He isn't supposed to, but like any college in LA enforces rules *eyeroll*.
I've puffed away merrily in Tiger Stadium befoe without an issue. The can't police every smoker, so they don't bother really.
Oddly, UL-Lafayette managed to win one...but then they won against UL-Monroe....it really...
Having never smoked a Macanudo in my life, I sat down at the shop and dedicated a day to Macanudo a while ago when we got these in. Over the course of 7 hours and two meals, I smoked 4 different ones from the shelf (Cafe, Robust, Maduro, and one other I forgot) and then sat and smoked the 1968...
Glad I could offer an opinion on the matter to help :)

I just buy mine in bulk from Ronson. I'd pay the extra buck and a half any day for a reliable lighter.

Roughly squeezing them (people...

One little thing can revive a guy, and that is a piece of rhubarb pie,
Serve it up, nice and hot, maybe things aren't as bad as you thought,
Momma's little baby loves rhubarb...
All of the ones I've seen seal very well, and are made with nice thick wood. They all hold humidity very well...as in the humidipak that came in the box with the 10 cigars kept the 10 cigars fresh and smokeable for about 8 months after we got the box in.
I see no reason why compromise can't be reached. I too, live in an apartment complex, and my neighbors are avid cigarette smokers, however they loathe my cigar smoke for some reason. I hate the piles of butts they leave on the ground outside of their apt on the lawn and sidewalk.
So I made a...
