Old Man Herfer
jkim....now you need to post on which of the herfing etiquette items you actually used or didn't find worthwhile! Inquiring minds want to know!!
Great....nice to hear you popped you cherry with a good time and good experience!well, especially the stuff about not being worried about impressing anybody and just having a good time took a lot of pressure off my shoulders, as i didn't have to worry about having great sticks to share with everyone. Also, the stuff about gifted cigars was good cause otherwise i would have been afraid to take cigars especially if I knew i wasn't going to be able to smoke them there. I also ate before i got there, which wasn't necessary at this herf since dave (trishield) provided an awesome spread for us. Everyone was really generous and I had a great time. Definitely looking forward to my next herf.
The first known use of the word "herf" as follows:I now have an understanding of what a herf is, but I don't understand the word or the acronym itself. Can someone toss out a history lesson on that?
It's not required that you bring smokes for anyone but yourself. If you have them to share, great - otherwise don't worry about it. When others give you smokes - it's not required that you return the favor. You can if you want - but again not required. Smoke what you want - whether it's one or more or parts of some. I know that there can be some anxiety over a first herf - but really - it's nothing more than sitting around enjoying a good cigar, maybe some food and drink, shooting the shit - with like minded folks.Second question; I think I'd like to herf and I could certainly bring many cigars. I don't have the experience to say if they would "good" per se, but I could buy a mixed box for the occasion. However I seriously don't think I'd ever smoke more than one in a day. So would it be bad form if I only smoked one cigar at a herf? Would it be bad form if I smoked like a third of several?
Stands for Brick and Mortar. As in your local Cigar store.Also what is a B&M? Cause if its like S&M I don't have the warcquone for it…….
I think this only happens in California - so no problems elsewhere.And please tell me that etiquette dictates of someone who has the same "equipment" as I do starts showing off their pink fur thong that I'm allowed to run screaming from the herf????
Oh yea,and the S.H.I.T. in California meets once a week i think and they are sponsering the MegaMobHerf...
I agree, Tony. Dave's statement IS confusing.Me confused by above statement? I know they meet weekly, but?
I kinda figured that's what he meant but it made me wonder if I missed something. We are always looking for corporate sponsors however .I agree, Tony. Dave's statement IS confusing.
"the S.H.I.T. in California meets once a week" - Correct.
"they are sponsering the MegaMobHerf" - they meaning the MoB crew
Tom's a class-act! Heed his words of wisdom!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).
