1) Time is running out to enter our College Football Bowl Contest. The winner gets three cigars: a La Aroma de Cuba, a Bahia Gold, and a pricey Graycliff Grand Cru.

2) In a Government Accountability Office study released this week, it was revealed that the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control “opened more investigations and imposed more penalties for embargo violations, such as buying Cuban cigars, than for violations of other sanctions, such as those on Iran.” Baltimore Sun columnist Jay Hancock wrote an amusingly sarcastic response to the news on his blog.

3) The Association of Dominican Cigar Manufacturers is throwing the first annual Procigar Festival in Santiago on March 5-7. For just under $600, you can tour factories and tobacco fields, hit up exclusive dinners and parties, and participate in informational seminars. The producers of such brands as Romeo y Julieta, Macanudo, Davidoff, and La Aurora will all be on hand, so book your flight today!
