The En Fuego Second Anniversary Party

Take a great evening, fantastic cigars, live music, and a beautiful body-painted model; you have the ingredients for an awesome time in Vegas. Friday was En Fuego Cigar & Lounge’s Second Anniversary Party, and it was a blast!

En Fuego 2nd Anniversary, Las Vegas, NVEn Fuego 2nd Anniversary, Friday 28th, 6pm until…?

The guys at En Fuego Cigars & Lounge believe that where you smoke is just as important as what you smoke. You feel that when you are there enjoying a great cigar over a game of backgammon with a friend or just catching a game. It’s a comfortable environment of oversized chairs and good company — like home, only better. I don’t know about you guys, but my home lacks that walk-in humidor and large-screen HDTV dynamic. But En Fuego is more than a collection of cigars and good times. It’s about the people, celebration, and enjoying a great smoke. So, that’s what Friday was all about… a great crowd in celebration of their second year.

I just smoked a Cohiba the other day. It was great. You have to appreciate everything that cigar is.

My celebration came as body art. The beautiful “Alie” was my canvas for the evening. I painted her up with a cigar bandoleer and red “En Fuego” sash.

Happiness? A good cigar, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman – or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle.

Bill Tracy and the band.

It’s always an added bonus to paint to live music. Bill Tracy kept the place rockin’.

Look to the left of the band, and you’ll see INFINITY, my original painting on metal. I also brought along NIRVANA from my canvas series.

Michael Abdoulah, En Fuego Cigar & Lounge owner, is a true cigar aficionado – a connoisseur of fine cigars. He recommended, and I enjoyed, a fantastic Casa Fernandez cigar from Miami – the Aganorsa Leaf variety – black label. It was a great smoke and on my shortlist of cigars for another round. I could say that I’m an aficionado, too, but more tongue-in-cheek than cigar-in-hand. I’ve enjoyed cigars for over 30 years now (off-and-0n); I find that I am still learning about cigars even after all this time. At the same time, I enjoy sharing my passion for cigars with new cigar smokers – future aficionados. What a lot of non-cigar people miss, I believe anyway, is the comradery and good times that are part of the cigar experience.

En Fuego — on fire!
