Stogie Guys Friday Sampler CCV

3 Sep 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.

Labor Day Barbecue1) Labor Day is upon us. For all you hard-working Stogie Guys out there, it couldn’t have come soon enough. The entire team would like to wish you and yours a happy, safe, and cigar-filled holiday weekend—a great time to smoke that extra-special cigar you’ve been saving for years. So whether your plans include a barbecue, a beach, golf, or anything else, be sure to make this year memorable with a memorable cigar.

2) Officials in Ocean City have scheduled a hearing to discuss the possibility of a smoking ban for the Maryland town’s beaches. The announcement came just days before the upcoming holiday weekend, a lucrative time when thousands of mid-Atlantic vacationers flock to this popular ocean-side destination. NBC reports that “most businesses are against a ban on smoking, fearing that it may hurt their already struggling businesses.” An outcome isn’t expected until after an October election.

3) Site News: It may have taken awhile, but the cigar community seems to have embraced Twitter as a forum for talking cigars. So we’ve created a new Cigar Tweets page—your one-stop shop for the latest updates from all the cigar makers on Twitter. And don’t forget to follow Stogie Guys, too.

4) Around the Blogs: Smoking Stogie tries an Illusione Singulare. Cigar Inspector inspects a Juan Lopez Short Torpedo. Stogie Review fires up an AVO Heritage. Nice Tight Ash checks out an Art Deco. Perfect Draw reviews the Quesada Tributo.

5) Deal of the Week: With full-bodied spice and Cuban-like depth, Nicaraguan smokes are increasing in popularity, and this Nicaraguan Blends Sampler demonstrates why. Included are two each from Padilla Habano, Man O’ War, Rocky Patel Fusion, and Gurkha Park Avenue, all for under $30. Grab yours here.

    My parents are flying into town this weekend. My dad's not much of a cigar smoker, so I had mine last night sitting on my covered back porch in the rain. Gorgeous night.

    Happy Labor Day, and thanks for the daily updates!

    Have a great labor day… I intend to grill up some steaks and smoke great cigars!

    Cigar Tweets page seems like an awesome idea. Its a great way to collect all the cigar related information without it getting mixed up with personal tweets.
