Make sure Ian tells you the NY Big Smoke story about the Taxi and the massive puddle...NOT a suprise ending.

I hope the protesters will not cause havoc in blocking the roads etc. Gonna have to map out a few alternative routes in getting home.

Looked like last night they had the West Side Highway blocked right by the Big Smoke event.

Another successful night. I only have a few pics but will post them later as I have a few things to do outside before the rain pays us a visit.

A good time was had by myself & AC, the Oliva team is always classy.

Here goes.
AC drove to my house, I thought I was taking over from there but AC said "Mum you're to old to drive at night, I'm going all the way" WTF...

So AC drives into the city, no traffic at all. We figure like last year we would park close to the event and then walk the 15 /20 minutes to the east side for lunch. Only thing is, it took us 4 parking garages before we found one that would take us. Instead of parking on the West Side Highway and 51st we parked on 54 between 9th and 10th.

Anyway we walked to Uncle Jack's steak house for a steak sandwich (AC), I had the burger recommended by AC. Last year we both had martinis but this year the driver was on medication so what the heck I had one one and busted AC's chops.

Here's a pic taken by AC:


I got up tp go to the bathroom and gave my credit card to the waiter. I guess Anthony saw what I did, he pulled my card from the waiter and took care of the bill. I came back to the table and AC gave me that look that I only get from my wife when I'm in trouble.

From there we headed to the cigar shop around the corner but they moved across the street in a no smoking building. No way were we spending good coin there without smoking the stogie.
So we decided to head to the event and set things up. By the time Ian and his crew got there we AC and I had both booths set up and were smoking a Nbr. 4 Melanio that we had with us.
The event lady came up to me and said "I have your cigars here but I need payment for them first" Do you have a check? Needless to say I called Ian and gave her the phone.
We got the cigars and started setting them up. AC used the technique that he came up with at CFest so it didn't take long to have everything ready for the event.

Here's a pic of the two booths:
The ST/ Nub booth:


The Oliva Booth:


Here's a pic of two of the Oliva guys:

Josh, the guy on the right worked with AC and myself at the Nub booth.

The start of the event:




After that we got super busy and no time for pics.
No pics of AC (something about him being Italian and didn't want his face in any picyures)..

Josh, AC and I had a ton of laughs working the booth together. It was a wide open concept (no booths in the middle) so it was far better working conditions plus we were right by the door which provided excellent ventilation. Lots of excellent scenery in the place but no Rudy Giuliani sightings.

Overall another excellent time, we were constantly working but we were allowed to take bathroom breaks. AC and I were busting each other chops but that's what good friends can do and Josh can give and take it.
Lots of good memories to tuck away and like I said a ton of laughs.

Thanks again to the Oliva crew.

So the only picture I took the whole night was this one here. Josh getting whiskey in a 19 cent champagne glass. I was breaking his chops telling him he looked like he was on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
We did have a ton of laughs. Josh was a nice guy and was able to give and take the abuse.

Just wanted to Thank the Oliva guys for the fine boxes of smoke they gave me. It was definitely not necessary but well appreciated.

This is only the 3rd show Ive done, twice at this event and last year at Cfest, so Im definetly not an old pro at this. One thing I can say is that you work very hard and its a killer on your back and legs. Other than the time you get to meet and spend with the guys on the forum, last year I meet Jay, George and Skip and a few others, theres not much time to sit and do anything relaxing.
The first thing you want to do is get out of your smoke filled clothes and take a shower.
