Last year Brian and I had the opportunity to attend the Cigar Expo at Famous Smoke Shop and we had a great time. So when I received the press release for this years event I knew I wanted to post it here for anyone that does not regularly visit Famous Smoke Shop and would be interested in attending. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
(EASTON, PA) March 10, 2011 — Famous Smoke Shop, the nation’s leading retailer of discount cigars online, has announced that tickets are now on sale for their annual Cigar Expo 2011, which will take place on Friday and Saturday, August 26 and 27 at Famous Smoke Shop’s future headquarters located at 90 Mort Dr. in Easton, Pa. This year’s Expo is called “Cigarnival,” and as the name implies, attendees will experience a carnival-like atmosphere replete with carnival games and performers, all they can eat and drink, plus the world’s leading cigar makers, and plenty of cigars to smoke.
V.I.P tickets cost $250 per person and include at least 40 cigars, an exclusive dinner with the cigar makers on Friday, August 26, early admission to the event at 11:00AM on Saturday, August 27, plus additional complimentary cigars from select vendors. General Admission tickets cost $175 per person and include at least 40 cigars with admission to the event at 2:00PM on Saturday, August 27. The event will accommodate 750 people with only a limited number of V.I.P. tickets available. All attendees will also receive goodie bags upon entering the event.
“We’re especially excited about this year’s event because it’s going to be held at our new location,” said Famous Smoke Shop retail store manager, David Zayas. “Our new store will be a state-of-the-art facility, and will have much more room for people to spread out, too.”
Cigar manufacturers which have already committed to attending include Alec Bradley, Altadis U.S.A., Arturo Fuente, Avo, Camacho, E.P. Carrillo, Cigar Agency, Davidoff, Drew Estate, Flor de Gonzalez, Fonseca, General Cigar, Kristoff, La Flor Dominicana, Rocky Patel, Pinar Del Rio, Tatuaje, and Torano, with many more to come. Also returning this year is Berta Bravo, “The Guayabera Lady,” who will be featuring her exclusive line of original Guayabera shirts and other clothing.
Carnival games and performers will be on-hand to entertain the guests throughout the entire day. Moreover, Drew Estate Cigars will again host the Casino tent; where attendees can play Blackjack, Poker, Roulette, and Craps for ACID cigars and other Drew Estate items.
As Famous has done at their previous Expos, Cigar Expo 2011 Cigarnival will provide plenty of food and drinks (including micro-brews) for all, live entertainment, a DJ, special deals on cigars and accessories in the retail store, and raffle prizes. Because this is a cigar-smoking event, no one under 18 will be admitted, but guests are encouraged to bring their significant others.
