If I were ever to move away from the Tampa Bay area, it would be to The Queen City of Charlotte, North Carolina!  In this wonderful metro area there are 2 locations of a really cool concept cigar lounge called Tailored Smoke.  This lounge is like no other in which all patrons are members, not guests.  The membership fee is $10 a year, but it entitles the patrons to a plethora of benefits making it a no-brainer to hop on board. But there is more than just the membership that makes this place special, it is in fact, a tailored experience!  From what you are drinking to what you are smoking is all very specific to your personal tastes.  Most lounges with liquor and cigars have a bartender.  Have you ever heard of a cigartender??  Didn’t think so.  As I write this, Word is telling me that I spelled the word wrong, but actually Word is wrong, because this word does in fact exist, maybe just in the Tarheel State for the time being, but soon I believe it will be said everywhere!  How many times did you say social distancing in 2019?  Exactly!  When the Oxford English Dictionary adopts it, I will have gone on record as saying I knew it first because I know the man behind the madness, Preston Gray.  Preston is the owner and brains behind the concept, and ensures that Tailored Smoke is not just the name of the lounge, but it is the creed, mantra and overall philosophy of the establishment as well!
