Stogie Guys Friday Sampler CLXXXIV

9 Apr 2010

As we have since July 2006, each Friday we’ll post a mixed bag of quick cigar news and other items of interest. We call ‘em Friday Samplers. Enjoy.

Cigar Rights of America1) Cigar Rights of America, a consumer public advocacy group that works to protect the freedoms of cigar enthusiasts, has launched a new discount program. Now members can get discounts at participating hotels, car rental services, theme parks, and cigar shops. These benefits come in addition to members-only cigar samplers and the satisfaction of joining the fight against harmful tobacco taxes and smoking bans.

2) The fate of a New Hampshire cigar tasting event lies in the hands of local politicians. For the past three years, CC&H Framing and Cigars has held an outdoor gathering in Keene. But some, including Councilor Philip M. Jones, want to outlaw the 2010 event, currently slated for August. “I just think it sends a bad message,” Jones told the Keene Sentinel. The City Council has the final say next Thursday.
