It’s that time again!!! The 2nd Annual DC Cigar Tweetup is almost upon us featuring a bigger lineup of manufacturers and more opportunities for you, the cigar enthusiast, to get involved.

Our DC Cigar Tweetup is a charitable endeavor that marries our love for fine cigars and excellent spirits with our contacts in the cigar industry to bring you two awesome days of cigar related events in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The highlights of the event are our Friday night charity fundraiser and our Saturday bus crawl featuring Cigar Rights of America (CRA) Great American Cigar Shops in the DC/MD/VA area. This year’s event is scheduled for March 15th & 16th.

Our itinerary:

Friday March 15th, 2-7pm
Drapers Bethesda – Meet and greet event with Oliva Family Cigars. This is our event for those coming into the area where they can sit back, relax and get ready for the evening’s events. Great deals and exclusive Oliva cigars will be available.

Friday March 15th, 8-11pm
Civil Cigar Lounge by Drapers Tobacconist – This is our signature event. Fourteen manufacturers/representatives will be present for an evening of great food, spirits, cigars, and a live auction featuring items from every manufacturer. The great facilities of Civil promise to provide an awesome backdrop for the opportunity to help raise money for two awesome causes! This year we have chosen Autism Speaks and The Angel Joy Memorial Fund as our charitable benefactors. Austism Speaks is an organization that helps to promote austism awareness and is very near & dear to our co-founder, Paul D. Ballard, Sr., who has an autistic son. Angel Joy Thomas was a mother of three children, a 7-year old son and 2-month old twin daughters, who passed away suddenly & unexpectedly after suffering from severe Post-Partum Depression two weeks ago.

Each person attending Friday will receive a custom sling backpack with a cigar from each manufacturer (14 total). Also included will be a special 10-count box of limited edition cigars from a manufacturer that night.
