Non stop herfing in New York!

I had to zoom over to New York City last week for a meeting so I thought I’d make it into a few days non stop herfing:-)

Smoking rooms at the lovely London Hotel organized by Joshua R as usual…well done!

Meeting up with my ABF’s George and Barry on Tuesday we decided there was no time to waste so we headed out for a pre herf at The Carnegie Club which was a very short walk from the hotel.

A few of those Oliva and Padron cigars later 😉 and it was time for dinner with friends at Abigaels Well done to George getting this organized and thanks to owner and celeb Chef Jeff Nathan as the food and service were impressive if not quite excellent. Jack, Jay, Yehuda and Matt all joined us and I think this restaurant will be a firm favourite

Time for some serious herfing and meeting yet more friends this time at the Grand Havana Room 19 floors up with the most spectacular views as well as incredibly welcoming hospitality. Many thanks to Randall.

I think we lost count of how many cigars we went through so all in all a satisfactory days herfing that ended around 2 a.m. !

Wednesday, we made an early start with a quick smoke at De La Concha and as its a Davidoff shop these days, I decided to smoke a Davidoff which was a lovely morning smoke.

We then headed to Florios in Little Italy where owner Larry took great care of us as ever. Lunch, drinks, smokes… Florios is the coolest

Dinner at Prime Grill and the great Plume or Mold debate raged with humidor maker extraordinaire Arlin Liss I think I put everyone straight 🙂

Back to Grand Havana room for a long evening of herfing. Thanks to Josh and Jack for the very tasty wine tasting 🙂 and thanks to Henry for the delicious 1940’s Corante Havana cigars which were a delight. I don’t think we got back to the hotel till 3 a.m !

Thursday and more smokes at De La Concha ( TY JB for the Padron 45-yes it was very nice indeed) followed by lunch at Solo

Up till now the weather had been great but it started to turn nasty so we headed out towards the airport to meet up with Jack for a last smoke and drink before catching our flights back to reality and a diet!

So I’m now catching up with a little rest and then off to Geneva for lunch with friends on Monday 🙂

Have a great weekend

Peaceful puffing
