Win a box of Tabacos Baez Serie SF

A bit of information about the cigar (taken from Bonita Smoke Shop):

A flavorful medium bodied cigar made by Don Pepin and honored with the name of the town he was born in. The tasting notes on the Tabacos Baez Serie SF cigars were slight spice with subtle undertones of both cocoa and coffee the Tabacos Baez SF is made with both long (70%) and short filler (30%) and burns like a dream in a lush Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. Pepin has the magic touch and it’s evident in his Tabacos Baez cigars.

And now, how to enter:

Entering is simple. All you have to do is simply post a comment on this post telling us about either a funny drinking experience you’ve had (St. Paddy’s day is all about the booze to some people, and I KNOW a lot of you have some funny stories I can blackmail you with later), a memorable St. Patrick’s Day experience you have had, or simply what you plan to do this St. Patrick’s day.

As an extra bonus, anyone who tweets “Win a lucky box of Tabacos Baez Serie SF from Casas Fumando and @bonitasmokeshop @tonycasas” will have a second bonus entry added to the list! Don’t forget to include the “@tonycasas” portion so that I will be able to track the tweets.

One lucky winner will be selected at random and announced on Thursday, March 11th 2010. I will ship these cigars out as soon as I can get that persons address to that they will be in hand, and available to enjoy this St. Patrick’s day. You must be 18 years or over to participate.

That being said, Let The Games Begin!

    This has never really been a holiday we celebrate; we live a couple hours from Savannah, Georgia and they always dye their river green and they have a river walk around it and lots of downtown eateries, so that is always fun. Be we retire before it gets crazy – we’re old!

    Thanks for the contest Tony and BSS!

    I recall one time getting so drunk after hurling into a Dorm Garbage Can, I stumbled in the girls Dorm Area face planted against the door of a girl who I was totally infatuated fell on my back like a turtle on his shell and proclaimed, “Amy, Can you see me(I swear I was blind)? Amy…I… you….then passed out.

    Funny drinking experience….hmmmm….so many to choose from….About two years ago a bunch of us were boozin all night. First man down passed out on the hardwood floor. We colored his face entirely with a black permanent marker, and then put icy hot under his eyes and nose. Within a few hours he was literally crying and whimpering in his sleep. Woke up in the morning with his eyes and nose burning, went to the bathroom and realized his face was completely black, and wouldn’t wash off. It was Easter morning.

    I took my son to see Floggy Molly on St. Patrick’s Day in Hollywood, CA and after the show, as we left, there was a hardcore gutter punk puking on the curb along with a couple of his friends… My son saw that, turned to me and with much enthusiasm said: “You are the BEST MOM EVER!” 🙂

    WhileI have whiled away a few St. Patty’s days swilling cheap “green” beer (swill), these days I’d rather enjoy a fine cigar and sharing a few Guinness and good times with friends .

    I’ve never been drunk, so I don’t have any funny drinking stories.

    For St. Patty’s… I think I will likely stay in with my wife, smoke a cigar (type to be determined) and drink a Guinness or two.

    SPD is always a big deal here in Dallas, atleast among the Drinking Class. There are two parades, and huge block party that take place the weekend before, and then the day itself is spent at one of the many Irish pubs(or wanna-a-be pubs). I’ve been around some the pubs for many years, so I tend to make the rounds, say hello to friends who are working, and they love to give free drinks to the “regulars.” So it’s a great time to say hi to people I know, and get drunk for free…cannot wait!

    Oh my beloved St. Paddy’s day. (My tradition is to watch The Boondock Saints)

    I don’t drink so that keeps me from being drunk. It however does not keep my friends from being drunk.

    This particular story comes from my freshman year at a Southeastern Conference School. I was getting ready to embark on my first baseball road trip and we were leaving for Phoenix Arizona at 6:30 am on Thursday Morning.

    My roommate and teammate decided he wanted to get good an lit before we left, so he and a couple of other guys proceeded to drinking. I knew he had an early call and I don’t do well on little sleep, so I turned in about 10 I heard him shuffle into the room around 12 and hit the bed, not less than 15 minutes later, I hear a loud commotion and it is my friend (now in the Major Leagues) falling all over the room screaming he had to piss and that he was blind. Actually, it was just dark. When I finally gather myself, I turn on a light to see him standing buck naked, pissing into his closet. I told him to stop and tried to help him by opening the door, but that didn’t do much. He marched right back in and started pissing on his equipment bag.

    I stopped him again and this time walked him to the bathroom. when he made it to a shower I figured that was better than in our room.

    I went back into the common area and waited. I had given up on sleep at this point.

    After watching sportscenter for about 20 minutes, I went to make sure that he hadn’t fallen down or died.

    to my surprise, he had slipped out of the bathroom and was now missing, drunk and naked.

    I went into defcon 3 trying to find him. This required me waking up teammates. I started with the ones that got him drunk, but they weren’t much help, so I went the other way just knocking on doors.

