I do love a good lightly dirty vodka martini with Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives.

Yea, I forgot to mention the blue cheese olives, a must. That's a good frigging drink right there.

The cigars my buddy had, and the one I tried of his "stash" was rolled that day in Cuba when he bought it. You can buy them from the guys who actually roll them for a job. They're allowed 5 cigars a day to take with them and they routinely sell them outside the factory for a couple of bucks a smoke. The cigar I tried was rated one of the top ten in the world, but it was, like you said, too big a smoke.

My wifes uncle visited us from Cuba.I told him before he left to grab me a bunch of cigars.My wife told him not to because he could get in trouble.He pulled me outside and handed me a bag of 25 assorted cigarsThey were OK but there are cigars with cuban seed that are better.A humidor is a must and keeping them at the right moisture and temp is key.Sometimes even high end cigars have a dud in the box.
I love dirty Martinis with the garlic stuffed olives.Unfortunately Im trying to lose another 10lbs so Im drinking either a beer or a shot per week unless I workout more.Havent had a chocolate bar in 2 weeks.

Re: Spearboard bar

Orange Creamsicle

Pinnacle Vodka in Whipcream flavor.
Orange soda(dont go cheap)

Pour a few ounces of the vodka over crushed ice and add soda on top with whipped cream.Tastes just like a Orange Creamsicle.

Its hard to taste the booze in this drink and on a hot day they go down quicker than one of Bill Clintons assistants so you have been warned.

Re: Spearboard bar

Damn, Tim...you are making me think favorably of you.

There's zero reason for denying one's self some good dark chocolate along with a good spirit to accompany it along with a good cigar, IMO. It is one of the finer legal vices in life.

You cant rush a cigar.If you try burning a 40 minute cigar in 20 you are going to be dizzy high and possibly get sick.You wont get to taste the flavor as it changes through the burn.Hand rolled cigars need time to enjoy.When I can get on the lake or river without having to tie on lures or flies for kids I break one out and kick back.Otherwise I wont light up.They are a treat for me.I probably MIGHT smoke 10 in a year unless I get around my Marine buddies then we get stupid

I agree but when you get older it takes a lot of exercise to burn it off.I want to be at 215-220 #at 6'2"thats what I weighed when I was 30.Ten more pounds will take stress off the knees and back.I have never had to diet because I was always running or swimming.Now that the knees and back have revolted I can watch what I eat or get fat.

Re: Spearboard bar

Dark chocolate in moderation won't make you fat. I've been 6'3" 235 for decades. Moderation and healthy eating is key.

Ive been around 225-230 for a while.Doc said if I lose weight it would help on the knees.I like beef.Now Im doing smaller portions and more vegetables.I started adding chicken and as much sushi as my wife is willing to roll.I havent had a soda or sweet tea in over a year and dont miss them except for rootbeer floats.My metabolism slowed waay down at 50 so if I want to stay in 34 waist Wranglers Im going to have to change some things.

That's pretty much what my friend said; I have to give it time. But crap, I wasn't inhaling anything that tasted like it had a path to getting good. I have it back to him and he smoked it. I kept "tasting" every now and then, but, like I said, I'm a slut; drinks with umbrellas and a cheap cigar and I'm a happy guy.

I started by buying sampler packs.Once you find the taste you like you can stock up.Ive tried some cigars that people raved about and they tasted nasty to me.I like the Maduros with a medium to heavy body but I go slow and enjoy it.La Perlas and Rocky Patel are my favorites.Cuban style cigars are typically milder with a light colored wrap and a hint of vanilla.My maduros usually have notes of leather,dark chocolate and earth with full bodied smoke so they can be overwhelming.Woman I know was visiting my BIL in florida and was drinking with us and decided she wanted to try my cigar.That lasted about 5 minutes and she went to lay down

Re: Spearboard bar

I've never been a tobacco addict; smoked two cigarettes during childhood; smoked a pipe for week as a Frosh; Frosh & Soph consumed 6 Rum River Crooks; @44 did a "small" chawl; tobacco free ever since. I have been invited to smoke a cigar several times in the last decade; alwas declined. Maybe i ought to give it s try.

Btw of course i swallowed the chawl drinking beer.

I tried two cigarettes and turned green half way through both.I tried chew but that spitting is just nasty. I have a pipe which is nice if you dont mind re-lighting.Its a lot cheaper than cigars by a long shot.I seem to lose them like sunglasses though.

You need a mug,small saucer,cinnamon sugar,whipped cream,Amaretto (1-2 shots or more)and your preferred coffee.

Put cinnamon sugar on saucer,wet lip of mug with Amaretto and rub into sugar
pour in shots and add coffee.Top with whipped cream and more cinnamon sugar.I added salty caramel syrup on top of mineSo much for my diet
