Puff’n'sip — still seeing bunnies everywhere..

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

And I LOVE bunnies. Bunnies. Bunnies. Bunnies… I can say that the whole day. But back to the important stuff — It is sunny out. It will be sunny tomorrow too, says WeatherChannel. And I LOVE WeatherChannel. 65 feel like 65. Perfect night for a drink and a cigar.

We start off @ about
5:17 PM @ Chaya Brasserie, 132 The Embarcadero
and continue right @
7:48 @ Cigar Bar and Grill, 850 Montgomery (/Jackson)

See you all there!

Lotsa love,

PSsst: Grant’s on Market is having a cigar tasting event this Thursday, 4/20, 5-8:00 PM. Grant’s is @ 562 Market St./Sutter.

Puff’n'sip — soggy, slippery, and slow…

Puff’n'sip — cold feet no more…

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

I wish. Still dreaming of the seaside here. But, it’s still cold and wet outside. Reminds me of that one November back home when… Actually, every November back home. A stiff drink kept our memories of the seaside, and everything that comes with it, alive. Come join me — it will be just like November back home!

5:23 PM @ Voda, 56 Belden Alley (Pine/Kearny)
and then
7:42 PM @ Cigar bar & Grill, 850 Montgomery (Jackson)

One more thing. And it’s rather important. If you stay up 2 minutes and 3 seconds past 1 AM tonight… you’ll witness
01:02:03 04/05/06 (Thanks, JE, for opening my eyes..)
Magical, aye?

Lotsa love,

Puff’n'sip — Here it is, the first Wednesday of the month

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

Meeting Agenda:Wow… where did the month of Mach go? Here it is, the first Wednesday of the month and it is going to be sunny and 60 degrees today! We will meet at the Mission located in the Crystal Court of the IDS building. About 4:30ish…

It is open topic discussion today.


A couple of weeks ago, several people from both Puff’n'sip chapters were able to get together for the “travel edition” of Puff’n'sip. See if you can spot anyone you know. We had a great time as we were able to recruit new members. Stas: feel free to share the pics with the home chapter.

Housekeeping Items:

1. I have been asked to send out a meeting reminder on calendars. I’ll do this only upon request. Or… you can set your own recurring meeting notice for the 1st Wed of each month. I’ll still continue to send out an email reminder on behalf of the Steering Committee. (Listed in the CC column)

2. If you no longer want to be on this email, please let me know.

Take care,

Sandee Brandt
