If you've met me, you know I am such a nerd, which flares at embarrassingly (mostly for Valentino) high levels. So while the rest of the dozenish folks sat back, relaxed, and listened to Steve tell us tobacco tales, I did this:
|Nerd level: Expert!|
Also, if I relax, I fall asleep.
As a matter of fact, tonight Valentino and I get to woohoo**** it up with him again! He's hosting a Sobremesa tasting at Millonzi's in West Warwick, RI, thanks to Paul Joyle and Mr. J's Havana (in the same town). Don't worry--I'll have a new tablet to fill!
We know what you're thinking (because we thought the same thing): What's a sobremesa and is it catchy?
Short answers: An awesome thing and I wish.
You know when in the movies (not so much in real life) after dinner the characters sit around the table chatting, drinking, enjoying a cigar and each others' company? That is sobremesa--appreciating life and its simple pleasures. No direct English translation, either in words or practice, exists. That makes me have the sad. Anyone interested in starting a Sobremesa Lifestyle Movement (SLM) with me? I'll try not to fall asleep when I relax!
Steve's Sobremesa, the first cigar from his Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, is composed of an Ecuador sungrown wrapper, Mexican binder, and long filler from both Nicaragua and the US and created at the Joya de Nicaragua factory in Nicaragua.
|Your vitola choices (so far)!|
|We've gotten some members of the French Alliance |
to organize the giveaway for us.
There's always that one guy perpetually on coffee break, isn't there?
He's living the Sobremesa lifestyle. At least that's what he told the general.
|Working hard for you.|
|Many winners this time around! |
Exactly how many will require math.
Math is dumb.

**It's a little over an hour drive. I fell asleep in the car almost instantly. I. Am. Awesome.
***NOT in a creepy-stalker way. More like a Deadhead/groupie kind of way.
****Haha. And this is irony at its best.
