Editor’s Note: It’s the last Weekly News before IPCPR 2012 and it’s a busy one. The halfwheel guide to IPCPR will debut Wednesday morning and our IPCPR coverage continue all throughout the week. There will be plenty more tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday—as there is shockingly, a lot more to announce. In addition to visiting halfwheel, don’t forget to follow the halfwheel staff on Twitter: Brian Burt (@Brutus2600), Patrick Lagreid (@PHXCigarGuy), Brooks (@elbrooksie), myself (@elninodiablo) and the official @halfwheel account. For those at the show, all four of us will be in Orlando—we love talking to readers and getting feedback.

For those not in Orlando, make sure to stop by the site on Friday.

I am an editor and co-founder of halfwheel.com/Rueda Media, LLC. I previously co-founded and published TheCigarFeed, one of the two predecessors of halfwheel. I have written about the cigar industry for more than a decade, covering everything from product launches to regulation to M&A. In addition, I handle a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff here at halfwheel. I enjoy playing tennis, watching boxing, falling asleep to the Le Mans 24, wearing sweatshirts year-round and eating gyros. echte liebe.
