I don't have a go to either this was just this weeks pick. I like to try a lot of different kinds. My favorite thus far has been a San Luis Rey special reserve. They run $5-8 at my local store.

As for smoking location, I prefer a tobacco store down the street from my apartment which also includes a lounge. I live in Cincy and one of the regulars is the Big O Oscar Robertson. I called it quits at the office last Friday around 4 and headed there to light one up to celebrate the coming weekend. The man himself was holding court in the smoking lounge. I picked up my personal fav (Saint Luis Rey Especial Reserva, Im a beginner and this is by far my favorite so any similar ie cheaper recommendations would be appreciated) took a seat in one of the leather chairs and listened to the Big O opine on the sports news of the day with a few personal stories from his playing days.

Reading this forum got me to break out another Romeo y Juliet reserve. Again I'm very much a beginner. The wrapper is very dark seems to be my preference. 

Can anyone shed light on what makes the wrappers different per their colors? Does darker = stronger?

I wasn't a cigar guy until recently visiting Europe and was able to smoke a bunch of Cubans. My favorite were Romeo y Juliet No 1 and Partagas. When I got home I immediately went to the cigar shop and picked up some Romeo y Juliet reserves. I have to say the Reserve was better better than any cubans I had.

Ill be doing JV and under for the first two years so mainly working 3-4 person crews. Today was a freshman scrimmage and I was scared shitless the first series. I played my whole life and watch football incessantly. I thought I knew everything. Soon realized I don't know half I thought I knew.

I am working hard and reminding myself not only one because there is never just one.

If you see my previous forum posts, you will see I recently got engaged. The engagement is still on but there is a lot of work I have to do to prove to her that I am committed to this
