Cigar Tent
9:00-11:00 pm
Double Cut Parking Lot

If you’re not ready to call it a night after a dinner out, the cigar tent might be a good place to drop by where cigars and stiff drinks will be plentiful. The outdoor tent will be toasty (but dress accordingly). On a scale of 1 to 5 for the coolness factor, this is a 6. We promise it’ll be an ‘experience.’
