I’m from the New York area, (grew up in New Jersey) and currently live in the East Village.
I’m an actor and a writer. You can check me out at www.GuyOlivieri.com for more details.
As for cigars! I’m a geek, so I like to keep a record of every cigar I try. I have a little book that I tape the bands into and make notes. Something like “June 13 – a Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Toro on my deck. B+ Really well made. Medium flavor, lots of smoke, great draw.”
Well, you can see I don’t know all the terms for flavors and whatnot, but I’m learning.
My go-to cigar is the Partagas La Familia Rosada. I can’t get enough of these. The flavor is medium, but with a peppery taste. Great cigar for after dinner.
I have a group of friends who meet monthly to smoke and catch up, which is my favorite appointment on my calendar. I can often be found smoking in Union Square or Stuyvesant Park on nice evenings.
