What You'll Get
To tuxedoed people, velvet ropes are ordinary white picket fences and champagne fountains are lawn sprinklers. Kick down the fence and drink from the sprinkler with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a six-month membership (a $25 value/month) and $50 gift certificate for drinks and cigars at 8Eightyeight Cigar Merchants in Fullerton (a $200 total value).
The exclusive 8Eightyeight Cigar Merchants lounge combines the elegance of an upscale club with the pizzazz of a contemporary sports bar. The membership included in this Groupon grants access to its leather-trimmed confines as well as entrance to any of the Diamond Crown cigar lounges peppering the country with fragrant smoke-spheres. Stogie savorers can relax on plush cinema chairs in front of a fleet of big-screen TVs, ideal for watching major sporting events or heart-stopping tests of the emergency-alert system. Aiding guests claiming mastery over physics, geometry, and binary red-black color codes, the lounge houses pool and card tables as well. This Groupon also provides patrons with a $50 gift certificate, allowing them to excite esophagi with 28-degree draft beers ($5.50 bottles, $5 well drinks) and beautifully blended cocktails. Cigar aficionados can also mesmerize taste buds with succulent tobacco sticks from brands such as Fuente, Padrón, Graycliff, and more ($8–$51 each) or practice crafting the perfect origami crane.
