Our Guests

Eric Dominguez

The Wildcard

Eric has had just about every job in tech that you could imagine, from the warehouse to the executive boardroom, during his long career in technology. As the Director of Technology for ServerCentral, he sees every kind of technology problem imaginable from his clients and then helps them unravel the mess made by the other guys. Probably the funniest person we know, his episodes on the show are some of our favorite; we know you’ll enjoy them as well.

Episodes

Jason Wilcynski

The Straight Man

Jason is the quintessential Straight Man to your Wise Guy, the Abbott to your Costello, the Felix to your Oscar, the Dean Martin to your Jerry Lewis, and the Bob Newhart to a telephone. Besides a near total lack of knowledge of good 80s and 90s music or pop culture, Jason is one of the most solid dudes we know. He introduced Joe to the wonder that is Biggs Mansion, and all he got in return were countless nights sent home smelling of cigar smoke only to be scolded by his wife. Jason had a long stint in the liquor and wine business at the beginning of his career, but we’re bringing him ever closer to the smoky side of the room with every episode that features his dry wit and quick comebacks.

Episodes

Cookie Dai

The Gambler

Originally from Wenzhou, China, Cookie came to the United States in 2012 to study Finance at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. He and Joe met there, were married two years later, and he’s been corrupted ever since by good drink, fine cigars, and the American life. Maybe a small addiction to scratch-off lottery tickets, as well. Maybe…

Jon Kowalski

The Good Doctor

Jon only used to smoke cheap cigars on bachelor parties and the like. That was until Joe and Cookie introduced him to the world of finer tobacco. Since then, he’s been fortunate enough to be their guest at the incomparable Biggs Mansion. Although he’s a more thoroughly practiced beer drinker, Jon has recently grown a deeper appreciation for the barrel-aged spirits. He’s ready to take the red pill and learn just how remarkable the world of pairing cigars with bourbon can be.
