In the July/August 2009 Cigar Aficionado


Entourage

In the August issue of Cigar Aficionado, we visit the set of HBO's "Entourage," a show about a young actor from Queens who goes to Hollywood to make his career and brings his lifelong friends along for the ride. Other features include an article on what sports management is doing about star athletes who act like prima donnas, a preview of the Top 10 poker faces you're likely to see at the final table of the World Series of Poker, plus a profile of Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy.
