the Cigar Society of Chicago
ONE OF THE OLDEST AND greatest
traditions of the city clubs of Chicago is the discussion of
intellectual, social, legal, artistic, historical, scientific,
musical, theatrical, and philosophical issues in the company of
educated, bright, and appropriately provocative individuals, all
under the beneficent influence of substantial amounts of tobacco
and spirits. The
Cigar Society of Chicago embraces this tradition and
extends it with its Informal Smokers,
University Series lectures, and Cigar Society Dinners,
in which cigars, and from time to time pipes and cigarettes,
appear as an important component of our version of the classical
symposium. To be included in the Cigar Society's
