(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – Tabacalera El Artista and David Ortiz announce the first date of 2018 in their “Smoke with a Legend” event series. Smoke with a Legend features David Ortiz and his namesake cigar brand, Big Papi by David Ortiz. This year’s season opener is set to occur at the Cigars International Bethlehem Super-Store on April 7. David Ortiz is scheduled to be on-site for several hours for a box signing and photo opportunity with the first 500 visitors.
“We’re extremely excited to welcome David Ortiz to Cigars International and showcase Big Papi cigars.” says Josh Hannon, Events Manager at Cigars International, “It’s going to be a great event, filled with Insane Deals and typical CI debauchery.”
Cigars International has hosted big personalities from the cigar business in the past, but David Ortiz ranks as one of the biggest celebrities to cross the threshold at the Bethlehem Super-Store.
“We timed the event to align with the first week of the baseball season,” says Kevin Newman of SilverLeaf Strategies, “It’s a great way to kick off the season. We know some folks will be torn between seeing their team play in Boston and meeting Big Papi in person, but true fans will make the right choice.”
Past Smoke with a Legend events include Two Guy’s Cigar Shop, Tobacco Haven, and IPCPR 2017.
