And so all the take out coffee places and restaurants are also the devil? They should also close? Oh! Did she send the same message to the liquor store?

Could this be the person who called the liquor commission on us because we’re so busy selling to***co? Or was it someone else?

11-9 today!! And you can smoke in the members’ lounge if you like!* (No beverage service available, but you knew that.)

*No more than ten people in the building, though, so first come, first...sat? Smoking? I’m not sure how this sentence should end, actually.

Remember: We have zero-tolerance of you being an as***le. Saying “I’m just kidding” at the end of your tirade when you were asked to stop several times doesn’t help. Pay your tab and get out. Not coming back? That’s not a threat. That’s a promise, we hope.

In other news, let’s all watch for a one-star review!!

Hey kids, this is NOT MY FAULT. I am following the law. There is no military exemption and no, you being cute with the wording, interpreting in your own way, isn’t going to make me change my mind.

You are not worth me risking my business and livelihood.

Sorry, everyone.

Please don’t come in here bitching because it smells like smoke. As I told the woman this afternoon, “It says ‘CIGAR’ four times on the sign.”

Looking forward to my one-star review for pointing out the obvious.

Look what just returned home! $25 to return a $50 cutter. Crime really doesn’t pay.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who helped track this du***ss down.

And to the du***ss, No, you are NOT welcome to come back here. (Yes, he actually asked.)

Sorry, not sorry ...
NO VA**NG at Cigar Shenanigans. None.

Why?
1. Because we own the place and we don’t want that crap in here.

2. Nope. That’s it. We don’t need to justify it further, so don’t be a whiny child and keep asking, “But why...?” That’ll get you a 20% As***le Tax.

If you’ve been told, and you do it anyway, you’re on our No Fly List. Maybe we’ll see you around town, but we won’t see you in here again.

This is borrowed from a cigar group, with permission. We deal with these issues every freaking day. As my mom says, “You can’t buy class.”:

One of my good friends is a cigar rep and previously sold pipe to***co for the Scandinavian To***co Group, he posted this on his page to start the new year. I couldn’t agree more!

Tips for Cigar Shop Customers in 2019:

1. If you walk in with a travel humidor and are not in the business, first ask if it’s ok to bring it in and then put it on your table and go into the humidor to make a purchase. These are small businesses who make their living not by coffee and soda sales but by cigar retail.

2. Don’t worry about Cuban Ci**rs. If there is a change, trust me it’ll make the news. But in the meantime WYSIWYG in the humidor. There are ci**rs equal to *or better* than Cubans filling that room from Honduras, Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua.

3. Do not put your cigar in your mouth before using the public cutter. I don’t know how people don’t realize this. It is not only gross. It is not only rude. It’s cruel to innocent metal.

4. There are a wide variety of approaches to the cigar business. There are a lot of archetypes on both sides of the counter. Take a temperate to see what the environment is before jumping to a conclusion. A lot of relationships start off on a bad foot between a customer and a retailer simply because the courtship process was dominated by someone trying too hard. It’s a relationship. Work on it.

5. There are very few BAD ci**rs. There are ci**rs that feature to***co you may not prefer and there are manufacturers who may not wow you but when it boils down to it this is an incestuous business. And a storytelling one. When you pull back the veneer of branding and bias these are products made by passionate craftsmen and women. If you are a boutique only smoker you are only seeing part of the story. Those boutiques exist because the larger manufacturers laid the foundation. If you only smoke big name brands you aren’t seeing the exciting work being done by the boutiques. Strip away the turf wars and regional bias and it’s a wonderful albeit dysfunctional family.

6. Do not spit in a community ashtray under any circumstance. Realize there is a human being that is going to have to clean that and trust me, they aren’t getting paid enough.

7. The same goes double for the restroom. If you walk in to a mess, either tidy it up or notify the proprietor. But do not add to it and leave. The bathroom at cigar shops is one of many “free” benefits many don’t appreciate. There’s always a human at the other end of the arrangement who has to deal with the scatter of matter.

8. Politics and Religion. It can bring people together but more often than not, it makes someone uncomfortable. Many shops have strong policies against divisive behavior. Many don’t. Once again, cigar shops are businesses. It’s the proprietor’s way or the highway. Don’t be the person who makes it uncomfortable for the collective. Know your audience and behave accordingly. Ultimately we are all brothers and sisters of the leaf.

9. If someone is smoking a cigar you don’t like, maybe keep it to yourself? It’s not your experience and you don’t know what that person is escaping with their cigar, you don’t want to dampen that relaxation. Oftentimes the moments folks have in a shop is their cushion from reality. Don’t soil that therapeutic moment.

10. If a cigar rep is visiting a shop they are not there to give customers a free cigar. A free cigar from a rep is one less cigar the shop can sell to a customer and this is a “get rich very slow” business. This is a passion business. If a customer is to be rewarded for their patronage, that is to come from the proprietor. But the squeaky wheel in that scenario isn’t the winner. It’s the reliable customer who supports the shop without asking for handouts.

11. Women smoke ci**rs. Let them. Because they are female and suddenly in a cigar shop doesn’t make them prey or any less deserving of respect. And don’t assume they want to smoke a flavored cigar. Research has shown us that men and women are both human and there really isn’t evidence to suggest they should be treated differently. Duh.

12. The FDA is quite a busy organization. Ask your retailer how how can help protect this business. At the very least know what practices and behavior best suits your local retailer so you aren’t part of the problem. Premium ci**rs and pipe to***co are a vital part of the heritage of this country and knowing the battles being waged to protect them is your duty.

13. Do not steal. We hear stories every day of customers of all ages who were regulars who suddenly got caught lifting ci**rs and accessories (and yes if you walk with a house cutter or lighter it is theft) and had to be prosecuted or asked to leave for good. This business is one of attrition. A retailer has to deal with ridiculous obstacles every day (and that’s before you factor in the daily phone calls from companies offering lower credit card processing fees) to the point where every cent counts. How dare you affect their margins with your laziness and selfishness.

14. Be nice. Seriously. Just chill the F out. If you disagree with someone. If they root for a team you hate. If your worldview doesn’t have room for their color, sexuality, or beard oil... let it rest. There is a thin film of bulls**t-straining material at the front door of a cigar shop. When we are in there together we are one. Do the best you can to maintain that rare solace.

15. Law Enforcement and Military folks are a big part of the core of this industry. Regardless of your politics these people are like gold. Ci**rs are a rite of passage for these folks. Do not take them for granted and make sure to take the time to appreciate them or share a smoke with them. Film critics, not so much...

Thanks for reading. I could be full of s**t but this is how I feel.

Thank you Valentino and Penny for making our trip to NH a memorable one. You really do have one of the best cigar selections in the country. Great atmosphere great place to visit. Will come back soon I hope. Thanks for the great memories!!!!!
Hello
My daughter thinks this is who sends me my cigar box every month!

Love this place! Thank you for making our anniversary so much fun!
Thanks again Cigar Shenanigans for yet another fantastic experience this past weekend! - Excellent atmosphere - Phenomenal selection of QUALITY ci**rs - Great service & Conversation! Hoping this will tide me over until my next trip up north.
Came in to see Penny and buy some ci**rs. Obviously this place is one of the best to get ci**rs in the state. Super helpful staff, and if you have a problem they will help you instead of treating you like a threat. 11/10 would shop again.
