Battle of the Bands Post Game Ultimate Giveaway

Thank you to everyone who bought and/or promoted the Cigar Coop Battle of the Bands Sampler pack for Smoke Inn. We didn’t expect to win, and didn’t win. At the same time, this was a contest that was a lot of fun. This author learned a lot, and there was some great competition. I was particularly moved every time someone commented that they took the time to buy and enjoy the sampler pack assembled.

That being said, it’s time to give back. I’ve decided to assemble a great sampler pack. It’s open to all. In other words, NO PURCHASE REQUIRED AND EVERYBODY GETS A FAIR SHOT. The giveaway consists of five things and is valued at over $200.00! We’ve got the details here.  CONTEST CLOSES 10/24!
