Yes it has a smoking lounge, Last time I was there, I don't know of any membership club.Sorry to come to the thread late...but we've just decided to move to Orland...
Is Belicoso just a cigar store that has a smoking area, or is it also a membership club?
Thanks in advance...
hehehe not at Belicoso...I believe knowing Than (tchariya) is the only membership you will need.
My bad, Than, I obviously was thinking of Bull and Bear.hehehe not at Belicoso...
But at Bull and Bear in Naperville there is no membership fee...but be kind to the store owners and buy something before cracking out your travel humi to smoke your collection!
It (Belicosos) looks like a very nice place, but the uppity attitude seems to gush from the seams; or as the people that go there to visit tell me. Then again, I only hear this second hand. It is a major drive for me to go there and experience it on my own.
I can't really comment.
I was under the impression that it is standard man practice to shake the trees, slap the ground, and pound ones chest to assert manliness and coolness, kind of like a primal hand shake. :r I actually love belicoso. It's got good selection, alright prices for a B&M and is comfortable (I do wish their lounge was bigger though). I don't think I've ever noticed anyone really trying to impress anyone there. However, when I go I'm with a group of friends and don't pay much attention to anything else. In fact I'll be up there Friday sometime late afternoon.Than, I do have to agree, the unfortunate downside of the reduced number of places to enjoy a cigar is that it is hard to find a place where guys just enjoy a smoke and don't try to impress one another...I do find if you let them get that off their chest, they aren't all bad.
