Cigar Smoker's Rights Hub

Press Clippings  |  Krystal here on behalf of Famous Smoke! We recently published our Cigar Smoker’s Rights Hub and I wanted to reach out to you to see if you might be interested in taking a look at it? The hub is an interactive tool that takes a deep dive into all things related to cigar smoker rights and legislation.We have exhausted our research and industry knowledge to bring you the best and most important news regarding recent FDA changes, consumer impact and what the future of cigars may look like. You can check the guide out here: http://fda.famous-smoke.com and our press release here: http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/top-premium-cigar-retailer-launches-cigar-smokers-rights-guide-2206383.htm We've been promoting the tool heavily across our social channels as well as to our large opt-in email subscriber list. I wanted to reach out to ask whether you might be open to sharing the guide or even our press release about the hub on your site? As part of these efforts, we would heavily promote anything we publish on your site and share across our social media. Our aim here would be to help drive traffic to our partners' sites while simultaneously building awareness of the hub. Is this something you might be open to? I really hope that we can work together on this, we would love to share this with your community! Cheers, Krystal Prior Digital PR Specialist

THE METRO 2017 Schedule

If you're new to The Metropolitan Society, our dinners are held the first Wednesday of every month, unless we find ourselves too closely bumping up against a holiday. Our dinners feature a cigar at the door as you check in, cigars from the 'Cigar Stars' who appear at our famous monthly dinners and a great full-course dinner, courtesy of the famous Brownstone restuarant.

2017 features some new products to The Metro, along with some of the legendary brands in the industry. We're kicking off the year with Manolo Estate Cigars, fresh off of a triumphant October 2015 Pig Roast appearance. And, from that point on, we'll just keep marching out some of the giants in the business.

You can view our schedule on our 'events' page on this website. And, if you click on the 'calendar' link at the bottom of the events page, it'll take you to our calendar grid, from which you can click 'RSVP' links to reserve your seat at every dinner.

YOU'VE GOT TO EXPERIENCE THE NEW METRO SOCIETY

We've gone end-to-end and renovated, redecorated and improved the 'best cigar club in the world.' Come on down and experience the comfortable, rich leather chairs, the tasteful colors and bright clean lighting. Of course, we still maintain all of the other great amenities, which include end-to-end WiFi and televisions in our three main rooms. If you haven't been to the club since the latter part of August, you haven't seen the new look. You've just got to come down.

OUR TERRIFIC NETWORK OF METROPOLITAN SOCIETY 'RECIPROCAL' CLUBS!

Our newly expanded network of private cigar clubs is now up on our website for your reference. As you may know, your membership at The Metropolitan Society means you have membership privileges in prestigious clubs around the country, from San Francisco, to Austin to Charlotte to Jacksonville to Scottsdale. Simply go to our Affiliates “Affiliates” page or click below to take a tour of some very prestigious cigar addresses. And, that roster will only grow larger in the months ahead! We look forward to seeing you soon at The Metro -- or maybe one of more than 15 clubs around the nation. It’s no surprise that we’ve been called the "Best Cigar Club in the World!" And, effective with our September 2015, the Lehigh Valley Cigar Club will be part of the network. We're happy that they're joining the network. Here's their website: http://lvcigarclub.com/

Another great feature we’re providing to you is the ability to let your fellow members know what you do, if you so choose.

YOU'VE GOT TO EXPERIENCE THE NEW METRO SOCITY

We've gone end-to-end and renovated, redecorated and improved the 'best cigar club in the world.'

OUR ROCK SOLID 2015 DINNER LINEUP

If you're new to our club, our dinners are held the first Wednesday of every month, unless we find ourselves too closely bumping up against a holiday. Our dinners feature a cigar at the door as you check in, cigars from the 'Cigar Stars' who appear at our famous monthly dinners and a great full-course dinner, courtesy of the famous Brownstone restuarant.

For October, it's our longtime friends from JR Cigar visiting. JR features different cigars with each visit and also runs fantastic 'event specials' right here at the club. It's a traditional October when JR is in the house. Please join us for the fun. Members are $60 and guests are $70.

Perdomo Cigars are back for November. Our friends at Perdomo feature almost too many brands to mention, including The Anniversaries, 12 Year Vintage, Habano, Edicion De Silvio, The Grand Cru, the Lot 23 and the list goes on. When it's November, it's Perdomo at The Metro! Members are $60 and guests are $70.

Our December Holiday Gala is an absolute must! At our Holiday Gala, you'll get an additional cigar at the door and, as is our tradition, it's General Cigar, maker of Partagas, Macanudo, La Gloria Cubana, CAO, Punch, Bolivar, Don Tomas, Plasencia and more! General is a giant in the industry and a great, longtime friend of The Metro -- and they do our dinners in a big way! Then, we will have an expanded menu selection, including carving station and, as has been our tradition as a supporter of our military heroes, we host a table of Marines, to say 'thank you' for their service in our own small way. The December Holiday Gala will sell out and we will NOT be able to admit more than our fire codes allow. So, please RSVP early to reserve your spot and join us.
