    Gilberto Leon | 1921-2008

    I've probably driven past this shop a few times (when I use to live in LA) and never realized it's there. Sad to hear a passing of what sounds like a great individual and someone highly respected by those that bought his cigars.

    Admit it

    I must know kung fu because I snatched a Tat Petite outta Mark's hand. :r Every once in a while you'll be able to catch me smoking a Punch Roths (the NC kind) Maduro. I don't keep them on-hand, but it's one of those "I'm in the mood for" type of things. They're tasty and I'm not afraid to...

    5 bottles of Scotch $250 budget

    Beware of this offer. Mark has been slowly corrupting us fellow Stumptown herfers with his offers of "try this whisky/scotch" when herfin' at his house. He let us sample this one scotch/whisky one night that was so smooth and had a "hard candy" finish. Too bad that single bottle would cost far...

    BOTLs in Portland OR, Astoria

    If you're going to be nearby Downtown Portland, there's always Rich's ( As for Astoria, I've never gone cigar shopping there so I don't know if there's a B&M around those parts. Good luck with the fishing!

    Project of the Day : Winador Drawers

    Figure tube (tubo) -> spacer -> drawer to make a handle.. you could slide a wooden dowel into the tube, and run a small gauge wood screw through the front of the drawer, down the pre-drilled spacer, and into the dowel in the tube (all pre-drilled to ease assembly and alignment and to prevent...

    I made my first Youtube video. Hah!!!

    Now this needs to be combined with the other great YouTube "science video". What happens when you drop HCM beads into a bottle of Diet Coke? Will is spew like Mentos or explode? :r

    It all comes down to personal preference to cutters. I personally use a Palio, but Mark (vstrommark) uses a Xikar because it works/fits better in his hands. Does that make one any better than the other? Nope, just goes to show that different mechanics work better for some people than other. My...

    Uh-huh. Aren't you posting in the wrong forum for that kind of advice? :D The line-up looks really good, Economist! A nice range of cigars to try from depending on mood, situation, etc. I personally wouldn't go for the 5 Vegas Golds, but then again I'm not a light cigar smoker and can't really...
