Cigar Chicago Smoker April – postponed

CHICAGO – It is with deep deep regret that I have to inform everyone that we have to postpone the smoker. I know… I know. Believe me I know.

We were coming in to the shop before they were open this time (that’s why it was BYOC), as a private event. They got their license from the city faster than we’d thought, and while the good news is the shop is now open, the bad news is the city works piece by piece, and they don’t have their occupancy permit for the lounge space yet. There’s no place to smoke there until that permit is in.

It’s not a big deal; that should come along in the next few weeks, the owner is going to let me know the moment they have the permit, and we’re going to pick a Sunday night to go back and have the official smoker, expanded humidor and all. But we’ve unfortunately landed in the awkward middle space between a private space, and a newly licensed but not completely open space, and we now have to wait.

Don’t worry. We’ll be back on shortly and for the foreseeable future, and spring and summer are going to be a blast.

In the meantime, if you’re looking to get your boots done, the LRA has revived their munch/bootblacking night, and you might want to check them out

Keep an eye here – more news as it happens. See you all soon.
