Episode 124: It’s Just Depressing
– Local Spotlight: Smoking at the Firepits

Just about every cigar lounge is in an area affected by some form of shutdown due to the Covid-19 response. Most shops have resorted to curb-side pickup only. Call ahead to your favorite shop and support them in this time of uncertainty. It’s a challenge doing a podcast that focuses on cigar lounges when they are all closed. It’s just depressing, but we will forge ahead with creativity and adapting to the environment. Even this weeks Hidden Herf is a bit depressing.
