You have been working hard all year and you deserve a break.
What better way to unwind than hanging in sunny Florida, with cigars and like-minded brothers and sisters of the leaf. This coming Labor Day weekend, Kennedy Achille, founder of Stogie TV, is planning the biggest cigar event in South Florida. Billed as the Black Smoke Miami, the event will cover 5 full days, culminating in a fabulous rooftop pool party sponsored by Jack Daniels.
The $150.00 VIP tickets include access to all events, drinks, over 20 cigars, swag bag & food.
According to Achille;
This is the first event of its kind. Black Smoke is to celebrate the emergence of Black Cigar Smokers. In addition, the event will be filmed as a documentary called “Black Smoke”. An awards ceremony will take place to recognize those in the industry who made contributions to the community.
Even though the event is being held to honor Black cigar smokers, Achille notes that it is open to all and all are welcome. As part of the event, Stogie TV will be film a short film documentary of this historic event.
