The Dojo crew was honored to be a guest at the Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival in Boulder, Colorado, yes… I said Boulder, Colorado—a place where you go unnoticed if you have a joint hanging from your mouth but people look at you as if you are an alien if you are smoking a cigar. Either way, this great event grows every year and now the most recognized names in the industry are here showing off their brands.
The Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival is brought to you by the fine folks from Smoker Friendly and it is clearly the biggest event of this type in the region. As I strolled through the booths I posted a few highlights here in this article as well as on the Cigar Dojo app of course.
Also on hand was Jonathan Drew, Matt Booth, and reps from all the major cigar manufactures, distilleries, and breweries. There was certainly something for everyone. My only minor complaint is the venue. The Millennial House in Boulder Colorado doesn’t have nearly enough parking to accommodate the Festival attendees. I had to park in the Safeway parking lot in a sea of “Do Not Park Here – Violators will be towed at owners expense” and therefore I was a bit on edge all day long. In fact I left about an hour earlier than I would have just because I was nervous about my car being towed.
All in all it was a great event and the place was packed. The food was good and I will certainly be back next year.
