A cigar is a sign of opulence, like a toilet full of diamonds or a topiary garden full of toilets full of diamonds. Live the good life with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a cigar-lounge membership package at 8Eightyeight Cigar Merchants (a $115 total value) in Fullerton. The package includes the following:
- $40 worth of cigars and drinks

- Access to all upcoming cigar or alcohol tasting events
8Eightyeight Cigar Merchants caters to fans of fine smokeables with top-brand stogies, tasty scotch and draft beers, and a comfortable lounge a-tingle with camaraderie. Craftsman-quality cigars ($8–$51 each) from brands such as Hoya de Monterrey, Padron, Fuente, and Diamond Crown fill rooms with smoky aromas that put puny cigarettes and adolescent dragons to shame. Frothy draft beers fuel friendly rivalries during broadcasted sporting events, and tasty glasses of single-malt scotch ($9–$30) captivate palates with rich, peaty flavor. In addition to smoking the finest bundles of burning leaves, buyers of today’s deal get three months of membership to the opulent cigar lounge, as well as access to all upcoming tasting events, such as the Graycliff Cigar Tasting on November 9, the Glenfiddich Scotch Tasting on November 30, and the annual Christmas party on December 14.
The welcoming lounge space cultivates an atmosphere that’s both classic and contemporary, combining the modern entertainment and comfortable amenities of a sports bar with the old-school charm of dad’s work shed. Flat-screen TVs broadcast football, boxing, and more as guests lounge in the leathery comfort of easy chairs lined in front of the dark, varnished bar.
