What it is

This is a virtual cigar social for lovers of the leaf to gather and enjoy fine cigars and pairings, share tips, tricks, recs, and general conversation.

For now, the socials will be virtual only, but stay tuned for announcements of some in-person gatherings near Everett, Washington to come!

Notifications will be posted in the Facebook group each month to remind folks of the date.

When & Where

When: Fourth Saturday of each Month

Time: 1500-1700 (3-5pm) Pacific Time

Location: Zoom. RSVP for invite link.

Topic: Pending

There's no official topic for the first social, however, I plan to introduce some topics, speakers, demos, and other fun stuff for future dates, hopefully with input from attendees on what sorts of things everyone wants.

What to expect

A casual and comfortable atmosphere, cigar smoking, discussion, answers to your cigar and accessory related questions, camaraderie, and a chance to see some old friends and make some new ones.

Rules

You must be over the age of 18 or legal smoking age in your country (whichever is higher) to attend this event.

Don't be a douche. In other words...

Be polite and respectful of other attendees.

Don't personally attack, name call, (non consensually) insult, or otherwise be a jerk to anyone. This is a safe place to hang out and to discuss pretty much anything, as long as it is not encouraging non consensual or illegal acts. Intellectual discussion of those topics are ok, as long as they don't get out of hand. The same is true of political or religious discussions, so long as everyone can be civil.

This is NOT to be confused with the kind of "safe space" where everything comes with a trigger warning, and nothing can be said that might be uncomfortable or upsetting to those with thin skin who find everything to be some kind of "ist".

Bigotry of any kind is not tolerated, but you might hear things that are un-PC, irreverent, off colour, or otherwise potentially offensive to someone. If it's not coming from a place of hate or intolerance, put on your big kid undies and deal with it. If you disagree, do it politely. If you think someone is being mean on purpose, ask questions to clarify and maybe politely explain your position. Don't attribute to malice what may simply be lack of understanding.

It's an event for grown ups, so act like one (juvenile shenanigans, tomfoolery, fart, butt, or poop jokes, and other for fun foolishness still totally welcome and encouraged! Embrace your inner 12 year old. Just be cool to people).

Bottom line: Don't make me invoke the "don't be a douche" clause! You won't like it. I promise.

RSVP Information

How and when to send an RSVP

When you RSVP to a private event, please bear in mind that you are essentially requesting entry to to someone's home (even if it is a virtual home). Simply sending a message demanding a stranger's address, virtual or otherwise, is quite rude, and simply unacceptable. (Yes; People have done this, repeatedly). That will guarantee an invitation to find something else to do.

It is customary, when asking to attend a private event hosted by someone you do not know, to politely introduce yourself and let them know why you would like to attend their event.

Ideally, you should RSVP at least two days prior to the event - preferably as SOON as you know you want to attend - and absolutely no later than six hours prior to the event to insure a spot for you. Last minute requests will be considered based on circumstances, but should not be a pattern.
