Broadway Cigar Club, Portland and Lake Oswego
Broadway Cigar Company Cigar Club meets once a month and is now offering a second cigar club at the Lake Oswego location. Membership in both clubs has been steadily growing, and as the warmer weather approaches, members will be enjoying outside herfs at both the Broadway’s private outdoor smoking areas.
Why people attend is easy- people getting together to smoke and share their personal review of a single cigar. Members enjoy what usually turns out to be spectacular barbecue from the Traeger prepared by our very own chef Tom. Genuine knowledge of the cigar itself and its manufacturer is thrown out there for the members to question, comment on, and add their own valued input.
This Month, La Palina
The featured cigar for Broadway Cigar Company’s Cigar Club this month is La Palina. What is special about this cigar? The story itself is an interesting one. But it is common knowledge that Abel (Abe) Flores is one of, if not THE best, Master Blender with the selection and construction of cigars having a Brazilian wrapper. Abe is from the Dominican Republic and is with PDR- the maker of La Palina.
We, at BCC had the distinct pleasure of meeting Abe last month. Our friend, Ed Ryan, describes the La Palina Classic as unbelievably special and embellishes Abe’s description of smoking the La Palina Classic cigar by saying it is “like enjoying the music of a great jazz ensemble in your mouth.”
Become a Member
Broadway Cigar Club Membership has its privileges. The current rate is $100 annually, and while the featured cigar is free- as is the barbecue, you are expected to purchase an additional cigar of your choice from the supporting club. This private club is based on a shared love of cigars, while some business between members occasionally occurs, it is frowned upon to promote or solicit business here! This is not a networking outfit. Cigar Club is a group that, while light at heart, remain serious about their herf.
Stop in and ask one of the guys at Broadway for information if you are interested in becoming a member.That would be Greg, Tom, and Karl at our flagship store at 36th and Broadway. Lake Oswego BCC’s go to guys are Tony, Rick and you will find Karl there on occasion as well.
