With many of us having to stay at home, we thought it was time for us to step up and step out and make some changes to how we do things so that our show would be more interactive with you and the awesome guys and gals that make up the Twins Smoke Shop community. What we wanted to do was to host a virtual herf (that is a term for people getting together to enjoy a cigar or pipe) where we were all smoking the same thing in a format that allowed you to interact with the tobacconists and bartenders of Twins Smoke Shop and the 7-20-4 Lounge.
This episode is an edited audio recording of that premiere event.
In the first half of the show we smoke the CroMagnon EMH by RoMa Craft. In the second half of the show for our pipe tobacco review, we lit up the just released Carolina Red Flake with Perique from Cornell & Diehl. Since Kendra was not able to make cocktails for all of us since we were all in different locations, we decided to pair each of these with a bourbon of our choice.
This episode had a lot of firsts:
- It was our first recording with a live audience. And we had a lot of great comments from people who were watching and smoking with us including Skip Martin and Kurt Kendall, and a surprise video call from the Lovely Lisa one of the bar tenders from the 7-20-4 Lounge.
2. It was our first video recording of the show. Many of you have asked for that… ask, and you shall receive!
3. It was our first time recording from 5 different locations at once. Pastor Padron, Paul, Nick, Dave, and Kendra used Skype to video call into the podcast using OBS editing suite.
4. It was our first time streaming on Facebook Live. And we found that we were not alone! We had a good number of people online with us and even more have watched it after it was over!
We encourage you to join us each Friday from 7:00-8:30pm EST on our Facebook Page (facebook.com/NJBSpodcast) to be part of the show. The Monday podcast will be an edited version of the live event.
This is the only podcast that brings the wealth of knowledge, expertise, and fun of Twins Smoke Shop, New England’s premiere smoke shop, right to you, wherever you are, whenever you want it. Each week we review a cigar and a pipe tobacco and have each expertly paired with a spirit or cocktail from the bar at our own 7-20-4 Lounge. And that is…Not Just Blowing Smoke!
