On Sunday, May 2nd, CigarFest held a Pancake Breakfast at Cigars Internationals’ Superstore in Bethlehem, PA. As a bit of background, the CI Superstore is a huge retail outlet run by CI, the sponsors of CigarFest. Smokey Butts and I drove the roughly 50 minutes from CigarFest at the Split Rock Resort, Harmony, PA to the CI Superstore. The store had a number of people already there when we arrived around 10:30 am. We quickly entered the room for the Pancake Breakfast which is a new room built after CigarFest 2009. Inside was a lone CI employee making pancakes for the masses. The best part–he was smoking a cigar while cooking. Free ash in every pancake! No, I’m not complaining; it was pretty cool. We grabbed a couple of pancakes and sat down. Sadly, CigarFest really let down the attendees with this event. Yes, it was billed as a pancake breakfast, but unfortunately, that is pretty much what they had–pancakes, syrup, coffee, and juice. Not much of a breakfast. If you wanted butter with your pancakes like, I don’t know, 100% of America, you were out of luck. Smokey Butts and I enjoyed a nice cigar while eating breakfast, wandered around the CI Superstore for a while, bought a few cigars, and left. This event needs some serious work to make it worthwhile to attend.
