I wonder what level of interest there is in watching "The Havana" documentary at JJFox Robert Lewis?

I have a feeling that many of you have seen it but for those who haven't- it's a documentary shot by a German director about ten years ago. It features tobacco growing, cigar production and culture. There are lots of great scenes including (my favourite) in the el Laguito tasting room.

We could use the downstairs at Fox's; I have checked with Jean. I can bring the film on my laptop. If somebody else has a projector and a screen then we're in business!

I am free on Friday afternoons in January.

I have booked the 22nd January, 2010, downstairs at Fox's from 2-4pm.

I'll bring along a bottle of single malt.

Please can you confirm that you are available at that time. Obviously spaces are limited but we should be ok.

Yes, this is going ahead as planned. I'm looking forward to it.

For it to work best we need a projector and a screen. Let me know if you can help.

I hope you boys had a bloody good time.

I went to the dentist, half hour in the chair, can't drink me tea because me mouth is so numb, relieved me of the equivalent of 7 Reyes, smiled and said "see you again in April"!

Know where I would rather been. :( :( :mad: :mad:

I wanted to add my apology for not making it on the day. It was myself who Stephan first suggested the film showing at Fox's and I was fully up for it. I was getting ready to head up that day but had a not so minor family drama (all sorted, no real great shakes). I am VERY sorry I did not make it. I hear several of you did so do please tell ALL! Any amazing cigars dug out by M? Any stories?

Sorry to have flaked out on you.

sadly magali wasnt there, and jean or bill didnt come down for a watch

i had another fundadores and jean recommended a sancho panza belicosos aged. pleasant and creamy but not a taste bomb, wouldnt have another

would be great to arrange a little herf there sometime when magalis in and get some stories/special stogies going :)

nicwing
26-01-2010, 12:04 PM
And the film?

Lascaux
26-01-2010, 12:16 PM
fantastic, some great little bits in it and good to see it in JJs as theres so many shots of the store and how it used to be. you see simon chase in a couple of scenes too

nicwing
26-01-2010, 01:17 PM
OK, got to do it again...

Any chance of a Saturday early March when Magali is back from the Festival and working in St James's street?

Pretty please, I have a really nice bottle of 15 year old Macallan and some rip snorting 5 year old Sloe Gin?

and can offer zacapa 23 yr rum or diplomaticos gran reserva (beauty), or an unmarked bottle of extrodinary strength home-distilled obstler from tirol that put all the hairs on my chest and grew most of my beard too.
we can convert the museum into a speakeasy!

Thoroughly enjoyed my first herf with members of UKCF, and also first time I'd been down to JJ's basement & seen the museum. I thought the film was great: really informative & interestig to boot, although inevitably with several BOTL sat around with whisky & cigars, attention wasn't 100% focused so I wouldn't mind seeing it again.

Thanks to all for the company and especially to Stephan for arranging everything & brining the Ardberg.
