I'm going to be in San Francisco next week for a conference and was wondering if there are any tobacco shops I need check out while I'm there. I'm staying in the Fishermans Wharf area and won't have a car so some place in the general vicinity would be a plus.

OK, I'm not a cigar aficionado, nor do I profess to know a lot about cigars. But I have been inspired to review this cigar. Mainly because a few of us Puffers had gotten together and as is the custom passed around some cigars.
You see, I was talked into "trying" to smoke one of Ray's (Rock31)...

First, an explanation of the origin of this new cigar and why I am asking you to purchase as many of them as you can.
Many of you knew Steve Faccenda, for those who didn't, Steve was an extraordinary salesman and photographer for CAO. He was a genuine human being and I believe that everyone who...
Here's a few pics of our Herf at Don Fran's today! Kevin, bro, you were well-missed =(. Don't worry though, it looks like this is just one of many soon to come! Anyway, we had a great time, smoked a lot of quality cigars, talked up a storm, and otherwise planned to take over the WORLD! Well...
My wife and I did a 2-week trip to Nicaragua a month back. I'd smoked a few cigars (not to mention cigarettes for 10 years before kicking that) before but didn't really think about the cigar industry in Nicaragua before we went on the trip. But our backpacking ended up in Esteli, to learn...
Not sure why all these guys are tossing bombs at me here lately but this is #3 in the pass 2 weeks. I for once in my life find it hard to put into words my sincere appreciation for the awesome package that Lew sent me. The pictures are self explanatory. When the wife found out what the...

Hello, all. Found this forum about a week ago and am enjoying everything I've read so far. I've smoked cigarettes in the past (quit about 7 yrs ago) and have gotten into cigars since the last two months.
My current favorite smoke is the El Baton double torpedo. I've tried several others...
Im planning a trip to SF and was wondering if anyone could recommend cigar bars or chill out joints where I could enjoy a smoke, and if there are any shops you could recommend, Im all ears too.
