Weekend in Dallas (cigars)
Got back from my weekend trip to Dallas today.
Main project there was to attend the Alan Jackson, George Strait, Jimmy
Buffett concert in Texas Stadium. WOW! What a great evening. The music
started just after 5pm and finished up around 10:30. What a great time.
Was able to smoke a couple of cigars by the pool on Friday night at our
hotel. Had a Fonseca 898 to start the evening followed by a Padron 3000
that I really enjoyed.
Hit the Up in Smoke at the Galleria...bought some Masterblend Robustos, some
LGC Series R #4 and 5, and a couple of CAO Aniv. Mduro.
Also had all of 5 min. to hit the Up in Smoke Store in Irving. Picked up
some PAM Principe, Masterblend Torpedos, and some Oliva Bold Oasis. Would
liked to have spent a lot more time at this store.
If anyone can go by the store in the mall and pick up the two ashtrays on
stands they had on sale, tell them I'll give them $100 for both ; ) He
offered to give me 40% off of the $75 price tag on one of them. I just
couldn't bring myself to do it at the time and didn't have time to go back
today before we had to leave. bummer. Should have jumped on the deal, I
I have decided that all of you that have a local store are lucky in my book.
We have NOTHING within 2 hours of here. Internet prices a wonderful, but to
try a new single stick is very nice. Thanks again to all who have gifted me
smokes...that helps in my research and lets me know before I buy a box what
I'm going to like and what I should stay away from!!
Enjoy'em yourself or pass'em along.

Weekend in Dallas
That particular store is slated to go out of business in June. When
the Valley View location was about to close they put everything on
sale at 50% off. Raleigh is going to let me know when they start their
sale. I'll see what I can do for ya. Email me with your phone # and
I'll call when I am there and have a price.
