whats a decent budget cigar? ive only had swisher sweets i liked them fine. but i like to try new things. ....

If you have a local tobacconist shop drop in and talk with the proprietor. I travel a little here and there and have found almost everywhere they are usually very personable, quite decent, and should be able to assist with recommendations. A good tobacconist will be happy to introduce a new customer to the details. You should be able to find something to please your palette and well within your budget.

The larger and more well stocked humidors the better to choose from. Initially, I would recommend against the little humidors at restaurants or retail stores because there will probably be less varied selections and cost. I would avoid one of those mall style cigarette stores altogether unless they have a large walk in humidor. Best to visit a full service and committed cigar and pipe tobacconist if one is open in your area.

Best of luck to you.

Back on topic! My budget homage to Stu. It's a balmy almost 90F today. Premixed in the fridge/Tanqueray/Dolin vermouth. The drink looks small, but the glass is 8oz.

To track-back along with my brother Louie, Let's get back-On-Track: :candle:

Sometimes the only meal of the day must be combined with a relaxing beverage... :cool:

In this time of "Lock-Down-Loonies," my monkey-man rental-servant "Reddy-Neddy" has risen to the challenge to serve up some of the very best. :cool: ;) :cool:

In this case, a spread of Ahi Poke, Ahi Poppers, spicy crisps, and a superb Martini made with a lime rim-rubbed, ice frosted crystal glass, with just a minuscule dash of dry vermouth, dollop of olive juice, and of course... copious portion of Grey Goose vodka.

ALL "rental" ingredients, get it? Cause you consume the listed gear then pass it along cause ya cant keep it... :crackup:

Neglected to give credit to the PURCHASED :crackup: Ti Connector Zirconium chop sticks / Starlinegear leather case that made ingestion of the plate contents just a bit more effective. :naughty:

And yes, still awaiting an appropriate explanation via PM... :cool: ;) :cool:

There are a few other oh-so-slightly camouflaged themes or creative "Easter Eggs" as it were in the last set of images. So whomever describes or finds the most interesting theme just may, as my great Uncle Schlemiel liked to say...

Every great martini should include additional great decompression accouterments, a great read, and an occasional blossom...

In one of the last few instances, anyone interested in a prize "cookie" missed out on the abstract aspects of...

...in that it has the "tilt" or look of a Kabuto. So yeah, if you had mentioned same, you just may have earned a prize or as Uncle Schlemiel says, cookie...
