MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
Miami is an international hotspot because of its warm weather, scenic sights, NBA Champion Miami Heat, Art Basel, and also is the cigar capital of the country, so it only makes sense to host a cigar block party extravaganza in Miami in December. Mike's Cigars, distributor and worldwide internet superstore http://www.mikescigars.com, has been a trailblazer in the industry for over 60 years. Adding to their already red hot cigar repertoire, Mike's Cigars will once again host the biggest cigar block party in the world. The South Florida Cigar Extravaganza's main event at Mike's Cigars on Saturday December 14, 2013, will create a weekend for cigar enthusiasts to unite, ignite and bring the heat to Miami.
The last Cigar Extravaganza event brought cigar lovers together from around the country, cigar celebrities, over 50 cigar vendors, Miami’s cigar elite, VIPs, and cigar experts like Gary Manelski of About.com, who covered the event, to mingle over new cigars as well as the classics while getting their smoke on in South Florida style.
This year's Extravanganza is being organized to be even bigger and better. Cigars are an artform with its own culture which will be celebrated in the spirit of Art Basel Miami also in December. The weekend will be loaded with special cigar events, starting with The VIP Pre-event Signature Cigar Dinner on Friday night hosted by one of our sponsors. Continuing straight into the main event the next day and culminating with a great party, amazing prize raffles and more.
