Suggestion for an Obsessive?

I recently discovered the Obsessive video pieces. What wonderful work is being done there to highlight passion and joy in people. Never fails to bring a smile to my face when viewing one.

Who would I contact to suggest a person for an Obsessive video? There is a man (Pete Johnson) who decided to create his own cigar line (Tatuaje) in 2002, and whose dedication and personality have created an amazing success story (Reported in Cigar Aficionado as The Hottest Cigar Line in 2009). His passion is evident in what he does and contagious when one spends time with him.

I feel he would be a great candidate for a fantastic Obsessive.

Red Vines Tubs available in N.O.?

Tried the two in the N.O. area, and they don't carry it.

Thanks for the idea though!

The Red Vines rep called and said that they don't really go for red licorice in that area, so they don't distribute. He suggested I call Sams.

Called Sams, no dice. Called Rouses and Lengenstein's, no dice.

I guess I'm packin' Red Vines.

Well, I called Walmart, Target, and Walgreens. No luck. They do have Red Vines, just not the tubs.

Red Vines Tubs available in N.O.?

Hi!

I'm coming into town for a week for the IPCPR (cigar show) and we tend to get four or five tubs or Red Vines for every show. I'm hoping I don't have to pack them, and can just buy them when we get into town.

Does anyone know if they available for sale in N.O? I tried calling the listed Sales Representative:

but she pawned me off on someone else who didn't answer the phone.

Thanks!
