Long Branch Fire Department’s 11th Annual Cigar Dinner

Long Branch Fire Department’s 11th Annual Cigar Dinner

For the fifth time, I photographed the Long Branch Fire Department‘s Cigar Dinner. The dinner was held in a huge tent erected in the parking lot of Rooney’s Oceanfront Restaurant, and it featured a buffet dinner, hand-rolled cigar demonstration, raffles, auctions, and lots of cigar smoking. The evening ended with a fireworks display on the beach.

Sometimes a Cigar Is Just a Cigar

In 2011 I photographed the Long Branch Fire Department’s Fourth Annual Cigar Dinner. I’d have returned every year, but for the next few years the date conflicted with my work photographing Braking AIDS Ride. Luckily, the AIDS ride date changed, and I was able to return to Long Branch. The dinner was held in a huge tent erected in the parking lot of Rooney’s Oceanfront Restaurant, and it featured a buffet dinner, hand-rolled cigar demonstration, raffles, auctions, and lots of cigar smoking. The evening ended with a fireworks display on the beach.
