Stogie Guys Friday Sampler XXXIV

9 Mar 2007

In our ongoing effort to make as entertaining and reader-friendly as possible, each Friday we’ll post a selection of quick cigar news and stogie-related snippets. We call ‘em Friday Samplers. Enjoy.

1) Since September, we’ve published a number of stories in the wake of Colorado’s deplorable statewide smoking ban. We told you about Orios – a bar in Durango, Colorado – and how it became the first establishment to be charged with violating the regulation. And we reported how just eight weeks into the ban, many bars had been devastated, losing up to 80 percent of their income. Now, many Colorado bar owners are taking a stand by paying government fines to allow their customers to smoke. The justification? The fines – which range from $200 to $500 and up – are much easier to take for a small business than a significant drop in revenue caused by government-enforced prohibition on smoking.

2) Good news for Stogie Guys in the UK: There could be a permanent 50 percent off sale on premium Cuban smokes in the country as a result of a court ruling in favor of Mastercigars Direct. That company can continue importing Fidel’s hand-rolled sticks, even though it’s not an official importer. Experts say the ruling, if upheld, will open the floodgates for other cigar importers, and cigar prices could drop to half of their current value.

3) Capitalizing on the success of our last event, we’re proud to announce the second DC-area Stogie Guys Smoke Out will be held on Thursday, March 22 at Carpool in Arlington, Virginia. Just like our first, we’ll be playing pool, throwing darts, drinking, and smoking cigars from 6:30 p.m. until whenever. Come on out and get in on the fun.

4) Finally, here’s a great deal we just had to share: 16 premium cigars for just $29.95! And that includes just about every big name in the business: Macanudo, Gurkha, CAO, Partagas, Padron, Punch, Rocky Patel, Arturo Fuente, and more. Just click on the photo to snag yours today.

    By the way…

    the deal in item #4 includes a CAO Gold Maduro, which as far as I can tell is only available through Thompson.
