Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Famous Smoke Shop‘s Cigarnival. It’s a 2 day, multi-vender event held at their Easton, PA location. I spent several hours there hanging out with the cigar folks and enjoying a few cigars. I attended this event last year, and they’ve made quite a few improvements in my opinion. The constructed one massive tent this year, as opposed to the multiple tents they had last year. The food was also stepped up. At dinner time they brought in some pigs. I swear I saw a woman walking around with a roasted pig head. Not my thing, but the food I had was good (hotdogs and hamburgers). There were a bunch of cool things going on at the Cigarnival, besides 800 attendees smoking their brains out, and all the great vendors whom I’m glad I got to spend some time with. Flor de Gonzales hosted a cigar rolling competition throughout the day. Attendees had the chance to put wrappers on pre-mad bunches. I thought this was a great way to give consumers a glimpse into the skill it takes to make these great cigars. There were raffles throughout the day, lots of cigars and humidors and goodies, and someone may have won $100,000 fro La Gloria Cubana. There was also a Drew Estate sponsored Casino in the evening. Last year I remember watching Rocky Patel cheat like crazy, but I didn’t hang around long enough to see if he did that again. As I had a hour and a half drive home, I cut my visit short. Famous really puts on a great event. The vendors they had were great, the food, the cigars, the people, all top notch.
