Re: Herf etiquette?
Etiquette has a lot to do with location and also wiht the host or hosts as the case may be. I have been to a few herfs as well as being part of the P.P.P. we put on the best herf of them all, the SoCal Herf.
For starters, dress acordingly. Most herfs are informal and thus any casual wear will be fine. Except for Gerry in lingerie. I blame myself for that, becsause had I not asked he wouldnt have put it on. I knew my charm worked well with women, didnt know my power over effeminate males.
When a cigar is given to you, one is not and should not be expected in return. Try and bring enough to smoke for the evening as well as to hand out one or two. If you do not have one to give to anyone or do not have a "nice" cigar to give, just make a mental note to try and return the kindness on a later occasion.
Be a cordial guest. If food will be provided, ask if there is something you can bring. Do not make a mess, clean up after yourself, say please and thank you. Most herfs usually taek place amongst people whom dont really know each other. Conversation such stay clear of controversial topics, if one comes up, listen to the others who are speaking, if you disagree do it cordially and do not get into an argument! That would be bad time for those in attendence.
Always remember to show a little gratitude to the host(s)! This will assure a return invite!!!!!
Now, for some pointers in attending a SoCal Herf.
never let us see you cry!!!!!
