Jason force-feeds Tony a pair of martinis — one made with Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice gin and the other with Roku Gin from the Suntory distillery in Japan. Turns out, he liked one and hated one. Then, we talk about good conduct regarding cigars, alcohol and smartphones while you’re at the casino.
We start with a few etiquette points about casino chips at the craps and blackjack tables before diving into a pair of cigar reviews—Tony’s Nestor Mirando Collection Special Selection and Jason’s Romeo 505. We offer some advice about the care and maintenance of butane torches, then sip a tasty Spring Fling cocktail while riffing about home artisanal distilling.
Get through your early-summer “meh!” thorough us, as Jason and Tony are neither happy nor sad with the Dragon Lady doppelbock from Lithuania and the Raices cigar from Alec Bradley. We liven it up a bit, though, with a refresher about tipping at the casino and some etiquette points for joining a new-to-you table game.
Tony introduces the concept of “risk of ruin” as part of casino bankroll strategy, then the Dynamic Duo riff briefly about Macanudo’s Café line of cigars. Then Jason and Tony relate some basic bar wisdom — things that your bartender won’t tell you.
