The Original Cigar & Bar of New Hampshire’s North Conway

I’m not quite sure why it’s called the Original Cigar & Bar, but I do know that it is a pleasant relief from traffic on highway 16.  North Conway is a tourist town on the western edge of Mount Washington and this place sits on the town’s northern edge.  Traffic on the weekend can get heavy, and I mean stop and go for miles, like fifteen of them.

The Original Cigar & Bar was like an oasis.  The staff was friendly, the beer was icy cold and from local breweries, and the cigar selection was grade A.  The humidification system kept all the sticks perfectly preserved, and the air purification system made sure the place didn’t resemble a smokehouse for salmon with smoke pouring out of the cracks.  If you want something other than beer they also have a full bar… nice.  They are now a definite stop on my trek whenever I go north.

My name is Roger Paige, aka The Focused Traveler. Periodically I am also known as hey you, yahoo, and dinkus. For the last three years I have claimed the revered title of a Masshole by moving to Massachusetts. Prior to that I lived in Southern California for nearly thirty years. That would be the place where I cut my teeth in the media world’s pacifier called the web. What Exactly Do I Do? I am a time-traveler, a raconteur, lensman, and cinematographer. Well, the time-traveler may be a stretch but I like the term, so it’s staying. Telling stories is my thing. Telling stories along with pictures and video is my even bigger thing. Telling stories on social media platforms about how awesomely amazing brands and their products are by using my stories, photographs and video is my even bigger BIGGER thing. I photograph: food, both static and squirming on the plate, people, places, things, whatchamacallits and thingamajigs. My imagination knows no boundaries.
