"Over the last year or so, my taste and knowledge has grown, there are now so many great scotches it is impossible to pick just one. On a golf trip last year a friend of mine from London introduced me to a store "Green Willy", this place…"
"It has been awhile since my last entry and I have enjoyed a many great Scotches since. I have been preparing our business plan for the new venture in Charleston and here is a little sample of what we will be offering.
Aberlour a'bunadh : this…"
Welcome! Have a seat and I'll tell you about myself. First off, introductions, my name is Dave, but you can call me Davy. What i'm about to tell you is basically the sum of who i am. You may find this interesting, or you may not care at all, heck you may not even read it, and as my dear friend Jorge would say "i don't care, i don't even care". Well, here goes. . .i was born in Baltimore and raised in the suberbs in a small town called Pasadena. I have a father of whom i share the same name, a lovely mother named Sue, and my older sister Lisa. I have a nephew Nathan, and niece Becka. I do love my family quite a bit, but i'm not very good at showing it. I have been very lucky in life, falling into a well paying job with a gov't contractor, owning a pretty good house, a few cars, and most importantly having many friends, very good friends at that. I will admit I can be a pain in the ass sometimes, but i try not to be. I'm all about having a good time, partying, hanging out, or just chilling with my buddies. I guess I would have to say i've been blessed. Some blessings earned, some given, but all appreciated. I recently expanded my talents from just drinking beer to actually brewing beer (and then drinking it). With the help of my friend and co-brewmaster Chris, we have put together some pretty tasty beers since we started in January of 2007. We even had a beer release party with 40 gallons of our home brewed beer, representing 6 different flavored styles of beer and they all turned out great. Just ask the drunk people who drank all 350+ bottles! We currently serve this beer in the bar in my basement, called the Rhombus Room (which also has it's own myspace page, look it up). On a side note, our bar came about because we expected frequent visitors, and we wanted to have a place to drink, but we never expected the cult status of the Rhombus Room to get to where it is today. We have shirts, a website, even glasses for the sister company of whom we brew under, Rhombus Brewing Co. Now, not to sound self centered, but more about me. . .I am a graphic artist by trade, doing 3d animation, web design, video editing, image manipulation, etc. I would like to work for a video game design company one day and eventually start my own graphics company, maybe even make a movie or two one day. In the recent years I have developed an appreciation for select cuts of beef, single malt Scotch (preferably from the island of Islay), and fine cigars. Much of this appreciation has been aided and influenced by my good friend Travis. He has educated me in the subject of these finer things in life, and this has only fueled my desire to know all there is to know about all that I enjoy in life. This is what brought me to this website, my desire to learn more of cigars, the people who enjoy them, and hopefully that shared enthusiasm will stem many friendships.
Well, that was merely a glimpse into the story that is my life thus far. If you know me already, then you know the rest of the story, and if you don't know me, i'm always up for having another friend, and once you get to know me, all the pieces will come together and you'll get the full picture. Thank you for your time.
Now let's have a smoke together.
Dude, great pic and a hell a bio. I love micro-micro brews. I get to MD a few times a month but I'm usually down in Solomons Island. Their is a cigar shop at the Tiki Bar down there. Anyway, enjoy the site and all the great people.
