The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor has just published a new article to their September issue, detailing their five tips for tailgating success, titled “The Party is Everything – the Game is Nothing.

Contributor Harry Hurt III penned the new Cigar Advisor piece, “The Party is Everything – the Game is Nothing.” Written as a “fail-safe five step guide to success,” Hurt provides readers with research and suggestions on how to get the most out of their pre-game party. “Tailgating is one of the most All American of celebrations, but its origins actually trace back even farther than those of cigar smoking. Christopher Columbus is widely credited for ‘discovering’ tobacco on his late 15th Century voyages to the New World, but our tailgating rituals are descended from the harvest festivals of ancient Rome and Greece.” So, by his reasoning, he notes that a good pre-game party is in our DNA.

Hurt cites a two-year long study by Notre Dame cultural anthropology professor John Sherry, who compares tailgating to “picnics organized to watch Civil War battles and to modern day rock concert campouts as a way for civilians to participate vicariously in the team experience and to bond with each other.”

In this guide, Harry discusses designating a driver and arriving early, choosing the right cigars, portable entertainment and grill gear, as well as menu and drink planning strategies – which are based on the home team’s opponent.

“We’ve conducted our own independent study based on interviews with veteran tailgaters and a thorough analysis of that classic in off-the-field literature, ‘John Madden’s Ultimate Tailgating’," says Harry. “Our tips may not be as academically rigorous as the findings of the Notre Dame study, but we hope they’ll help you make your tailgating experience more fun -- and safer -- than ever.”
