Like an Olympic torch or a wad of supervillain money, a cigar can't be properly enjoyed until lit on fire. Set your smokestacks ablaze with today's Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of cigars and drinks at Central Cigars in St. Petersburg.
The cylinder sculptors at the relaxing Central Cigars hand roll cigars on-site with 100% Cuban seed and 100% long-leaf filler. Connecticut shade wrappers enclose the smooth, mild flavors of the Connecticut Robusto ($7.95) and the Connecticut Toro ($8.95). Sumatra wrappers such as the Sumatra Toro ($8.95) or the Sumatra Torpedo Giant ($11.95) emit meandering smoke trails that pirouette through the air like a jazzercising ghost. Hoarding ashtrays also collect the flecks from a variety of name brands, including Arturo Fuente, Padron, Ashton, and Rocky Patel ($3.95+).
The café’s bartenders pour glasses of wine ($5.95+), juggle a rotating list of craft beers ($2.95+), and refill barstool-standard cocktails ($4.95+) in the comfortable lounge atmosphere. Chairs pepper the outdoor seating area, where patrons can imbibe lungfuls of fresh air or brush off the advances of cigar-bumming Big Dippers.
