Like magicians, cigars often vanish with a puff of smoke and have bee known to cause a commotion when appearing at children's birthday parties. Celebrate the birth of the cigar instead with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cigars and pipe tobacco at Allegheny Smokeworks in Blawnox.
Allegheny Smokeworks invites puffers to experience the smoky serenity of an old-fashioned tobacco shop, complete with a plush smoking lounge, custom blending bar, and a stupendous stock of quality smokeables. Current in-stock selections include Rocky Patel's The Edge, a bold cigar that blends notes of espresso and spice as seamlessly as a flamenco-dancing barista ($5.95); the Liga Privada No. 9 wraps together seven different tobaccos ripe with chocolate, pepper, and nut flavors for a satisfying smoke that finishes with a hint of sweetness ($10.95). The Arturo Fuente Double Chateau boasts traces of vanilla and cocoa and––like the most fashionable of pine trees––wears nothing but a cedar sleeve ($5.80), and cigar collectors will be pleased to peruse a selection of hard-to-find stogies from brands such as Padron 1964 and Cuvee Don Pepin.
Inside the dapper lounge, dark leather wingback chairs invite customers to recline while watching the flat-screen TV, conversing with fellow smoking enthusiasts, or conjuring the ghost of Winston Churchill. Stand-alone humidors display the changing variety of limited-edition cylinders, as the pipe-tobacco blending bar encourages the swapping of ratio recipes and the concoction of custom, one-of-a-kind blends.
