Don’t miss the 2nd annual CARS and CIGARS

“There’s something about smoking a cigar that feels like a celebration. It’s like a fine wine. There’s a quality, a workmanship, a passion that goes into the smoking of a fine cigar.” – Demi Moore

Guests will be able to enjoy a nice cigar along with wines or spirits and great food at Cars and Cigars!

Guests will be able to enjoy a nice cigar along with wines, spirits and El Gaucho fare at Cars and Cigars!

In celebration of that spirit, El Gaucho Tacoma and LeMay – America’s Car Museum have joined forces again this year to present the 2nd annual Cars and Cigars, Saturday, August 2nd.

Held outdoors on the Anderson Pavilion at LeMay, the event captures the essence of summer in the Pacific Northwest. Guests will be able to sit back in plush, leather sofas under a shaded canopy, puff from one of the three sponsored cigars (Romeo y Julieta, H. Upmann, and Montecristo), all while listening to singer/songwriters Dave Hannon and Angie Lynn provide live pop/rock originals and cover music.

Glass Vodka, Wishkah Distillery and Heritage Distillery will all be offering samples to taste at Cars and Cigars.

Nearby, local distilleries, including Glass Vodka, Wishkah River (whiskey and gin) and Heritage Distilleries (whiskey, gin and rum), will offer liquid concoctions to compliment the smoke in your hand. If spirits aren’t your bag, Hedges Family Estate will be sampling their latest wines. Of course, El Gaucho will provide tasty fare for guests to consume throughout the evening.

Guests can enjoy the sunny afternoon on the plaza's lounge.

If the comforts of the breeze through the shaded lounge becomes too much, guests can stretch their legs and wander through the amassed classic car collection and dream about days gone by.

By the end of the evening you’ll feel like George Burns summed it up: “Happiness? A good cigar, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman – or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle.”

The event will be a real ring-dinger you won’t want to miss.
