St. Paddy’s Day is upon us, the only night of the year when drinking green beer seems like a good idea. This week we have a great deal on green-wrapped cigars, an event for lovers of all kinds of beer, new smokes and a rapper with good taste.




The Filthy Hooligan is Back

Nothing goes with green beer like a green cigar, right? Since St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Monday this year, the celebrations will start Friday afternoon and go on through the weekend, or until you get sick of drinking cheap draft beer tinted with green food coloring. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Alec Bradley has brought back the Black Market Filthy Hooligan cigar. This cigar made its debut in February 2013 and the initial limited run of 3,000 boxes sold out quickly. The Filthy Hooligan is a standard Black Market cigar wrapped in a green candela leaf and aged one year. A 72-hour heat curing process locks in the chlorophyll for the bright green color. If you want a great deal on this cigar, read a little further.
