I've been coming down to Atlanta for the last five Septembers now, and unfortunately have experienced precious little "southern hospitality", during my long weekends here from the locals. Brad (vroomp) turned that on its head in a ridiculously generous fashion on Tuesday night. In addition to taking me out for a barbecue dinner (ribs are so much better down south), he furnished me with one of his Xiphos Habanos for a smoke that evening. He then dropped off a land mine at the front desk of the hotel where I'm staying, and after waiting about 24 hours for the staff to relocate his package (perhaps they were trying to disarm it ) - a loaded Perdomo traveldor - it blew up in my face this morning.
Brad, thanks a lot for a warm welcome. You have been entirely too kind, and I don't know how to repay you!
