The Case for Cigar Lounges

I just got done reading this impassioned plea for… No, that’s not right. I just got done reading this inane plea for continuing to outlaw cigar lounges in the state of Washington (HERE). It’s written by a couple of guys who serve on Boards of Health for their respective counties, so you can guess at […]

On Saturday morning, the sections were joined over a several hour period and the final adjudication was made later that day.

Before the announcement, Reyes said, “We’re gonna have a brand new record!”

Fortunately, his hard work paid off, and the record was his.

And if you are one of those people who do not believe everything you read then here is video proof!

That is one BIG cigar!
