CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 29 - September 4, 1997 - 57 Cigar craze continues in Cape Region From the walk-in humidor, Hardesty can produce cigars rang- ing in price from a modest couple of dollars to $25, the latter usually requested for weddings, as a gift for a boss, or a birthday. But $3 or $4 can purchase a very nice cigar, such as the Arturo Fuente, which Hardesty termed very well made. "One lady re- cently came in looking for a cigar ashtray for her husband," he said. "Cigars are one of the fastest growing industries in-the world,. and very fashionable for the crowd in the late 20s to 40s, who have disposable income," Hard- esty said. - .... One only need look at the latest magazines to see Arnold Swartzenagger, Sy Stalone or Sharon Stone puffing away con- tentedly. Some stars such as George'Har- rison, Chuck Norris and Jim Belushi offer their very own brands on the market. There have been a number of cigar dinners in the Cape Region this past year, and the Cigarette Outlet provides the cigars and works with the particular restau- rant on choosing the right wines, cognacs or single malt scotches, as well as the menu. They plan to resume these dinners in the fall. The Rehoboth Cigarette Outlet will be the site of more demons- trations in the future, with the next planned for November. For those unable to stop by, the cigars can be purchased via Inter- net and shipped by UPS. Hard- esty noted he ships as far away as Chicago and Oregon and can be reached at www.cigars/for/ j! Summer Brading of Centreville, Ohio holds a cigar rolling demonstration at Rehoboth Cigarette Outlet on Saturday, Aug. 23, which attracted many curious onlookers. By Trish Vernon The whole country has seen a rebirth in the popularity of cigars and not just during late night pok- er games. The Cape Region is no excep- tion, which was evident one week- end afternoon at Rehoboth Ciga- rette Outlet and Newsstand in the Marketplace shopping center, as people flocked around to watch Summer Brading hand roll Madri- gal Habana cigars. Brading, who hails from Cen- terville, Ohio, bunched and wrapped the leaves, using a vari- ety of leaves - lagero, quarta, be- laro - some meant to bind, others as filler or to impart a stronger taste. Once wrapped, the cigars are pressed for a half hour and then wrapped. Brading said she jumped at the chance to travel all over the coun- try demonstrating this art, "and it's so popular, I can't make them fast enough." With expertise such as Brad- ings' or the owners of the outlet, Mark Hardesty and Dave Smith, a customer can be "tailor fitted" to just the right cigar for a particular taste or occasion. "Business couldn't be better - it's difficult to keep enough good cigars in stock," Hardesty ex- plained. "Fortunately, we have the ability to purchase the popular brand names in volume and have what they're looking for." He noted that a lot of the popu- lar brands are made with Mexican tobacco, often blended with natur- al light skin tobacco and the maduro, which is darker and a bit more flavorful.
