So, after many hours of travel, I’m here, sitting in McDonalds using their free wireless (and having coffee, I’m not a total mooch…). I’ve gotten my official badge and am looking forward to attending the blending seminar hosted by Jose Blanco this afternoon. Before that, I hope to meet up with some old friends for some cigars over at Casa Fuente at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. I’ve been mentally planning the next several days, looking forward to being on hand while General Cigars presents Las Vegas Icon Wayne Newton with a check for the USO, visiting with many manufacturers and industry types whom I’ve come to know over the years, all with video camera in hand so I can share some of the inside info with you. I’ve tried to anticipate every conceivable problem, but still managed to pack a video camera with an empty SD Card slot, no worries, I have one in my still camera, as well as a spare video camera (even if it is pink!). Hopefully I am able to collect a great deal of useful and entertaining information. If anyone has any specific questions you’d like me to ask someone, please send me a direct tweet as my time connected to the internet will be limited.
Until the next time,
