What a blast! I just found my favorite cigar shop in the Florida Keys. Island Smoke Shop had a free cigar event tonight. They gave away free samples, free drinks, and prizes every half hour.
While it was a fun event, I’m even more excited to find such a cool cigar store in the Keys. They have a huge humidor stocked with a great variety of cigars, and that’s not even the best part. They are super affordable. For a cheapskate like me, it’s a treat to find a place where you can still find a handmade cigar for under $3. I can tell by the prices on their accessories, that they are really doing their best to give you a great deal.
The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was fun and relaxing. I can’t wait to go back. I’m only disappointed I didn’t find it 3 weeks ago.
