Back in August at IPCPR I made my way over to the EP Carrillo booth and I got to sit down with him, his son, his daughter, Ron Melendi the Manager of De La Concha in NYC, as well as the local rep Bob Morrison. Well, being I am friendly with Ron and Bob I decided to sit down on the couches as my feet were killing me from the insane amount of walking I was doing up and down the floor of the convention center.
The story really begins the day before when I walked into a restaurant with the guys from Paradigm, the Three Musketeers from Stogie Review, and Skip aka Chief Hava and his friend. We saw Ernesto and family dining and gave a little wave to them but did not go over to interrupt their family time and meal. Well as we were sitting down and enjoying an alligator appetizer the waiter comes over to inform us “Mr. Carrillo would like to buy you a round of drinks” which was had me blown away because after all I am a fan boy to the extreme.
