Friday and Saturday, August 12 and 13, 2011
Anticipation continues to grow for the first large-scale cigar event to be held in Chattanooga, Tennessee: the 2011 Tweet-Up. The event is being hosted by Burns Tobacconist and the Chattanooga Billiards Club, with two locations in the city; and is being organized and promoted by members of two popular cigar blogs: the Tiki Bar Online and Stogie Review.
The event begins on Friday, August 12, with an afternoon herf at Burns East (110 Jordan Drive, 423-855-5686) before those in attendance that day head to AT&T Field to see the Chattanooga Lookouts Minor League Baseball game (the Lookouts are an affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers). We have reserved a luxury suite for between 20 and 30 people.
Saturday’s mega-herf begins at Burns East at 11:00 a.m. and continues until 6:00 p.m., with plenty of time to chat and mingle and get to know some of the other cigar-lovers that have traveled from all across the country to attend. It’s also a great time to meet and get to talk to our special guests, Jon Huber (Crowned Heads), Matt Booth (Room 101 Cigars), and Frank Herrera (La Caridad del Cobre).
At 6:00, we will leave Burns East and travel to Burns Downtown where we will reassemble at 7:00 p.m. for dinner and a liquor tasting, which we are calling “A Taste of Tennessee.” Featured libations will include Jack Daniels and George Dickel Tennessee Whiskeys.
Two packages will be available for purchase: the Friday/Saturday Package includes attendance to the baseball game, a Chattanooga Tweet-Up T-Shirt, and admission to the Taste of Tennessee Liquor Tasting, as well as a 5-pack of cigars; it will cost $35 (plus tax). The Saturday Package includes the commemorative T-Shirt, the Liquor Tasting, and the cigar 5-pack; it will cost $25 (plus tax). Either of these two packages will also earn the purchaser one raffle ticket.
Excellent deals on cigars will be available throughout the event. All single-stick purchases, up to 19 cigars, will receive a 10% discount; buying 10 singles will also get another raffle ticket. Buying a box or box equivalent (20 cigars or more) will get you a 20% discount and 3 more raffle tickets. Many fine cigar manufacturers are donating cigars and/or door prizes for the raffle (to be held at 5:30 on Saturday). These companies include: Oliva Cigar Company, Drew Estate, La Gloria Cubana, A.J.
Fernandez, Miami Cigar and Company, 262 Cigars, Emilio Cigars, Room 101 Cigars, La Caridad del Cobre, and Toraño Family Cigars.
