Fragrant smoke drifts through the air inside Tinder Box, a tobacconist and smoking lounge that stocks pipes, custom-blended tobacco, smoking accessories, and hundreds of cigars. Visitors can puff away at stogies crafted by makers such as Baccarat and Padron, sip espresso, or watch a 50-inch HDTV while relaxing in leather armchairs. The shop also hosts tasting events and classes, where connoisseurs introduce a wide spectrum of tobaccos and educate groups on such topics as how to properly store cigars or how to write their names with smoke rings.
