Desiree Udell is still here. She would like you to know that and if you are looking for cigars, or perhaps even liquor, it seems like it might be in the booth. Udell would also like you to know this booth is “plan b”—although perhaps more functional than others. As for what’s new, it’s less about new product (there’s none) and more about who is not here, as Clayton Phillips is no longer with the company.

Carmelo Cigars

2015
Udell told halfwheel she plans on creating three lines of coffee to pair with Carmelo Cigars and it sounded like there might be plans for another cigar, although “concrete” is probably not the right word to describe it.
