Jas Sum Kral has announced that the 6th Ristefari meetup will take place in March as planned.
Ristefari is usually spread over two days and two locations. This year the main event takes place at The Golden Leaf in Hobart, Indiana on Saturday, March 13th. The Golden Leaf is an official JSK Cigar Lounge.
Ristefari is also a release event for new products from JSK. These new cigars debut at Ristefari and are exclusive for The Golden Leaf for several weeks.
Indiana has recently changed covid laws and there are no restrictions on the size of groups nor curfews anymore. The admission is only one dollar, but donations are welcome. All the donations are used to buy school supplies for local kids.
Ristevski says “expect controlled chaos. This is not an event, this is a real gathering of people who want to share and trade cigars and have a good time. But the past proved that things can get nuts with the hardcore Jas Sum Kral supporters. The owners and sales guys do shows and have said this is the best event they have been to. Everyone is welcome, people from the industry have an open invitation. Just leave your ego at the door or it might get checked.”
The closest airports are Midway and Ohara in Chicago. Jas Sum Kral recommends Hilton Garden in Merrillville Indiana as a good hotel due to the location. But many visitors use Airbnb and stay for a few days to check out cigar lounges in Chicago before and after Ristefari.
