Cigars, fine cognacs, wine, etc.,. Jackson is the owner. It has been in the works for awhile. I wish him the best!

Is that the Orson Wells-looking character who used to run the cigar shop on the first floor of Inn on the Park?

Cigars you say?

Fine wine you say?

Humor us poor, outta-da-loop folks with some details, I beg of you.

One of my friends forced a bud light lime on me and it was actually not as bad as I thought it would be. Has anyone else given it a crack?

He's a cool guy. As the smoking ban was approaching, he had the attitude of wanting to fight those sonsabitches, but also seemed to be formulating a plan on adapting to the inevitable.

I'll have to visit his new establishment.

I wish Jackson all the best. It makes me happy to see someone's dream coming true. Orson Wells is dead-on and I mean it in a nice way. :D
