Smoker Friendly: Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival
Last week I had the pleasure of attending the 2nd Annual Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival hosted by Smoker Friendly! A Beautiful setting, great cigars, microbrews, spirits, cigar celebrities and an amazing crowd of people- what more could you ask for?
Upon walking into the event you are greeted with a bag of cigars for you to enjoy along with a commemorative glass to taste new spirits with. Also in the bag are lighters, drink coupons, a Cigar Press Magazine, a cigar cutter, and other great treats. Once in, you also are given a raffle ticket to place in the box prize of your choice! This means as you walk through the booths, you can decide which prize is the one you want to go after (not to mention better chances at something you really want).
It’s very exciting to see such a successful cigar smoking festival happen in Boulder, Colorado. Tickets sold out this year, and there were more people anxious to get in. (Keep this in mind for next year- don’t wait until the last minute, save your spot as soon as you can). The view of the mountains as you smoke a cigar in the company of happy fellow cigar smokers brings a beautiful focus of community and lifestyle. After all, that is what it is all about.
I met so many great people, and really enjoyed bonding over new whiskies, beers, and discussing our favorite cigars. The weather was gorgeous and the VIP area granted us many comfortable seating options to enjoy these conversations over. Food and beverages were easily accessible and the staff was very friendly as well. Everything was done first class.
And let’s not forget the music- the band kept the energy high with an assortment of great tunes (performed very well I might add). I’m definitely looking forward to next year!
I want to thank Terry Gallagher from Smoker Friendly for inviting me to be a guest at this beautiful event and for taking the time to talk to us and explain what it is all about.
