H. Upmann Banker Event Was Fun

Last Friday, August 8, we hosted an Event featuring H. Upmann Banker Cigars, the bolder and more complex cousin of the other, more well established, H. Upmann cigar lines.

As always, there was plenty of swag to entice our customers to give this high quality, well-priced cigar a try. Altadis, makers of such fine brands as Romeo y Julieta and Montecristo in addition to H. Upmann, sent scratch-off tickets to be given away with already discounted cigar purchases. Everybody loves a scratch-off contest. The scratch-off prizes included hats, ashtrays, money clips and, the grand prize, a cigar mold full of Banker Cigars!

And with that the Event was off to a terrific start!

Candace Martin, the H. Upmann Banker Rep, was on hand to provide product information and assistance.

And then the funniest thing happened. The very first sale of the day, and the very first scratch-off ticket, was the Grand Prize Winner!!!

Event Day at Mike’s is just a  great way to spend a lazy Friday afternoon! After golf, of course, which preceded the event for some of the regulars.
