Where I Smoke, Write, & Meet

These stops have proven to be good inspirations for my writing. The ambiance works, the stick choices vary, the staff helps...all work together for the cigar lover and (in my case) the poet.

 

Each location can send me a paragraph which I will post; by clicking 'Read on,' you will see my creative take and what has helped me feel comfortable and creatively stirred.

 

If you would like to be listed below, please Contact The Author. I will follow up for a visit, a reading/signing, and/or set you up to carry Spanish Cedar.

The Garage: my workshop

This stand will be provided to Brevard retailers; I will ship it for cost to other retailers who make a minimum purchase. I can make this in about any brand box, but my book logo will be on the front of the box.

 

As I calculate shipping expense, I am considering just making the template available. I knocked one out in five minutes with a coping saw; the wood is relatively soft. I will send a book cover to glue/affix to the wood with a minimum book order.

 

The second will cost nothing if you do the labor. Kind of like the cool Wood You furniture.

Havana Club

Munich, Germany

 

In the University area of the city.

 

The décor features signature slow-moving ceiling fans that circulate the smoky air around the bar, where dim lights glint off the vast array of rum and whiskey bottles that line the shelves.

 

Funky lounge and Latin music provides the backdrop for the cool conversation of the posh young crowd perched on red velvet sofas, sipping specialty drinks and smoking Cuban cigars.

 

There’s a certain mystique about Havana Club, and though the vibe is swanky and smooth, patrons can’t help but be caught up in its quiet energy – a notion that's obvious in the vibrant singles scene that also flourishes here.
