Cigar Chicago May Smoker

Smoker Date: Sunday, May 11, 2014


Our next smoker is Sunday, May 11, 2014, 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm at Blue Havana.

It’s Mother’s Day, so bring Mom along and have a cigar with your leather family. Or come and blow off some steam after your visit. Whatever your family dynamic is, we’ll be sharing a smoke and some whisky on Mother’s Day. Come join us.

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.

Introduction to Cigars: Cigars for the Cigar-Curious (again)

Date: Sunday, April 6, 2014


Sunday, April 6, 2014, 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

Are you interested in cigars but are intimidated by the idea of going to a cigar event? Cigar-curious? Just worried you’ll smoke it wrong, will feel awkward, will light the wrong end, that the cigar will make you feel ill? Do you think cigars might be for your but you’re just not sure? Is a little experience all that’s keeping you from trying out a cigar social?

If you said yes to any of those things, then this class is here just for you.

This class will cover the basics of your own cigar handling – how to cut and light a cigar, how to feel at ease holding it, and how you take care of a lit cigar. We’ll talk about how to smoke it (and how not to), and what to look for and enjoy from your cigar. This will be hands-on, and the $5 cost will cover a cigar for you to try out in class. This class will be very informal, open to anyone 18+, and is a great opportunity for anyone who’s interested to give cigars a try. It will run for an hour prior to the Cigar Chicago smoker on April 6th, in a private room at Blue Havana.

If you decide you enjoy it, you are more than welcome to stay for the smoker afterwards.

Please check “I’m Going!” on the event page if you’re planning on attending so we can have an idea of how many cigars to have on hand.
