They’re great and you can hang out there, some of the older guys do but it’s not a huge lounge and there’s no bar (but you can help yourself to a beer in the fridge).

Pro Tip when you go, ask for the 20th anniversary Opus X they’re behind the counter.

While I was and on/off casual cigar smoker, I've recently made the switch to full time (little over 2 months ago). My current favorite smokes are Arturo Fuente Don Carlos, Ashton VSG, and more recently it seems I love just about every cuban cigar I get my hands on (hoyo, partagas, bolivar, monte, H upman, even quintero so far).
Greetings from Iowa. Don Carlos and VSG are a couple of my favorites, too. Welcome to the board.

I enjoy most cigars on my patio (when it's not windy) where I have added some papasan chairs for long sitting enjoyment. Looking forward to participating in the forum as I keep learning so much.

Welcome from MA. I'll be in Lake Mary next week as, sadly, my mom is in Lake Mary Rehab and will need to be transferred to someplace more equipped with handling her dementia. I'll escape the cold and will get in a few cigars at least.

I just stopped by Ol’ Times yesterday and picked up some really hard to find stuff including the Fuente Anejo Shark No. 77. It’s worth the drive from Lake Mary just for that limited release stick which you only see around the holidays.
I made it to ol times today and grabbed a few smokes including the shark and my 1st opus x. Definitely better prices than corona but the shop is a bit out of my way.

Nice, glad you made it by there. Let us know what you think of the Shark and the Opus X. I really like both of those and we seem to like a lot of the same CC’s.
Just polished off the Opus X and while it was a really good cigar, it is not even one of my favorite AF's I'd rather have a Hemingway at less than half the price or Don Carlos at just over half. These are priced too high and it creates to much expectations I think, but to me it was just a really good medium bodied smoke with exceptionally smooth retro.

NIce I was over in your area last night at Corona lake mary. Do you go there often?
I never go to Corona anymore because their singles prices are dumb, I go to executive for a great place to hang out on the lake or to Casselberry to look over their more appropriately priced singles

Ok I had the anejo today, so after finishing the 4, I don't prefer the opus or the tab, the anejo shark is impressive (great flavor) but I'd still go to my fav Don Carlos for much less $$$ to get my Fuente fix. The Padron on the other hand, I'm looking to get some in stock at a good price.