    He was no where to be found. I talked to the person working the desk overnight and he said that he heard somebody leave a few minutes ago, but he wasn’t paying attention to who it was. So, we reviewed the security tape. Sure enough, a tall, skinny, naked man wondered out into the cold Feb. night on campus.

    We all scattered as fast as we could because the coach was not the type of person to appreciate underage drinking and public indecency.

    after an unsuccessful search that required 8 baseball players, 2 high school friends and 1 stoned night dorm attendant, we came to the conclusion that our pal was not going to Arizona any time soon.

    We sat in the common area of the dorm and discussed how we would break this news to our coach. after about 10 minutes of deliberation, we hear a knock on the door. Who else was standing outside? It was our good friend and future MLB all-star.

    He made sure we knew he was locked out because he didn’t take his ID with him.

    I guess he didn’t have any pockets.

    We all stared confused as he wondered back down the hall, still naked, but now he had mud spread randomly on his body.

    I went back to the room only to find him missing again. I got up to tell the guys next door that he was gone, but I found him cuddled up i a twin-size dorm bed with his original drinking buddy.

    They were both on the bus at 5:00 am on the way to the airport, and oddly enough, my friend got the win in his first College start on that Saturday afternoon.

    But, when our coach came into the locker room on Thursday evening after practice, he asked us if something was wrong with the toilets because he smelled piss. He never knew that the toilets were fine, but his ace pitcher just preferred using team issued equipment bags to empty his bladder.

    Well I’ve never been one to go out and get drunk on St. Patrick’s day (or any other day for that matter) so unfortunately I don’t have a funny story. This year it’ll probably just be me at home. I’ll probably pick up some Irish Whisky to enjoy with a cigar.

    My most memorable St Pat’s day experience was when my wife and I were on our make up honeymoon in Denver and forgot it was St Pats day. We were trying to travel cross town to get to some malls and shopping I promised her and got stuck for over 3 hours by the St Patty’s day parade. It ended up being something we had to turn into a positive and watched as the parade went by. It was a story we still tell to this day and remember every St Pat’s day.

    One of the drinking stories the I remember every year during St. Patrick;s days is one that happened during my time at Ohio State. It was during the St. Patrick Day weekend of 1988 (I think) and me a my room mates went to a bar called Timeout on W. Lane Ave.. Everyone was drinking beer, Jim Beam, etc., but I was not seeing any green drinks so I talked to my bartender friend and asked him if he could make me a Pearl Harbor. In 1988 Columbus, no one knew what a Pearl Harbor was since it was mostly a tropical drink ( I’ had seen it back at home in PR and in the USVI). I gave him the recipe: vodka, pineapple juice and Midori, and “voila”, green drink. Me and my room mates started walking around with our drinks and to make the story shorter within 10 or 15 minutes the bar was full of people asking what the drink was and that they wanted one. Inside and hour almost everyone was having green drinks. Thinking back, maybe, I introduced Ohio to Pearl Harbors and Blue Hawaiians (vodka, Blue Curacao, and pineapple juice). Every time I recall that weekend I laugh at the good time people had that night.

    last year my then Fiancée, now wife was sick so I had to go to the local bar by myself. I still managed to get well oiled but was kinda boring. This year her sister is coming to town from cali so all three of us are going out. Lucky for us, we live in the heart of all the excitment in the columbus bar scene so there are lots to choose from.


    ps. I’m english (green card and all) but I can like the Irish for one day a year.

    When I was 14 I got hold of a bottle of rum before school one day, they were removing asbestos insulation from our high school so we shared with the middle school, we went to school from 1-5 PM my freshman year. I got so drunk I didn’t have the sense not to go to school. I fell off the school bus and somehow made it through homeroom. 1st period did me in though, the room started spinning and I hurled on the kid in front of me after which I raised my hand and politely asked “Can I go to the nurse’s office?” I stood up and passed out… next thing I remember they were carting me down the hall in a wheelchair and my dad had to leave work to come pick me up. True story. 🙂

    St. Patty’s Day falls on the last day of my work week!! How lucky for me!! After work it’s Growlers Pub for Scotch Eggs, Guiness (they don’t believe in ruining beer by dying it green), and a few good smokes.

    I woke up one morning after a long night of drinking with friends at my house. We had a bonfire, and many, many bottles of Seagrams 7. I somehow passed out in the neighbors driveway, and awoke to them homking at me so I’d move and they could go to work. I never passed out there again. THANK GOD!!!

    Back in the tender days of my misspent youth I attended a pub crawl in Memphis to celebrate St. Paddys Day.. The night wore on and on and on. Finally I passed out. The next morning I woke up at a buds of mine in the bed of the truck we all went to Memphis in. The only problem was we were in St. Louis. His wife was beating on the side of the truck telling me every one else was inside having breakfast. I cold never live like that again.

