All - you're lucky my girlfriend and kiddo abandoned me for the Brewers game today!
I wanted to check out the Tasting Room of Monona, but sadly they're closed on Monday. I ended up finding Drackenberg's, and found out that tomorrow, (Tuesday, 4/5) They're having an event! It's a $30 head charge...
I've got a job offer on the table in Madison making more than I do here in Dallas, Tx. Websites say cost of living is lower, so it should be like taking an even bigger raise, but googling around...I've found:
1. Apartments tend to be more expensive. The apartments I can get here for $600 a...
So after a bit of lurking I am finally going to post. I must say the slope is so slippery I didn't realize I was on the other side lol. I am at about 1 or 2 a day and sometime 4 or 5 on the weekends. I have been enjoying cigars for a bit over 10 years now. I went several years without but the...

The idea started by gvarsity in the Where to Smoke Cigars in the USA forum. I'm posting this to see how many would be interested to herf in Madison.
The location would be most likely be at Hemingway's Lounge in Fitchburg. The date is still unknown since it would be around the holiday's and not...
This is a limited option exclusive to active Elks living in or visiting the Madison area. The Madison lodge #410 is just blocks from the capitol on lake Monona. Due to their status as a private club they are allowed to have smoking in the bar area.
Great bar with a great view of the lake...

It is a...

This place is a little hard to find. It is in a little mall in a detached building on one side of the parking lot. The sign was not obvious to me.
Inside a classic looking cigar bar. Long bar...

This is a nice combo cigar/wine shop. The owners are very cool and one of them is always working. This is a shop not a bar but there are nice stools at a counter that feels a bit like a bar...

Should start with a quick hello. Hello. Thanks for having this forum.
Started smoking cigars when I was about 15. My dad owned a tobacco shop and I used to sneak a few good cigars from his humidor on occasion. I quickly garnered a taste for the real thing and have been a fan of a good stick...
I am heading to Madison (WI) on the 27-28 of Oct. for a Music Education convention. I was wondering if there are any good smoke shops around State St, and if there are any cigar friendls bars. I'll be looking to have a drink (or more) and a fine cigar (or more) on that Thursday, so if there...
