[PRIME] Cigar Smoking Meeting (Will need a hand organizing)

edited September 2012 in PAX Prime
Hey guys, I got the go ahead from the original cult-master from East so I'd like to try and have a cigar smokers meeting at Prime. The reason I need help setting this up is because I have NEVER been to Prime, and thus I don't know the lay of the land too well.
I imagine we would meet up on Friday or Saturday after the concerts had let out, or try and weasel in an hour or so for the swilling of scotch whilst we puff on stogies.. Either way, this is just to see who'd be interested in attending.

    Oooooh. I saw the thread for this from East. Was hoping someone might do this for Prime. =)
    Closing time in Seattle is 2am. Smoking inside public places is banned. :(

    Sounds like an outdoor location takeover is required.

    Too bad my house is too far away (well, 20-30 minutes from PAX) because I'd be all up for cigar smoking and scotch consuming. Mmmm...scotch. Had some tonight, in fact. Dalwhinnie and Glenmorangie.

    I will not be 21, but I imagine that some people may want an inside meeting. I was a big fan of the relaxed mood that we had outside after hours. It was a great way to unwind before going to sleep, though we also nearly froze our appendages off.

    If we smoke outside, I would like it to NOT interfere with people who are not interested in being destroyed by smoke though, so a few feet off should be good. At the BCEC we did it at the Welcome Sign, worked for finding people.

    you have no choice but to do an outside meeting. Smoking inside and within 30ft of a door is banned in Seattle (With heavy fine if caught violating).

    You could smoke out front on pike street underneath the WSCC canopy over the street.
    Or over in freeway park. Although freeway park gets kind of sketchy at night.

    Thanks for the heads up, I know some places still have smoking lounges and the like.

    So we WILL have an outdoor meeting then, I imagine the temperature won't be too much of a deterrent though I've heard Seattle likes to rain like a silly bitch.

    An outdoor location or scotch? Not sure you can have both lol.

    I haven't been to Kell's by Pikes Place Market, anyone know if there is a cigar bar down there? The Portland location has one ::swoon::

    Sir, my magical booze powers know no limits. I am the Elminster of alcoholism. I will find a way.

    What about bars with patios? Are those able to be used for smoking & scotch consumption or is Seattle run by fun nazis?

    I shall as ever, bow before your might in these matters.

    Although I've perfected smuggling 750ml bottles in my luggage, because fuck paying Washington state prices for liquor.

    I have access to a staggering array of scotch at a local specialty store, so if we get a group together for this (note: I'm totally down with both the cigars and scotch) I can do my damnedest to get something nice to Seattle w/ me.

    Some allow it, some don't. The ones that allow it aren't very close to the WSCC.

    Id probably stick as close to the convention center as possible for maximum exposure/awesomeness.

    Yeah, I don't particularly want to go trekking into Hipster Mordor just to get a place.

    We welcome ALL smokers. At East someone brought a hookah.

    You may have to go to the casino. :(

  • PayneTraynePayneTrayne Canuck Registered User regular
    Yeah, I would like to have it outdoors maybe 30 feet from the convention center near a landmark of sorts so we're easy to find. Might I also mention that this would be a prime time to brigade some cookies if you're into that sort of thing!

    Can someone contact Tini Biggs? They used to allow it on their patio... I can't think of any place downtown. But it's been a few years since I lived there.

    If we were to do it at a restaurant or something of the like we would be taking time out of PAX as I doubt many are open after the concerts let out. I am NOT against this idea, but it will make it very hard to get a time and date down.

    Hopefully you folks can find a spot that allows both drinking and smoking legally. I may try to make it depending on the night/time.

    If you are interested in the cigar meeting you will more than likely also be interested in the pre-PAX hookah meeting!

    Of course, I'm interested in just doing some cigar meet-ups in the designated smoking area this PAX as well...

    Something as simple as, everyone meet up at 6pm on Saturday or something like that... who knows, maybe someone might have a flask with fresh cool mountain water or Tang in it as well.

  • NicapNicap Registered User new member
    I remember last year. I believe It was the second day of PAX after the convention center closed down for the night and it was dark out. My buddy and I hung out in the park just outside the convention center and smoked a couple of cigars. Its was very pleasant experience. Google Map of the area in 3D

    How is this that for an idea/location/time?

  • PayneTraynePayneTrayne Canuck Registered User regular
    That sounds good to me. I believe that this cigar smokers meet-up might be selling it a bit high. What I want is just a nice large group of people smoking stoagies, we don't need to be refined so the park sounds like a grand ol' idea.

    If I can make it, I will be there with my pipe and a few different pipe tobacco blends.

    Gib, Newsletter etc. So where is this happening then? Because me and the friend who introduced me to pipe smoking may arrive.

  • PayneTraynePayneTrayne Canuck Registered User regular
    It appears there is a park that is not too far from the convention center. So after the concerts let out I imagine that we could follow the sight of the red ends of the stoagies and pipes.

    Oh that's good then I guess, except I get lost everywhere! But I'll make it work. Do we have a time yet? (Also must remember to pack the Corncobs.)

    My vote would be for the Friday post concert. But I know some people don't like to do it that late. So let's open it up to the people?

    me aand my friends from here in canada meet on the steps in front of the convention center on friday and saturday night after everything closes and smoke pipes and cigars and stuff people can also freely join us there

  • Browncoat565Browncoat565 Registered User regular
    so just out of curiosity is this still going to be happening?

  • digitaldimsumdigitaldimsum Registered User regular
    Hi guy. I'm a local Seattlite or whatever you want to call it. I'm not a cigar guy but do like to enjoy one.

    Anyways, if you're looking for a place to do cigar's, I sugges El Gaucho which is on 1st Ave about roughly 5 Seattle blocks from the convention Center.

    http://elgaucho.com/index.html

    They have food, scotch and a cigar room. The cigar room isn't large.

    Going to be honest, the fact that I don't know much about the lay of the land makes it hard to do this.

    I'm suggesting that we meet up outside of the Paramount after the concerts let out, preferably in the park that is attached to the convention center. Just look for the man with a mohawk smoking a cigar.

    I go to El Gaucho in Bellevue sometimes. It's a nice place with good food, but the food is not cheap (happy hour is okay though). The Seattle El Gaucho is a bit of the walk from the convention center and Paramount.

    Also just to warn you, I always go to El Gaucho in a tshirt and jeans (and lately, shorts), and it's fine, but that's the kind of people that usually dine there.

    That is correct, I will not be sporting a mohawk however. I forgot my gel at home. Just follow the bouncing, burning ashen wisps.
