks for the welcome, and the advice. I was hoping to do exactly that, purchase online and have it delivered to my hotel. Unfortunately the couple of sites I looked at required using an online age verification valid for US residents only. Cigary; could you please recommend a good store around Buckhead area for me to visit? Thanks Mate.

And to follow up:

I am thinking of coming to the USA in september for a week or 3 for some r&r BUT...i don't know anything regarding smoking laws in the USA as in:

-Am i to smoke a cigar on the street while walking around/looking at windows etc.
-Am i allowed to smoke a cigar on a terrace in the city?
-Am i allowed to smoke in a park or anywhere in the open except inside buildings and busses of course.

Please define as in city's or states who have a total ban for cigar smoking outside your own home cause wouldn't like to lit up a cigar after a fine meal outside on a terrace and hear: "Sir that is not allowed."

Oh yeah.. i like sitting outside instead of inside.

Trust me...there will be more than enough signage where you won't have to guess where you can or can't smoke. Hotels....NO....Restaurants....NO.....outside is fine as long as you don't see a sign prohibiting it. If you can't read the sign then some long-suffering citizen will be sure to yell and scream profanities in your direction and wave their hands back and forth as if to say.....they are choking to death. I usually respond with two words....huh...whauah?

Ah...thanks for that last example cause overhere in the Netherlands we tend to have these (as i call them) victimized millennials who tend to play the 'victim' card or lecture you about health issues or even the law.

And regarding the law: i tend to know that pretty well to be impressed by their mumbo jumbo.

I always tend to look them straight in the face to let them know: "Today is not a good day to piss me off lady/guy." The ones who tend to get into a verbal exchange with me mostly get bombarded with a sharp reply regarding their way of trying to censor me in my right to smoke a cigar on a terrace. Luckily those are only a few once a while who try.

For the record: Most terraces i visit in my home country know me already as a frequent guest of the good life wich means for them: When i am in, there is money to be made, more then the average millennial customer with their cheap wine or mint tea they tend to do an hour with , while being very busy with their random bs talk and social media post.

But thanks for the answer, gives me an idea how to do what and what to expect.
