Domino Tournament in Vilnius.

December 17th, 2008 | Posted by Niels Klintø in Friends | Travel - (0 Comments)

I know this is rather scary, but yes! I did join a Domino Tournament on my last trip to Vilnius and in fact I got all the way to the semifinal on my first time playing Domino ever – and I learned how to play just before the tournament started – and NO, I don’t think I got any special Domino talents…  😉

It all started with my friend Domas asking me on Wednesday last week if I wanted to go play at a local Domino Tournament with him..  can you imagine me laughing and checking what they added to his beer?

The whole downstairs of the Domino Bar (yes, they even named the place after Domino) was full with nice people on this Thursday. Here’s a couple playing

Also Domas’ brother Tadas did play in the Domino Tournament – unfortunately he went out rather early – he needs to practice his Domino skills…  😉

Domas showed me how to play Domino on the spot and he did fine, but I guess he left a little out…  he made it to the final whereas I went out in the semifinals….

Anyway great fun playing Domino – I’m pretty sure I’ll be there again next time I’m in Vilnius…  but dont expect me to be practicing hard beforehand…  😉

Cigar-clubbing in Vilnius

September 11th, 2008 | Posted by Niels Klintø in Travel - (0 Comments)

Tuesday evening I went cigar-clubbing in Vilnius with my friend Domas and Jurgio aka George.
Domas and George picked me up for some food at the nice place Rene – Belgium heavy food for men and a couple of their strong beers…  nice, but not something you could do everyday..  the food was delicious, but too fat for everyday…
Afterwards Jurgio suggested that we went to a new cigar club that was about to open, but we could get in anyway, so…  I dont smoke anything, not even a good cigar, but when I heard about a good selection of Calvados and a couple of Single Malts I was rather easy to persuade…
The cigar club was really really nice and the service was competent and servicemindend – situated in the old town of Vilnius it was of course in one of the old house…  so cool!
And George told me that we will also be able to use a room there for a small private poker session…  just between friends..  not bad at all…  need to test it sometimes in he future….

The cigars are being lit by our chef while George is enjoying the nice cellar room we’re in..

And Domas is showing how to enjoy a cigar the gangster style
