Cigar Chicago June Cigar Chicago says farewell to Blue Havana

Smoker Date: Sunday, June 15, 2014

Our next smoker is Sunday, June 15, 2014, 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm at Blue Havana.

This is a very special Cigar Chicago smoker, as we say farewell to the welcoming nest that was Cigar Chicago’s first home.

When I started this smoker nearly two years ago, Blue Havana (and our friend and wonderful connection there, Todd/[Smokinchgo][]) welcomed us and gave us a place to grow a new, relaxed kinky social event. They’ve been wonderful to us, but sadly, Blue Havana is being forced to close down that location this summer (the humidor will be rebuilt next door inside The Alley, but we can’t smoke there). Cigar Chicago is going to have to find a new home.

That search is underway, and just like in June of 2012, I’m going to be spending some of my early summer trekking around Chicago checking out spots for a new home for us. Cigar Chicago will go on – but sadly, not with Blue Havana. Keep an eye here through the summer; we may try out different places for a while until we find the right one.

But first, let’s celebrate our first home. Come join us in June for a smoker, a cigar, some good times, and help us bid farewell to Blue Havana.

*(Also, if you’re looking to stock up on cigars or accessories, I would imagine everything not nailed down will be on sale, so it’ll be a good time to do that. FWIW.)*

Now your regular post:

Kick back with a cigar or two and cigar camaraderie with other kinky cigar lovers. As always, we’re taking over the shop after hours, so it’s just us.

We’re BYOB, so feel free bring your favorite whisky or other spirit and share the love with your friends; who knows, you might just find a new favorite for your bar, too. Or bring some chocolate… but mostly bring yourself.

Patronize Our Host Shop
Like a munch, Cigar Chicago smokers are free to attend, but show the shop we appreciate them letting us use their space and patronize them: they have a fantastic humidor, so buy a cigar. Or two. Or accessories. Or something. (To make it easier, Blue Havana is now extending Cigar Chicago 10% off things purchased during the smoker.)

Who is Welcome
All genders, ages, experience levels, races, shoe sizes, sexual orientations and preferences, partnership status, poly, D/s, M/s, height, eye color, religions, pet preferences, fitness levels, tax brackets, and pizza topping choices are welcome (even all veggie pizza, if that’s your thing; your pizza is not my pizza, and that’s OK).

Bottom line: if you think this sounds interesting, then yes, it is for you. While couples and groupings are always encouraged to come together (hey, isn’t that always nice?), it’s not a requirement to have a partner to come.

Here’s the event page on FetLife if you want to go tell the world you’re going:

Questions, please feel free to ask. I look forward to seeing you there.


Note that since Chicago requires anyone entering a tobacco shop to be 18 or up, and drinking requires you to be 21 or up, please plan on showing a state-issued ID if asked to do so.
