At Cigar Towne sit, relax and rewind unencumbered by time. Turn the cell phone off and dance in the pleasure of a fine cigar.

As a woman I found the following article by a Psychiatrist a bit alluring. He resurrected the Freudian icon and gives it a new twist,

“The good cigar experience is most sensual; the beauty of the well-made cigar appeals to the eye, the firm construction to the touch and the fragrance (one of the most masculine of aromas) to the sense of smell. And a good cigar can appeal to taste as much as a vintage wine.”  (1994 Cigar Aficionado Opinion: A Psychiatrist’s Prescription by Charles Carluccio.)

Sigmund Freud said two things worth while, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and the second if you do not pay you do not get better.” I do not know about number two but at the Cigar Towne a cigar is never just a cigar.

Cigar Towne  hosts monthly events featuring popular and boutique brands of cigars.  The next event will be January 13th, 2011 featuring La Flor Dominicana cigars.

It is located at 1250 Eldridge #100, Houston Texas 77077 Pablano’s offers fresh mexican food prepared when you order. Friendly fast service. Poblano’s is not a chain it is privately owned and operated and you will find the owners there everyday.

“At Poblano´s, the Motto is “fresh and quality food at reasonable prices” and if we do not have any item on the menu that you are looking for, we will gladly prepare it for you.” This is absolutely true! I like my fish tacos in a hard crunchy shell even though it is not on the menu they come to me exactly the way I like them! And for anyone else out there that is a fish taco connoiesseur these guys do them right – fresh and tasty!

Not only do they offer great food and a full bar they also have lot’s of great entertainment including live music and big screen TV’s with sporting events. During the summer you can sit on the patio and enjoy good food and a cool drink. Pablona’s offers a full bar and they know how to make a good margarita which is in my opinion very important to a good mexican restaurant.
