Feb 3, 2014 |  by  |  Event, Music

The days that you could just shout out your main act, kick back and watch your event sell itself are over. People want more than just an awesome lineup, they need a revolution.

Last Thursday was a special day for Amsterdam’s cigar connoisseurs. The city’s first, and the country’s second La Casa del Habano opened in the Conservatorium Hotel, a slightly luxurious spot in the Museum Quarter. Not quite the place one accidentally runs into, but then again; all the more reason to pay a visit. Thinking of cigars, the first thing that comes to my mind is middle-aged distinguished men in thick smoke clouds. So, I decided to check out the stereotypes. (..more)
