Weekly News (November 22, 2010)
It’s been a quietly busy week. The big news, the Tatuaje Anarchy launched. It’s a pigtailed Figurado that measures a 6 1/8 x 48-52 in fifteen count boxes around $150 from Smoke Inn. Brian Hewitt had some updates on the other Tatuaje projects including the Monster Series and Saints & Sinners. Brian also dug up some info on Ernesto Padilla’s new projects. Rocky opened up his new lounge, Burn. My understanding is that there should be Rocky lounges popping up all over the country, but we’ll wait and see I suppose.
Another week, another lawsuit – this time it’s Chivas and cigarsbychivas.com. Thompson Cigar laid off nearly eighty people in its other companies. In legislation news, San Jose is looking to increase taxes and fees for tobacconists and new advertising rules in Australia seek to outlaw cigar advertising online.
Finally, we launched our Winter Charity Raffle, it’s been up for a few days now and we have already raised quite a bit, but any and all support will be much appreciated.
