In some ways, Maduro is a baby to me, nearly as precious as my newborn daughter. So it was with great pleasure that i attended the Grand Opening last night, and caught up with an old friend, and met lots of new ones.

Ming Thein was one of them, and i discovered that he is a freakishly good photographer. The photos he took of the fun he and his friends had last night certainly do justice to how wonderful it all turned out. Great cigars, lovely drinks, food and all around company of cigar lovers — what more can a good lounge ask for?
