Celebrate Repeal Day!

We will be celebrating tonight at The Humidor Cigar Bar & Lounge in Palm Coast,  beginning at 7:00pm with a ceremonial reading of the 21st Amendment.

The Humidor, located in European 1235349_10152354813937923_271916993_nVillage, is a classic space boasting leather, dark woods, and a fantastic vibe.   Guests are encouraged to dress in the attire of the era (1
0% Discount On EVERYTHING for those dressed for the occasion).    In addition, Anchor Steam Beer will be $2 all day.  Anchor Steam is a pre-prohibition brew from San Francisco.

Wherever you are, I encourage you to celebrate your constitutional right to have a drink.   Cheers!

My Cigar Lounge Adventure is Two Years Old! Celebrate With Me In Palm Coast!

Out with the old, in with the new! (July 2013)

Hard to believe, but it has been TWO YEARS since I joined Ky Ekinci in a new venture.   With literally no cigar experience, I jumped in  to The Humidor with both feet in mid-July 2013.   After a few days of “undercover boss”, I announced to the world that I was actually the new boss.  It was a scary and invigorating time.   Who I am fooling, it is still a little scary.   Not only am I banking on the success of this venture, but I also have four employees who depend (each in different degrees) on the success of this venture for income.  No pressure or anything.   But, I have a great partner and team helping me along the way.

We will be celebrating for three days in Palm Coast this week!  Won’t you join the party?

We’ve greatly expanded the beer selection since Fall of 2013

On Thursday we will be hosting a cigar & wine social featuring Cordoba & Morales handmade cigars.  Our cigar “socials” have become a vital part of the operation as a means of introducing new cigars to our guests and bringing new guests in for the first time.    Read more here and RSVP!

Friday we will be hosting our annual Black Friday In July event.  Great deals and live music from 5pm-10pm.  Don’t miss it!

We continue the celebration on Saturday with great beers from Anderson Valley Brewing.  Love music from Brad Griese 8-11!

Please make plans to come out for one or all of the events later this week.   I want to thank you personally for supporting me, my partners, and my staff for two years!!

Love,

Tiki

PS Also worth noting is the Humidor’s 10 Year Anniversary coming up October 1.   Click over to Facebook for more info about this milestone.
