After a night of heavy drinking at a recent bachelor party, a friend extracted six slender cigars from his breast pocket and told his comrades that they owed it to the groom to end the evening like gentlemen. In the parking lot of their wayward Best Western, the six men puffed and reminisced, their memories and their friendships and the cigars' fragrant smoke happily intertwined. The sun rose, for it was dawn, and the tallest among them remarked, "By god, Tom, these are incredible cigars. Where can I get some of these?" Said Tom, in the glow of the new and glorious morn: "Cigar Cigars of course, Cleveland's Best Cigar Shop three years running."
