Cigar Dinner at Le Vele

Le Menu
The dinner table

On the 29th, (day-before-ysterday) I went to a La Casa Del Habano’s cigar dinner at Le Vele restaurant. It was very good. We had a Cohiba Robusto before dinner, which was really nice (both the cigar AND the dinner) and we had a Punch Double Corona after dinner. I had a good time, good conversation with people from all over the world, and I was the very last person to leave.

I sat on the corner of the long table, next to a friend of mine, Sergio. from Mexico. Everyone calls him El Matador. I discovered Sergio has a counterpart to my Travlin’ Tim, El Mini Matador.

El Mini Matador

El Mini Matador critiques restaurants around the world, as well as cigar dinners and wine fests. He has a wine glass in one hand and a cigar in the other.

El Mini Matador made me re-think Travlin’ Tim… Travlin’ Tim usually stays at home, except when I get on a plane. I have a smaller gnome that could go anywhere with me. He could get some good photo ops. Got me thinking…

Today is New Years Eve, tonight the wife and I are going up to Cobalt Coast Resort, I have a friend from the US visiting there, and we and another couple are going there to be with them. And they have fireworks are at 9PM, perfect for an early-to-bed guy like me! The wife and I will probably end up awake at midnight, watching the rest of the fireworks from our roof, like always.

So I hope you have a safe New Years Eve, and a healthy, happy and prosperous 2019. And I’ll see ya next year!

  1. Happy New Year! We’ll have a family dinner here for the New Year, too, but will be in bed long before Midnight. I’m sure the New Year will arrive just fine without use being awake to see it. 😉
