Re: Herf etiquette?

If you mess with; the Fla Herf gang, bring a big box so you have something to carry home the debris. Our rule is if you touch it its yours, like in "do you think this is a fake band" when you look you're stuck with the stick.

Re: Herf etiquette?

As you participate in these, you will find that most of the people will become friends, so just treat them that way. I think a lot of herfers worry too much about what they bring, you'll get a feeling for it in time. Bring what you like to smoke, and what you want some others to try. If you are trying to impress people, you have the wrong idea.....and there are some here that you will never be able to impress with your selection, but can impress them with your attitude and friendship. The last herf I attended I had just moved, and my cooler was hidden behind so many boxes I could not bring anything. We met at a B&M, so I was lucky and could buy a few sticks. Bothered me some, but I realize I LIKE these folks, and it's all about the company and having a good time. We will meet again, many times.
I don't go to these things for the cigars, I go for the company.
Have fun!

Skeeter was here....

Re: Herf etiquette?

Herf Behavior.

Depending upon were you are going be sure to dress appropriate. If its a bar, jeans and sneakers are fine. If its an upper class place you may wanna wear shoes and a collared shirt just to be safe.

Bring some money for food and drinks. Be prepared to buy a few drinks as most people always switch back and forth buying rounds. Make sure you eat something as cigar smoking can do a number on your stomache.

Bring cigars, bring more cigars than you will smoke. There will be a lot of giving,swapping and smoking that day. No one expects any reciprication but it is nice to give it.

Most of all have fun smoke a lot of cigars and drive safely after the herf.

Re: Herf etiquette?

At the Myrtle Beach Herf (which was my first) I loaded a big ziplock bag full of smokes (no herfador) and when we met up I told everyone if you see something you want just help yourself.

Was it expected of me? NO I did it because I wanted people to have the chance to try something they may not have had the chance to try yet.

A Herf is a gathering of people with at least one common interest in hopes that new friends will be made.

Did I make new friends those couple of days? YOU BET

Just be yourself and you will make new friends. That is what a Herf is all about.


BTW I left the night with more cigars than I came with thanks to some generous gorillas.

Just have fun and don't worry about the other stuff.

BIA!!!

"we have ways of making you smoke" going to a FL HERF w/no cigars is like going to SKYPE w/out a working mic....IMO

I don't need Anger Management.....I just need people to stop pissing me off
