We survived another year!

Posted By on January 2, 2018

Happy New Years to all you stogie chompin’, Whiskey drinkin’ crazy-ass clowns out there!  We made it through another year and since 2018 is already underway, I’m sure most of you guys are back to the grind and ready to get another year rolling right along.  Unfortunately we have no Packers playoff football to keep us going through these balmy days of early January but like any good fan we’ll look forward to next year.  In the meantime, Old Man Winter has been kicking Northeastern Wisconsin square in the nut sack the last few weeks and we know it comes with the territory so you have to live with it or create a website where you can bitch about it.  Like I did.

I hope that you all got a chance to spend some time with your families on New Year’s and then had a little time to yourself to kick back with a cigar and reflect new_year_dieton all that’s happened this past year. For some it was new homes, new grandkids or wrecked trucks. Too soon?  Yet for others it was the loss of a family member or a beloved four legged friend.  Whatever 2017 held, we all get a do-over that started January first. Some of you guys may have come up a few “New Year’s resolutions” in an attempt to pick a task and stick with it the entire year in the never ending effort to improve yourself.  Did you go with: lose weight, drink less, stop downloading so much porn?  Every year millions try to hold tight to their resolutions only to fall short.  I can’t admit to having any resolutions this year except to again try to make The Brotherhood bigger and better for you guys.  Okay, I guess I can try to shed a few pounds but only because if I don’t cop to that my wife will never leave me alone.  I can always blame my failure on her good cooking.

I’m offering up a New Year’s Resolution challenge to you guys to take a stab at.  Bring a new buddy to Cigar Night each month.  Yeah, that’s it.  It’s my version of a pyramid scheme.  You invite one new friend, then next month he invites one new friend and so on, and so on.  I can make a flow chart for those of you that are a bit slow but I think you should be able to wrap your brain around the concept.  I’m looking forward to seeing lots of new faces this year so help spread the word and get everyone that enjoys cigars in Northeast Wisconsin involved at in our club.

The first Cigar Night of the New Year will be on January 2nd at Prohibition Spirits and Cigar Lounge.  As usual, the whole crew is excited to have us back and I’m sure you’ll be impressed with the huge selection of goodies to choose from.  We’ll kick off at 5 so come on down after work for an evening in the warmth of tobacco nirvana with The Brotherhood.

See you tonight!
