CigarObsession Studio 3.0 Reveal

Posted on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 in World of CO

IMG_0300After weeks of hard work and just over $4,000 the new backyard, and with it new CO Studio 3.0 is revealed! I really didn’t WANT to do this project, but here at the end I’m very glad I did. I lost some storage space (mostly the wife’s crap lol) but gained 5x the usable outdoor living area! I put together a little history slideshow and video montage with a talk through so you can see what I’ve been encumbered with since Thanksgiving!

A fruitful cooperation between cigar pianist and cigar composer began to develop which resulted in the launch of the AVO Classic Series; an almost immediate success selling over 120,000 cigars in the year of the launch in the United States.

Two creative masters collaborated with one purpose: help aficionados “Savor Every Note” in life through delightful cigars. (more…)

Guy Stuff – Penguin Gazebo Assembly Notes and Review

Posted on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 in Guy Stuff

IMG_0281A number of you have been following the build of the new setup and said you wanted to get one of these gazebos or my opinion of it. Since I couldn’t find anything online about it I thought while my thoughts are fresh I’d share some pros and cons. I just finished the assembly today so here’s all the major points I could remember. Bottom line I do recommend it, it’s a major pita to build but once up it’s super slick. I got it on Amazon. This is a Penguin 12×16′ 4 season gazebo. (more…)

Thank You Dave Ryder!

Posted on Monday, January 12, 2015 in World of CO

Thank-You!-1A big thank you to Dave Ryder, winner of the first charity auction, snagging the sweet AVO Cigars custom Record/MP3 player sound system for $500! It was a beast and with packing and insurance it was $77 to ship out to AZ, so that left $423 to go to the ASPCA!! This week’s ends in two days, and I’ll definitely have at least a couple more right after that so stay tuned!
