Cigar night with Ted Bogers. In March we wrote about the event, and now we know more details. The theme of the night is ‘My Father Cigars #1’. The event will take place at Restaurant Le Barrage in the town of Alblasserdam. That is a little south from Rotterdam.

Tickets are available for 35 euro. There are still a limited number of tickets left. Tickets are ordered per e-mail or in the shop.

What’s included?

Included in the tickets are some food, a few drinks, and live music. Dutch cigar roller Ria Bos will be there to demonstrate her skills. And then as icing on the cake, three cigars will be smoked. Those are the three best-rated cigars from My Father. 

Those are the Flor de Las Antillas Toro. This cigar was the Cigar Aficionado #1 cigar of 2012. The My Father Le Bijou 1922 Torpedo. That cigar was Cigar Aficionados #1 of the year 2015. The final cigar is the #1 of Cigar Aficionado’s list of 2017. That’s the My Father The Judge Robusto. It promises to be a great cigar night with Ted Bogers

Ted Bogers

Ted Bogers is second generation tobacco retailer. His parents started the shop 65 years ago. Bogers recently sold the shop to Sasja van Horssen. The shop will be completely renovated this summer as we reported earlier. Bogers won’t retire though, he accepted a role as shop-manager for a few days a week. The shop will be renamed to Van Dalen Cigars Dordrecht. With that, it will be part of the Van Dalen family. Those include Van Dalen Rotterdam, Van Dalen Den Bosch and the flagship store Cigaragua. With the sale, Bogers ensured that the shop his parents opened will continue to be a specialized cigar shop in the future. With no successors interested in taking over the family business, this felt like the right move Bogers said.
