The following is a live event being hosted by our partner J.C. Newman Cigar Company

Stanford J. Newman was legend in the cigar industry. Stanford was the son of J.C. Newman and was one of the original inductees into Cigar Aficionado’s Cigar Hall of Fame.

On June 12, we are honoring Stanford on what would have been his 103rd birthday. For the second year, his son Eric Newman, and grandson, Drew Newman, will be going LIVE on Facebook from our historic cigar factory in Tampa, Florida and will be smoking the cigar which represents Stanford’s incredible legacy, Diamond Crown.

We are encouraging cigar smokers, cigar lovers, and history buffs alike to join us in lighting up their favorite Diamond Crown cigar and tuning into our show at 6:00 p.m. Eastern, where Eric, Bobby, and Drew will be discussing some of their favorite memories about Stanford’s incredible life.

You’ll also be able to ask questions of Eric and Drew, and connect with fellow cigar lovers at your local Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge.

Visit our website for the Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge closest to you that will be hosting a watch party and to learn how to win prizes during the Facebook live!

Following the J.C. Newman Cigar Company broadcast, Will Cooper will provide some additional commentary on his solo “Prime Cuts” Podcast hosted on the Cigar Coop page of Facebook later that evening.
