4th Of July Freedom

My favorite holiday is the 4th Of July. Freedom to do what ever you want, it’s a federal holiday so most people don’t have to work! It’s a nice long day, I wake up early just out of habit, eat a good breakfast and head out side and put up the flag. It’s a super positive day more than likely because everyone is very active. I am one who has to be on the water every 4th, the beach, a lake or by the pool as long as there is water. For lunch/dinner the food is usually cooked outdoors, some sort of BBQ, something from the garden and always more watermelon than you can eat. After a long day as the sun starts to go down everyone is looking nice and tan. And here is why I love this holiday, as you may want to wind down, the day is only getting ramped up! As you head back outside to see the fireworks you get your second wind, the night is young and the party is about to get started!

Remember the significance of the 4th of July. It’s Independence Day, the adoption of the Declaration of Independence (July 4th, 1776), declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain, now known as the United Kingdom. It is our country’s birthday so time to celebrate and enjoy the freedom to live the way we want. Especially today make sure you take advantage of your freedom and do at least one thing just for you!

Happy 4th Of July!!!

West Coast Cigar & Spirits Tasting Newport Beach, California

What do Belly Dancers have to do with Cigars?

“Cigar and Spirits” you can say one or the other and it’s an event I would like to be at, both together it’s a guaranteed success. The 4th Annual West Coast Cigar & Spirits Tasting, The Ultimate Lifestyle Event was held at the Newport Beach Hyatt presented by Cigar & Spirits Magazine. Cigars were presented as you entered in an outdoor tented area with live music, when you went inside there were Spirits, Food and more entertainment.

The advertising said, “Come and sample some of the world’s greatest spirits and cigars and to take home hundreds of dollars worth of premium cigar samples”. Tickets were $120, yet to sample the world’s greatest spirits and take home… is a deal. Paid events tend to attract true connoisseurs this one had, great camaraderie, from consumers and suppliers- you knew everyone wanted to be there. You were given a postcard when you arrived and as you visited with each of the cigar companies they would punch their logo (15 cigar logos on the card), and give you a cigar or two or three, a cutter, matches… The system is smart and organized, as juggling tasting spirits, food, entertainment, and cigars at the same time needs. Garo Cigars, Gurkha Cigars, Diamond Crown Cigars, Falto Cigars, Psyko Seven Cigars, Drew Estate, Rocky Patel… and more cigar companies, then you had Hangar 24 Craft Beer, Cognac, Moonshine, Bourbon, Nolet’s Gin, Tatratea, BuzzBar (alcohol-infused ice cream for adults), Tequila Uno, Abreojos Tequila, Comisario Tequila (shown in photo) and soo much more to eat and drink.

The following day I went through, the bag that was given to me when I arrived and which I used to put things in as they were given to me. I emptied it out (shown in photo) as I went through it, I remembered the passion and generosity of each company that participated in the event. This event gets better and better every year, I am sure the majority of the people who attended this year will be back next year as it once again exceeded expectations. What do belly dancers have to do with Cigars? There both smoking hot.
