Cigars, BBQ & Music: It can only mean it’s time for CATS FEST!

By Tommy Zman Zarzecki

What started out as kind of a dream for event organizer, Storm Boen, has become a smoky reality as CATS FEST III kicks off this Memorial Day Weekend. Beautiful San Antonio, Texas is the place as May 22, 23 & 24 marks three straight days of pure unadulterated cigar loving, food devouring, music jamming mayhem.

Yours truly, Tommy Zman and fellow Cigar Advisor editor/writer Gary Korb will be handing out premium cigar happiness supplied by the good people at Famous Smoke Shop. Other cigar dignitaries attending will be Jonathan Drew and the Drew Estate boys, Joya de Nicaragua, Padron, Asylum, XIKAR, Espinosa, Miami Cigars, Villiger and many more!

 

As for the festivities, Friday night kicks things off with a VIP Dinner. Then Saturday brings us to the Tejas Rodeo Company for a plethora of awesomeness with cigars and swag for everyone, alcohol sampling, the great beard competition, raffles every 45 minutes, live music all day, and the Cigars for Warriors Rodeo. CFW is the official charity of the CATS organization whose mission is collecting and dispersing premium cigars and accessories to American Service Men and Women serving in combat zones and on long term deployments OCONUS in 3rd world environments and other appropriate Areas of Operation.

Tommy Zman, is an obsessive enjoyer of life’s leafy pleasures. Growing up in the bowels of northern New Jersey, parented by an eccentric Polish father and a neurotic Italian mother, what else could this man possibly be other than a humorist? ZMan’s a real throwback to a time when men were kings of the castle and smoking a cigar in public didn’t label you an outcast and a pariah. He’s an old–school down to earth guy - but when it comes to p.c. tyranny and nanny-state legislature, he’ll draw his sword and swing for the fences. Tommy gathered a faithful following as a longtime feature writer at Cigar Magazine, and his testosterone laden FaceBook community, CROMAG NATION™ is truly the last great bastion for Men’s Men.
