Cigars should be held between the index finger and thumb, the same way one holds the arm of a teacup or one end of a quail's wishbone. Practice the proper grip with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of cigars at Embassy Cigars. Choose between two locations, in Brea and Anaheim Hills.
At Embassy Cigars, knowledgeable stogie scholars pair visitors with selections from the more than 200 high-quality cigar brands. Sink into a plush chair in the lounge, eye a flat-screen TV, and sip complimentary coffee as you puff a Cohiba Red Dot Crystal Tubos Corona ($18.95) or breathe in the powerful aromas of an Ashton Classic Magnum ($11). The roster of sophisticated smokables continues with Montecristo #2 ($16.95) and Macanudo Hyde Park Café ($9.95), which both provide excellent means for practicing smoke rings or showing off by blowing smoke Möbius strips. Embassy Cigars also stocks humidors, cigar cutters, lighters, and other accessories that aid in making plumes.
