My Day at Cypress Point

Golf Digest ranks the Top 100 Courses in the World, and #2, repeatedly, is Cypress Point in Carmel, California (Augusta is #3 if that’s any indication). It’s private, with a very small membership, and golf geeks can argue over whether it is the toughest course to get onto in the country, or 2nd, or 3rd, but no one would argue that it’s really, really hard to get an invitation. A few months ago, I was invited to play, and a vacation 18 months overdue was postponed to accommodate the opportunity.

Another trip to London, another stop to the Dunhill Tobacconist at the corner of St. James and Pall Mall. The shop, which opened just a little over a year ago, has a beautiful and somewhat modern humidor and wall of cigar lockers along with a world class selection of cigars. On my last visit, I tried… Read more »

TV? Or not TV? That is the question.

I love conversation. I love reading. And I love TV. I like good comedy, great drama, live sports, and the news. So there are times when I prefer to be kept up-to-the-minute with current events on TV, and there are times when I prefer to be present with company without the distraction of a TV (or, often, multiple TVs).

Celebrating Ian Fleming’s Birthday [PHOTOS]

The Club celebrated Ian Fleming’s 107th birthday this past Saturday night. We did have a guest or two wonder why he was not in attendance, but we suspect it had something to do with him passing away in 1964. To keep the theme fresh each year, we’re working through the movies in chronological order, with last year’s party celebrating Dr. No and this year’s party all about From Russia with Love.

The Cigar Lover’s “Martini”

Sometimes a cigar calls for a drink that keeps you warm: cognac, port, espresso. And on warm days, you might prefer a cigar-friendly drink to keep you cool like a Cuba Libre or a Cigar Lover’s “Martini.” Indeed, at some point in history, a brave soul tried combining cognac and port into a single cocktail. Our recipe:… Read more »

Kentucky Derby Party Recap

The Club held it’s fifth annual Kentucky Derby party on Saturday. To say that members and guests took their responsibility to dress up for the party seriously would be an understatement. So much seersucker, linen, madras, and as one member put it: “hats for days.” The menu featured $5 mint juleps paired with country ham… Read more »
