Avo Cigars Come to New York
Planning to be in Manhattan on March 19, 2009? Check out the Avo Companero cigar dinner at De La Concha at 8 PM. The Copmpanero, new this year, is a limited edition product and will be the featured stick of the evening. This and several other cigars will be served with a three-course meal from Manhattan restaurant Rue 57 and an open bar. At $145, this is a pretty good deal (I'm speaking from experience).
The De La Concha in-store cigar dinners began because of New York smoking restrictions. Since restaurants and bars can no longer allow us to light up, this Mid-Town retailer periodically hosts up to 30 guests with a catered meal and a small live band. At each event, a particular brand is featured. Past cigars have included: Ashton, Don Pepin Garcia and Davidoff Millennium.
Tickets are available now at De La Concha.
