I was excited when I found out that Binny's was launching an exclusive new premium cigar, the Marca Binny's 1949. But then I heard about the Official Launch Party Binny's is holding to kick off the new cigar. This is an event every cigar fan in Chicago needs to know about.

   What do you have to do to get an invite? Buy a box of Marca Binny's 1949 series cigars, any size.

   To say thank you for supporting the new cigar, Binny's will invite you to the Marca Binny's 1949 Series Official Launch Party on August 20th, from 6:30 to 9:00 pm, at the Fumare Lounge at 305 W. Golf Road in Schaumburg. Attendance is limited to the first 50 customers who buy a box of MB 1949.

   You will meet master blender and industry legend Arsenio Ramos, who will speak on the new cigar and his experiences in the world of tobacco. Bring your MB 1949 box to have it signed by the blender.

   When you arrive you will be given a free five pack of MB 1949 cigars, including one of each size. There will be special discounts on the cigar exclusively for the night of the event. On top of all this, a free drawing will be held for door prizes. And who doesn't like a little swag?

   Basically, Binny's wants to give you the chance to meet a legendary cigar blender, the chance to meet and hang out with other tobacco enthusiasts, get some free stuff and the opportunity to get more cigars at great prices.

   Sounds like a good time to me.
