Let's Get Lit: Beer, Food and Cigar Pairing Event
I’ve been wanting to do a beer, food and cigar pairing event for some time now and with the help of Joe from Rocco’s Cigar Lounge in downtown San Jose, we were able to make this a reality.

The menu is listed below but is slightly different than what we actually served. Instead of a Rocky Patel Sun Grown, Joe substituted a Punch Imported Sun Grown. And the dessert lacked the cherries and chocolate mint leaf. Other than those two changes, everything else was the same.
