Want to smoke your cigars hassle-free? You've come to the right place
But what if there was a place you could smoke that was worth driving a few extra miles to get to? Or what if you were planning a trip to a particular city and wanted to know what establishments permitted cigar smoking?
Enter CigarPlaces.com, your online guide to cigar-friendly places to smoke.
I learned about CigarPlaces.com a few days ago when I received an email from a young gentleman named Chris who came up with the idea.
"I've been feeling the pain of having fewer and fewer places to have a cigar, even in Michigan," wrote Chris. "So I decided to use what I know about the web to try to make it easier for people to find a place to enjoy a cigar."
Chris created an interactive map that lets you easily search for a cigar-friendly locale, not just in the U.S., but anywhere in the world. You can search the list alphabetically, or simply type in a city & state or country. Plus, the site allows users to add places they know of that permit cigar smoking. (Of course, I couldn't resist adding the Famous Smoke Shop Retail Store in Easton, PA.)
"I created CigarPlaces.com not just because I believe strongly in our right to do something that we enjoy, but also because cigar lounges, cigar bars, and cigar-friendly restaurants are difficult to search for," added Chris. "And because of the way search engines work, searching on the words "cigar lounge" on a site like Google Maps, does not return very extensive results."
Since its debut, the site has been very well-received. 46 locations were added on second day alone. If you'd like to add a cigar-friendly restaurant, lounge, store, casino, you-name-it, visit CigarPlaces.com and let the world know.
After all, as "brothers of the leaf" it's our duty to help each other out.
