$20 gets $40 Groupon at Velvet Cigar Lounge

Velvet Cigar Lounge

You can’t puff on planes and you can’t light up in the library—today’s Groupon is your last chance to save the rarefied preserve of the endangered cigar consumer.

Velvet Cigar Lounge is one of the few remaining smoking sanctuaries where these gentlemanly creatures can enjoy delicious hand-rolled tubes of tobacco goodness in unharried comfort.

Save the species by taking advantage of today’s deal: $20 gets you $40 worth of the Velvet Cigar Line of Cuban-seeded joy.

As always read the fine print.


cigarBQ is for lovers

cigarBQ 2009


The folks in Sonoma County are herfin' stogies, quaffing Russian River wines and dishing up California cuisine to raise money for the local Y at cigarBQ, May 14-16. 


They'd love to have you join the fun

Executive director Hans Dippel gives E.D.M. the details:

And cigarBQ® is for lovers…

Wine lovers, food lovers, music lovers, fun lovers, and cigar lovers.

We began in 1998 with about 75 attendees, 10 wineries, 1 cigar company, and 2 breweries. This year, we expect another sold out event. We have more than tripled our local and national sponsorships.

Most importantly, we have donated thousands of dollars to local charities with funds raised from ticket sales, and the generosity of all of the suppliers that sponsor the event.

cigarBQ® is a most memorable day filled with friends, fun, frolic, and fantastic.

Those who have been to cigarBQ® know, and we’ll see you there. Those who have yet to experience the event, man, you are in for an incredible time.
