HERF #4 - CHICAGO HABANOS SOCIETY - LIVE THREAD!!!

We are CRAZY in Chicago and this is the invite to our next HERF! All FoH members are welcome!

We picked a Saturday in the weekend right in the middle of Superbowl and Valentine's Day weekends,

In honor of the SuperBowl and the ridiculous coverage of it, I’ve decided to start our LIVE THREAD about 5+ hours before it kicks off!!!!

IT’S GAMEDAY!!!
 

So many choices, so little time!

Date: Saturday, February 8th, 2020

Time: 1pm to Late

We will be there well into the night! For a long time! So no worries if you want to show up a little later.

Food: Smoque BBQ (https://smoquebbq.com/)

Josh @inter4alia and I have decided to cater in Smoque BBQ Beef Brisket for the CHS HERF.

This is our treat to CHS!

We will have Baked Beans, Mac 'n Cheese, Cornbread and Mini Buns as well!

!!FOOD WILL BE DELIVERED AROUND 5PM!! and open to all CHS HERF Members and Guests.

Specifics:

1. We can bring in our Cuban cigars and smoke them all day and night!

2. You may bring in your own alcohol to drink. They have glassware to use there for any beers, liquor or wine we bring in.

3. They have a large variety of non-alcoholic drinks for sale.

Entrance Fee / Cost / Minimum Spend Per Person:

Big Mike’s has been kind enough to allow us to come into their establishment, take up valuable space and allow us to smoke Cuban cigars that we obviously cannot purchase there.

We worked out a deal where everyone attending is asked to buy a couple of sticks from the humidor as an “entrance fee.” Or you can just pay a $20 flat fee or make other purchase(s) totaling $20 or more. This is an incredibly low minimum spend per person for a HERF!

This applies to EVERYONE who attends the CHS HERF!: CHS & FoH Members, Guests, Smokers and Non-Smokers.

This is my local B&M and I love this place and have a special relationship with the ownership / management to be able to host this special event so please remember to throw them a few bucks for extending us this courtesy!

Attendees:

Please reply in this thread to us know if you will be able to attend so that we can give Mike's a head count and reserve the right number of tables.

Everyone is welcome to do whatever they want regarding sticks. No pressure. I generally bring quite a few sticks as do some other guys. Other people just bring a few to smoke. But, if you are interested in trading there will be serious opportunity. My motto is come loaded for bear!!!!

That's still outdoor smoking weather in Chicago. We are only having the Herf indoors to keep the BBQ warm ?

Thanks for the opportunity to set-up clubs in FoH! I think the Chicago Habanos Society - FoH Club is going to be a beast!
