Oktoberfest at Mike’s, the 5th Anniversary Customer Appreciation Celebration, has come and gone. But don’t be sad. We have great memories. And there will be plenty more fun events to attend at Mike’s Cigar Room in the not too distant future. Last Friday, Oct. 24, was the Big Day. The featured cigar, appropriately enough, was the Oktoberfest by Quesada, a cigar designed by master blender Manuel Quesada specifically to be enjoyed with beer. Especially dark beer. It’s a great cigar and, even if you missed the event, you can still pick up some of them. For your kind consideration, there is an independent review of the Oktoberfest Cigar found at http://www.sethshumidor.com/2014/09/cigar-review-oktoberfest-krone.html
Quesada also provided some excellent swag, including an event-only cigar, hats, lighters, and some beautiful beer glasses.
As is our custom, the 5th Anniversary Party featured incredible food provided by our good friend, Master BBQ Griller Chris Hoffmeister. Take a look at the awesome meats Chris prepared this year: Brats and, because it was Oktoberfest in Texas, Chris’s famous Jalapeno Poppers! Anybody who hangs around at Mike’s Cigar Room knows Chris. In case you don’t, here is a picture of him, taken at Mike & Nancy’s house this summer. Chris is second from left.
Our friends at Silver Eagle Distributing generously provided Oktoberfest-themed beers for the occasion. That kind gesture was much appreciated by all!
David Brophy, the Quesada sales rep, made his appearance. We like David. We have known him for many years. Hope you had a chance to harass David. It’s one of the best parts of any Quesada event.
After that, it was fun, lively conversation, cigars, beer, brats, poppers and even a couple of sides provided by Nancy. Specifically, 2 kinds of pasta salad and a strange but interesting pumpkin and green sauce-based dip. Whatever, people liked it. The festivities continued as long as reason and good sense would allow.
That was about it. All great things must eventually end. Hope you were here and had a blast. And thanks for your support. If not, there will be other events.
