Rocky PatelMizz Rengers, my boss Lori and I had a spirited debate last week as to whether a cigar rolling event belongs on a dining blog, particularly a dining blog authored by someone who can’t really tolerate smoke of any kind.
But I decided to relent, mainly because I know the event Carrie was suggesting I publicize is going to be very cool, if you’re into that sort of thing. (And they are serving refreshments.)
From 6:30 to 9 p.m. tonight, master cigar roller Rocky Patel will put his skills on display at Auburn Spirits Cigar Shop, 13303 W. Maple. He’ll roll 100 fresh cigars, which then will be distributed and smoked.
Tickets to the event are $10 and include two raffle tickets for prizes such as cigar rolling lessons, a fresh rolled cigar and refreshments. Patel’s cigars also will be sold at special prices.
