• Cigar Review – Le Pâtissier by Crowned Heads

    Le Pâtissier is the French term for a pastry chef or “the baker” and while that might not excite you, dear reader, it surely gets my expectations riled up because the TNCC absolutely loved the Le Carême cigar (an homage to 19th-century French pastry chef Marie Antoine Carême who...

  • Cigar Review – La Libertad by Villiger

  • Film Review – Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022)

  • Blu-ray Review: Hot Dog… The Movie!

    Late of one winter afternoon I was conversing with TNCC chairman Matthew Cade and lamenting the fact that Hot Dog…The Movie! was no longer available for rental. In fact, I was already well aware of this inconvenience, as it hadn’t been available on any streaming service for some time,...
  • Cigar Review – Grand Apex by Reinado

    The Reinado brand is one that I remember from my early days as a smoker of premium cigars but they had dropped off the radar by the time we started this mad experiment called The Tuesday Night Cigar Club in 2015. Well now Reinado is back in action with...
