What is this you ask? A giant non-commercial herf (we're not making any money!) that not only supports two amazing cigar lounges in Chicago, but creates a great opportunity for a ton of us to meet up, smoke cigars, and chat with members of the industry. We will stuff our faces, smoke til our heads explode, and probably drink til we are xXReckonerXx obnoxious.

Friday, September 20th, 2013 5PM-10PM : Tesa Cigar Company
We will be hanging out with over 150 FOTL (Family of the Leaf) and dozens of manufacturers/industry members at the beautiful inner city lounge. Music, raffles, catered dinner, beer sampling, and cigars will line the evening and well into the night. Afterwards whoever is interested will hit the bars in downtown Chicago. Tesa is BYOB.
Saturday, September 21st, 2013 12PM-12AM : Casa de Montecristo
Saturday will be the second day and the longer of the two days. From 12pm til midnight, you will be smoking with some of the best in the industry. The extremely well-stocked humidors at Casa de Montecristo will be at our disposal - filled with very rare and delicious hard to find cigars. The very large VIP lounge will be open, and we will have a Chicago Style catered buffet for everyone. Some time during the event, we will have a rum tasting (pending). Casa de Montecristo is BYOB.
What you receive with your ticket purchase:
- A gift bag with 7-8 cigars (3-4 Cigars at Tesa, 4 Cigars at Casa de Montecristo)
- Dinner at Tesa
- Dinner at Casa de Montecristo
- A raffle ticket for each event (for every $25 you spend at the B&M, you will get additional raffle tickets)
- Access to liquor tastings that we are putting together (21 years of age and up)
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
The minimum age requirement to attend is 18, in order to partake in any of the beer/rum tastings you must be 21.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
TESA is easily accessed via the Green or Pink lines on the CTA. For those that drive street parking is limited your best shot would be in a parking garage.
Casa de Montecristo has plentiful parking and will have a free valet.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
You can bring your own cigars but please be courteous and purchase at least one cigar at each of the venues, they are donating their space for this event and we should repay them buy providing them with our business. Feel free to bring your own cigars to share with other or to smoke, but remain cognizant of the fact that both of our venues exist solely due to cigar sales. Please bring your own cutters/lighters so that there isn't a line of people waiting to use the only 5-10 cutters in the building.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It would be prefered, check in becomes easier for us.
What is the refund policy?
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Yes as long as the person with the name on the ticket is present.
