Photographer Jim Pollock at LA’s 2nd Street Cigar Lounge & Gallery

 

Do you love art as much as you love cigars? Los Angeles’ 2nd Street Cigar Lounge & Gallery, a regular participant in Downtown LA Art Walk, will be hosting an event featuring photographer (and friend of Cigar Snob) Jim Pollock (jimpollockphotography.com).

You’ve seen Jim’s work in two of our First Cigar Q&A features: Ben Bass (July/August 2014) and Abner Ramírez (November/December 2014). Jim will be displaying some of his “old favorites and new works,” he said.

Correction: An earlier version of this post said that the Feb. 20 event would be part of Downtown LA Artwalk. While Jim Pollock and 2nd Street Cigar Lounge & Gallery are regular participants, this will be a separate event.

 

2014 God of Fire Charity Dinner Los Angeles

 

After a five-year hiatus, this favorite event of celebrity smokers returned. The dinner and auction brought a Hollywood who’s-who together at the Peninsula Beverly Hills to enjoy a meal by Peninsula executive chef David Codney, raising $100,000 for two charities: New Directions for Veterans, which helps homeless L.A. area veterans, and Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, which provides education and health care for impoverished Dominican families. The event honored 2014 God of Fire Man of the Year: actor, producer, writer and director Joe Mantegna, who does work on behalf of military veterans. He shared the role of M.C. with Jim Belushi.
