Cigar Coop Prime Time Special Edition #16 Audio: The La Zona Palooza Post Game Edition

November 15, 2017

A couple of weeks ago, the Prime Time Show did a remote at the second annual Espinosa Cigars' La Zona Palooza 2017 event. On Special Edition #16 Bear and Coop recap this event.  This isn't  your "we woke up and had a hearty breakfast" trip recap. We dive into the uniqueness of the event, why it worked well, and give some personal thoughts.

There is a lot going on as well. We will touch on

  • Cigar Aficionado's App was removed from the Apple Store, but they aren't the only one who have been removed.
  • President Trump's new directives in Cuba are in place, but the regulations have been misreported in some cigar media outlets
  • The new nominee for HHS Secretary.
  • FDA has delayed the ingredient list. Does this matter to cigar enthusiasts?
  • and we remember Phillies great Roy Halladay and Red Sox great Bobby Doerr
