And so the journey begins - and how appropriate a title - Have Cigar Will Travel. About 10 years ago I ventured into the world cigars. I was introduced to them and found them to be a wonderful, relaxing enjoyment. When I travel, cigars offer me the opportunity to have some great conversations, partially being a lady cigar smoker, but add to that I tend to smoke strong and robust cigars. I also tend to pair my cigars with bourbon or whiskey, which furthers the conversation.
And so my blog begins...Because I travel so much, many friends often ask me for recommendations for restaurants, bars/pubs, and of course, wine. So this blog will document my travels, providing great recommendations along the way.
Today's blog finds me in Seattle, Washington, for meetings and a chance to catch up with some very good friends on the eastern side of the state, when I head to the Tri-Cities (for those who don't know, that would be Pasco, Kennewick, and Richland, WA). This weekend is business but also play time as I get to do some wine tasting and enjoy a day at the Water Follies, the annual hydroplane boat races.
Some of the wineries I will be visiting include Alexandria Nicole Cellars (going to visit their Woodinville location for the first time), Bookwalter Winery, and Thomas O'Neill Cellars. One of the other activities I'm very fond of is good music - and Bookwalter and Thomas O'Neill have great lineups!
