Wow... What a weekend ladies and gents. First and Foremost, I want to thank EVERYONE for coming down to Montreal, making this event a huge success. We had BOTL's and SOTL's from Montreal, Ottawa, Cornwall, Toronto and New Jersey in our great city over the weekend. As you guys probably seen, pictures are up in a thread Lisa started. Here is a quick recap of what went down...well just the stuff that can be mentioined on an online forum anyways... Friday we had what was dubbed at the Pre-herf for the Pre-herf, or the pre-pre herf. We met up at stogies cigar bar around 2 pm for some smokes. we were about 8-10 people having a cigar, sharing stories and laughter. After that, we went to Ruben's Deli for some world famous montreal smoked meat. If ever you guys go there, have the builders platter, 1 lb of smoked meat on a plate, bread optional...lol After that, we hit up La casa del Habano for Cigars and Drinks. We had a good group going Friday night and fun was had by all! Saturday, it was the main event. We started off by holding a meet and greet at the hotel Square Phillips. People brought a variety of Rhums, scotches and tequilas to share and drink. This was a great way for everyone to get aquinted and break the ice. Afterwards, we went out for dinner to the Bistro Gourmand Beaver hall. Food was exellent. Then it was stogies. 63 people were at the event at one point in time! We smoked, we drinked, we had a blast. As you saw we had about 32 lots up for auction. Some great cigar samplers in there, Art that was made and donated very generously by BOTL's and SOTL's. All in the name of Charity. As you might know, these herfs, yes we do them to get together and smoke, but the main purpose behind this to raise money for Rob Schildt's (freefallguy) Nicaraguan fund to feed the childeren...and that we did! We raised around 2100$ for the fund!! I will defenilty confirm the final amount once everything is finalized and accounted for. A big big big thank you to everyones generosity, by donating from their personal collection and also bidding on the lots. All in all the event was a huge huge success, and we will defenitly be looking foward to doing the 3rd annual montreal Herf in 2014!
