|Broadway Cigars in Providence, RI.|
And also one of the world's coolest dudes. Hi Brian!
|The little bastard and Rocky|
Of course, he also hung with Valentino for a bit, and they laughed it up like BFFs. (Not even kidding. I pity the guy who came up to Rocky and said, "Now who are you?")
|Like Valentino's shirt? You can get one just like it here!|
Patel, er, Rocky, a former Los Angeles entertainment and liability lawyer, developed a fascination with cigars during the mid-1990s boom. After helping found the Grand Havana Club in LA, he invested in cigar manufacturing and the product--and his name--sailed to the annals of cigar history.
That beginning came in 1996, when the cigar world welcomed Rocky and business partner Phil Zhengi's Indian Tabac Company's**** "fresh ideas, bold packaging, and fuller cigars" and since then, his perfect tobacco blending and blending with smokers of his premium cigars is known throughout the community.

Speaking of blending, at which Rocky excels, these were accidentally purchased during the Broadway Cigars event...
|A smorgasborg of cigars!|
What's the cigar equivalent of nom-nom-nom?
Also during the event, Rocky Patel (the company) rep Max Bichler provided some cigars to give away to you guys! Cigars that haven't been released to the public yet!
And we also got Rocky to sign a couple of boxes for you!
These boxes are empty, but they're still signed!
|What's in the box?|
Nothing. Not. A. Thing.
So for now, we know there will be two first-prize winners. But of course we can't leave it at that! Stay tuned for The Adding of More Prizes.

they look like extras from a Sopranos episode.
****I'm sure he still is; after all, he's only been gone a few days.
*****Earlier this year, the company announced Indian Tabac's demise.
