Have a smokin' good time at Studio Square's inaugural cigar-and-whiskey fest, a four-hour bash that fuses the saloon tradition with a good ol' Southern cookout. Nosh on all-you-can-eat helpings of pulled pork, BBQ chicken and jalapeño corn bread while throwing back Sam Adams beers (Cherry Wheat, Summer Ale, Curious Traveler Shandy) or booze from Chivas, Jameson and Glenlivet. Long Island showman Sal Manzo will serenade the crowd with his Rat Pack–influenced tunes, while Lighters Direct gives away custom cigar cutters. Premium stogie-maker Rocky Patel will also hand out ostrich-skin travel cases packed with four of its high-end smokes.
