Herf etiquette?

Hey guys, I was just wondering, what is appropriate herf behavior? like how many smokes should i bring, how long should I anticipate staying, etc. I just want to make sure i'm adequately prepared before I herf...

Re: Herf etiquette?

you don't HAVE to bring anything for anyone else. Some people do... some dont. If you don't have the means to pass something out to everyone don't feel bad about it. As far as how long it will last that depends on the herf. Some may just be a few hour deal others go late into the night. My motto is it is better to bring too many than not enough. You can always bring some back home with ya.

Re: Herf etiquette?

If the herf is at someone's house, I would definitely bring a cigar or a bottle of wine for the host.

If the herf is at a B&M, buy something there as a thank you for letting you sit and smoke in their business.

If someone hands you a cigar, and you are unable to reciprocate, say "Thank you". (credit to Bruce for that one).

I have herfed alot of times over the years. The main thing is bring what you feel comfortable with bringing. True B'sOTL could care less what you bring as long as you dont come of as a mooch. Just be yourself and have a great time.

Also, remember to eat all of the hosts bacon and maple syrup. When asked, fail to remember the hosts name. I find these to be helpful as well.

Did I hear bacon?

No real etiquette. Bring cigars and whatever you think might be a good addtion to the party and most importantly, the intention to have fun.

Re: Herf etiquette?

I'm glad this topic was brought up. Never having been to a HERF before, I was wondering the same thing. I might have to bust out the good stuff for the Mega MOB.

Re: Herf etiquette?

Some people bring a box to pass out and others don't, it's entirely up to you but the like previously stated - "it's all about the brotherhood" so have fun and talk to everyone!
