Lightbulb New Jersey (NJ) Meetup

Spring Edition.

Spring begins March 20th and ends June 20th. I think we can squeeze another New Jersey meet-up somewhere in there.

Where:
I propose JR Cigar. There are at least two locations in NJ, but I've only been to the one in Whippany and they have a cigar lounge and restaurant/bar area (with another cigar lounge), outdoor seating, and a nice large parking lot where you can usually bring your drinks (I think). I'm family friends with the owners/owners' son, and they used to own two 110s, so I can see if they'll be around (or maybe give out some goodie bags or something) as well.

Here's a good write-up on the place:
http://www.acigarsmoker.com/2012/06/...r-trip-review/

JR Cigar - Whippany
301 Route 10 East, Whippany, NJ
http://www.jrwhippany.com/index.cfm?page=lounge

When? VOTE:
1) March 23
2) March 30
3) April 6
4) April 20

Street View.

If we're talking about meeting up in the afternoon, then I vote either March 23 or 30.

Definitely afternoon.

The place is huge, and has multiple "environments" including a 15,000 or so sq/foot humidified room where they keep the cigars, plus the air is constantly filtered and flowing. Oh, and there are outdoor areas.

Also, I don't want to hear any complaints from you about smoke after I endured the smokiest ride of all time at Winter Romp by following behind you!

Now it's called Easter weekend? I thought it was called Easter Sunday? I figured most people would be around with family that weekend and wanting to get out on Saturday for a little break from it all.

Right. Likes it my fault it was 4 friggin degrees out and the truck couldn't get warm.

Not to mention If you didn't stop for every twig in the trail I would have been able to do something other than idle and maybe get the truck would have warmed up!

I'm tentative for the March dates because the wifey is traveling from the 23-30th. Will see if I can get a babysitter once a date is picked. April dates are good for me.

Oh yea...Being that i am an ex smoker...I too am not wild about hanging at a smoke house. But willing to put up with it for a drink or two.

Would like to make a NJ Meet, it seems that these are always scheduled when I am out of town. I could do March 23rd if its later afternoon or evening, otherwise, April 20 could work.


I also agree with some of the others, could do without the smoke.

If March 23 (next week), I'd love to go. The JR location on 17 in Paramus does not have much parking, not to mention the crazy traffic from the mall goers. Either way, I'm in.
