Imagine a birthday party where all the guests are treated to 23 cigars and a five-course Italian meal, some of the top cigar manufacturers are in attendance, the Rat Pack provides the entertainment, and one lucky person receives 10,000 gallons of gas.
It's not a party in aficionado's heaven—it's the Two Guys Smoke Shop 23rd anniversary celebration.
The New Hampshire cigar chain is going all out this year, giving away $10 gas cards with the purchase of selected boxes of cigars and throwing a gala party on November 19.
Sorry: Frank, Sammy and Dino won't actually be there, but a Rat Pack tribute group will perform. The cigar stars, however, are authentic. Guests will be able to mingle with Avo Uvezian, Jorge Padrón, Michael and Joe Chiusano of Cusano Cigars and other cigar notables. The evening will conclude with one guest receiving a tanker-ful of gas.
"We're going over the top this time because we want to show our customers how much we really love them and that we want to help them deal with the high price of gasoline while they enjoy our handmade cigars," said David Garofalo, founder of Two Guys.
The cigar shop chain has treated customers in the past with Harley-Davidson motorcycles, a Hummer H2 and all-expense-paid trips to cigar factories in the Dominican Republic. But this time it decided to help alleviate the pain at the pump. Garofalo figures 10,000 gallons of gas is enough to supply the average driver for 12 years.
The Two Guys Smoke Shop 23rd anniversary celebration will be held at DiBurro's Function Facility in Ward Hill, Massachusetts. Tickets for the event are $200.