    This St. Patricks Day we will be gathering at a local B&M to smoke cigars and drink some beer. I’m sure somebody will bring some green food coloring to make the beer green.

    My friends and I went to a bar in Akron called Infernos because it was Penny Draft Night. .01 cent for a cup of Pabst Blue Ribbon! After drinking a dollars worth I proceed to get into a dance off with some other drunks on the dance floor. Thinking I was totally awesome and the with PBR flowing through my thought process I attempted the “Worm” a move that I usually had no problem doing. Well the PBR decided that my depth perception needed re-calibrated and I whacked my chin on the dance floor. I got up and felt something warm on my chin. Here I had split my chin wide open and my friends had to take me to the emergency room to get stitches! I have a nice scar to remember the night 🙂

    I am friends with several people who have March 17 birthdays so we always go out. Last year we were in an Irish pub an it was elbow to elbow. Luckily our group had a table. Everyone at the table was smoking cigarettes and there was a guy who was even smoking a pipe. So ignoring a “No Cigar Smoking” sign I whipped out a big dark robusto, a Tabacos Baez if I’m not mistaken, I was drinking green Yuengling its kinda foggy. Anyway As I clipped the end and fumbled for my torch A wait person come by and said I couldn’t light that thing. I asked if she was kidding. She wasn’t so I didn’t light it. 5 minutes later I was told again to not light it and every 5 minutes after someone came by and either told me to put it out (wasn’t lit) or to not light it up. I had enough of this and upon leaving I fired it up while paying my bill, which was a dollar more per beer than it should have been. Upon questioning it they pointed to the sign that said Domestic beer $5 Imported $6. I informed them that Yuengling is a domestic beer and they said it was Chinese, an import. True! not too funny just sad. Needless to say no tip was given.

    Story is from my college days. It was St. Paddy’s and I had just recieved my tax refund check – a great thing because I was broke until that point. Went into town, cashed the check in early afternoon. I had a mid term exam in accounting first thing the next morning, so I had planned on geting back to the dorm to study. Instead, I stopped at a place called Mitchel’s Pub, an Irsih-style college pub, for one green beer to celebrate the day! I ran into a friend from high school that was in town for the celebartion. One green beer lead to another, next thing I knew they were offering drink specials – double Swamp Water’s for a buck, which I could not pass up! Needless to say I didn’t get out the place until closing time. At some point on my way home I had fallen down and got mud all over my clothes and jacket.

    The next morning, I crawled out of bed and put on the same clothes I was wearing the night before, not realizing they were full of dirt. I went to the cafeteria to get somehting to eat and study the test material. I then crawled to class to take the test. I got there late, so the only seats open were in the front row. The girl behind me wispered and asked what had happend to me. I said…don’t ask! I was soooooo hung over that I could barely write my name on the test paper. I sat there numb for about 20 minutes, then said the hell with it. I handed the paper in and went back to my dorm to sleep.

    The next day, I went to the prof’s office. I explained what had happended and asked if it was possibile to re-take the test. He explained it was not possible, but said he would take my honesty into consideration for assessing a grade. Even though I had not even attempted to answer one question on the test, when I got the test back, I was given a B. I went to the prof at the end of class to thank him for being considerate given my screw-up. He said the grade was for being honest about what had happened and believed in second chances – he would not be so kind the next time.

    I probably should have stayed with accounting, but I concluded there were more fun things in life than chasing numbers!!

    I’ve only been drunk once in my life, so nothing really interesting there. This St. Patricks Day I hope to get outside and have a nice cigar. Maybe a Candela wrapper in respect to the day. Lol.

    Went out one night with some friends. After calling it a night, it was a bit late and I fell asleep on one of my friend’s couch. I woke up the next morning at around 6:30a, and decided it was time to go.

    I ran into him a day or two later, and told him thanks for letting me crash at his place. He was shocked, and gave me a blank stare – he had no idea I had slept on his couch.

    He said he heard some noise shortly after 6:00a, like someone rustling around his place. But, he figured that someone had broken into his house that morning to rob him, and since he didn’t have anything of value, he just went back to sleep!

    This one time we went out to a party where they kept serving green beer, what they didnt know is that they were putting too much food coloring into the beer. So later in the night their sinks, bathtub and toilet were all green from people getting drunk and sick from the green beer, throwing up and staining everything. Green projectile vomit for St Patty’s Day, best night ever!

    Welll a short story… It was the Saturday before St. Paddies in Chicago doing the Western Walk.. After doing the long walk and drinking we stopped at a fast food joint and ate some food. I went to the bathroom and relieved some overfilling and returned to drink from my soda cup and realized as I gulped it that my bud had been spitting his dip into my cup… Second round of hurling had simultaneous begun and the poor guy at the fast food shopped just looked at me and shook his head in shame…. We ran out and caught a cab….
