Quote of the Day - Fresh air makes me throw up. I can't handle it. I'd rather be around three Denobili cigars blowing in my face all night. - Frank Sinatra

Celts Corral Cigars - California Style

California's smoking ban has wound it's way across the country, with New York enacting a similar ban earlier this year.

Now it's crossed the big pond and is set to go into law in Ireland in January 2004. Not all are happy about it, though.

The Irish Independent newspaper (they couldn't have chosen any other name and gotten away with it), notes that the century-old tradition is about to go up in smoke.

Cigar smoking is something of a national pastime in Ireland, with a significant number of female smokers, too. The venerable JJ Fox has been on Grafton Street in Dublin for 122 years, and even Mr. Fox says he needs an exemption from the ban because "we ourselves have to test the cigars to find out if they are a good or bad vintage."

Especially if you have cigars in your humidor from 1948, as JJ Fox does. For me, I'll stick with my favorite style - Cubana cigars, which I haven't been able to find in the U.S.
