El Primer Mundo was in a prime spot to enjoy Nick Perdomo playing the drums – but also in a nice corner booth right on a main aisle.

When I got to the booth, it was full of people enjoying the comfortable lounge chairs and talking to brand owner Sean Williams. Of course – it seemed nobody wanted their picture taken, so they cleared out while I shot the booth.

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
