05/19 - Business Lunch in Bad Ragaz

Wonderful weather... sunshine and about 20 °C / 68 F in the morning with the tendency to rise even more later during the day...

I arrived at the Grand Hotel Quellenhof in Bad Ragaz around 11.30 am and met Marc outside close to the Salon Davidoff.

It started with an Aperó, the guys served some well-temperatured Champagne and we chatted a bit with the people who arrived now before we moved over to the area where the lunch was served later.

The food was really delicious and the service good as all the times before when I've been there for an event. I'd some very interesting conversations, as always when all those cigar smokers come together, all with different jobs, talkin about their experiences and sometimes findin out that we could come into business with each other.

The appetizer - shrimps and salad

Turkey breast filet with grilled vegetable and potato gratin

A cigar was included in the price for the lunch but I was too unpatient, so I fired up one of my cigars that I brought with me... a 1992 La Corona Corona... a fantastic smoke. It's a pity that they´re gone years back...
