On Friday, Drew Estate hosted a grand opening event for its brand new Drew Estate Lounge at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., which is home to the NHL's Florida Panthers. Guests of the new outdoor space at the arena were treated to an open bar, hors d-oeuvres, and Drew Estate's new cigar made exclusively for the new lounge: The Year of the Rat, which is an addition to the brand's Única Serie.
The Montecristo Social Club Social Club Road Show kicked off its member event series in South Florida — first with a dinner and herf at Ft. Lauderdale’s Morton’s Steakhouse, and then with a similar event at Smith & Wollensky in Miami Beach.
At each of those events, at least 50 guests enjoyed the new Romeo Añejo, as well as hors d’oeuvres and a brief seminar led by Altadis’ Larry Palumbo, who offered a primer on to-bacco selection, sorting, and other parts of the cigar making process. A certificate of comple-tion was presented to each guest afterwards.
