Once again Diana says, “thanks for a great year” and invites all of her wonderful customers to come by Up Down Tobacco and celebrate National Cigar Lovers’ Week 2001 at her 12th Annual Three Day Free Cigar Party.

Enjoy a complimentary Davidoff cigar, cocktails, jerk chicken wings, and the chance to meet the world’s foremost authority on the cigar industry, Mr. Hendrik Kelner, President of Tabacos Dominicanos S.A.

As an extra special treat, Mr. Kelner, well known as the world’s most expert tobacco blender will be conducting a special cigar tasting seminar each day of the party. This will be a rare opportunity to learn how to truly understand and experience fine hand made cigars from the man personally responsible for the creation of some of the world’s finest cigars. The seminars will be held from 3 to 4PM on Thursday and Saturday and from 4 to 5PM on Friday. Enrolment is limited to 20 students each day, so sign up now to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Also, don’t forget to enter the Butt Contest held each day at O’Brien's Restaurant & Bar where the longest ash wins! Enter any time between 2 & 5 PM. Each contestant receives a free Zippo lighter. The three biggest ashes from each day return to compete in the Butt Contest Finalist Competition, Saturday night 6 PM. Sponsored by Zippo & Diana Silvius Cigars.
