Evening folks, sorry for the delay in the continuation of tale of this trip, but needed a good Friday and a nice Perdomo - Lot 23
Churchill cigar to really dig into this undertaking and wrap it up (Well, that and the far better equipped wifi at my local favorite Cigar Bar, Greater Trumps
, didn't hurt either.....)
For those that don't know it already, I'm a cigar Connoisseur, I enjoy cigars in the way that folks would enjoy a good Scotch, with a deliberate slowness of pace and copious rumination.
And no, I don't normally wear my hat backwards like a boob.
I only do that when I'm smoking indoors to keep the smoke out of my eyes and the heat from the infrared heaters above my head from baking my bald spot.
One of my favorite places to relax on the weekends (Aside from my Camper of course
) is at a good Cigar bar. Greater Trumps
generally fits that bill and happens to be my favorite.
Some of the more important reasons I find to call my favorite are:
One because it's a little side bar in the historic Bagdad Theater in Portland, Oregon.
Two, because unlike the other couple Cigar Bars that I know of, it stays open the latest; Midnight Sunday - Thursday, and One AM on Friday and Saturdays.
Three, they serve a nice menu of food and the happy hour grub is actually edible (Plus they have my favorite drink a good hand made beer milkshake, Yum!)
Four, my friends and I have been coming with enough frequency that we now qualify as "regulars" and the two lovely female bartenders know exactly what we want and have it coming round to our table of choice for the evening the moment we set foot in the door (or window, the front windows trundle out of the way allowing patrons open space and still retain the warmth and comfort of being inside at the same time.
So, now you know, the tales of the Redneck Express come to from time to time from my nicotine stained fingers amongst many of my fellow cigar enthusiasts.
But, enough about my Friday evening libations, let me continue with my tale of my journey in the big Northwest Fall Colors Caravan.
