Join Avo for Dinner and a Cigar
Avo Uvezian's smoke and music tour hits the road this month. This time around, Avo is celebrating his 80th birthday and bringing along a new cigar to commemorate the milestone in a life of great cigars and music.

Davidoff of Geneva, which owns the Avo brand, is introducing the Avo 80th Anniversary Limited Edition cigar with the man himself at a series of dinners throughout the United States. At every event, there will be cocktails, a four-course dinner and six Avo cigars, including an Avo 80th (a 6 by 52 ring gauge belicoso). Avo's jazz trio will perform and a trip for two to the Dominican Republic for the final 80th bash will be raffled off. Boxes of the Avo 80th cigar will be available for sale at every event.

Eight thousand boxes of Avo 80th Anniversary Limited Edition smokes were made and sell for $360 per box.
