Stogie Guys Friday Sampler LIX

31 Aug 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) Well, there was hope for Houston. Local bar and restaurant owners were seeking an injunction against a senseless citywide smoking ban on grounds that the law “will create an unfair competitive environment for them to operate.” A judge dismissed their case this week and, as a result, America’s fourth-largest city will be smoke-free starting tomorrow.

Nat Sherman Cigar Shop2) Why is moving the contents of a cigar shop only 140 paces away so difficult? As Nat Sherman explains in yesterday’s New York Times, it’s a bit more complicated than simply boxing up the goods and walking them across the street – especially when the owners of your old retail space want you gone for good.

3) Around the Blogs: Keepers of the Flame lights up a Domaine Avo 50. Cigar Beat reviews a La Gloria Serie R. Cigar Monkey puffs on a Toraño Exodus. Cigar Inspector inspects a Griffin Maduro Toro. Velvet Cigar goes with the Oliva Serie O. Cigar Jack torches up a Partagas Black.

4) Deal of the Week: Last week’s deal was out of stock so quickly we replaced it with the “Woodstock Sampler” from Tinderbox. But since many of you may have missed the change, we’re running it again. With nine big name cigars for just $25, it’s a real steal. Get yours here.

    Well, that settles it. I'm never, ever going to Houston…

    …Not like I was planning a trip anyways.
