The contributor/manufacturer list is now up to 25! That number does not include local shops either. With them, we're easily up to 30 and there are a few more manufacturers that I have yet to hear from.
Cigar Aficionado has again donated two 2-day tickets to the Las Vegas Big Smoke! As you may remember, Ryan Richardson won the tickets last year. He and his father, Henry, traveled to Las Vegas and enjoyed both nights of the event.
Also attending this year is the upscale portable cigar lounge, Lashes and Mustaches. Some of you may have seen it at an Oliva event last year at the Tobacco Merchant. Take a look at this video on the lounge and be sure to notice at the end of the presentation there's a picture of David and Teresa Brock enjoying the lounge! Below are some pics of the lounge:
Joyce CigarFoxy Larkins, owner, describes the lounge this way:
For me, smoking a cigar is not a pastime, but an experience. I started Lashes & MustASHES to bring the luxury, class and sophistication of my favorite cigar lounges to clients who look to make their next event, party or business retreat truly memorable.
There's nothing quite like the experience of enjoying my favorite cigar, surrounded by plush leathers and wood with music or a sporting event playing in the background. Engaging in conversation with my fellow leaf lovers - while sipping on a glass of rum, cognac or vintage port - is something I hold dear to my heart.
The lounge is available for parties, promotions, etc. We will be able to sample the experience all day during the South Carolina Sit Down! The lounge will be parked in the parking lot adjacent to Hemingways Saloon.
