Sigmund Freud once said, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar," at which point he mistakenly attempted to light the lollipop dangling from his lower lip. Dig into the psychology of stogies with today's Groupon to Perfecto Cigar Shop & Lounge in Arlington. Choose from the following options:

Helmed by certified retail tobacconist Cher Thornton and cigar enthusiast Matt Thornton, Perfecto Cigar caters to stogie aficionados and casual dabblers. Peruse a panoply of panatelas ($3–$50+) that span the brand spectrum, including cigars from the always-popular Romeo y Julieta ($5+). Meander through the aromatic aisles of tobaccos and accessories, or browse the walk-in Spanish-cedar humidor brimming with more stogies than Groucho Marx’s prop closet. Equipped with a lounging area, Perfecto Cigar is a cozy cabana in which like-minded enthusiasts can gather to kick back and swap tips on creating the perfect smoke ring or smoke square.
On November 5 from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., Perfecto Cigar hosts owners, experts, and master rollers from top cigar manufacturers for the annual Stogie Bash. One Dennis Rodman will be in attendance to introduce his new cigar made by WB Brand Cigars and to teach attendees and reps from manufacturers such as Rocky Patel Cigars and Drew Estate Cigars how to execute a proper cigar box-out. At the culmination of the event, each attendee will receive a bag of cigars and a T-shirt.
