There has been a lot of talk about the upward trend in "mancations", upscale vacations for men that include hand rolled cigars and other amenities. A new Regent South Beach hotel will be opening next month in Miami Beach to further exploit that market. Although cigars have always been a part of the carefree lifestyle of the rich and famous, cigars are also an affordable luxury that can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of social and/or financial status. For me, lighting up a fine cigar has always been like taking a mini vacation. While I am smoking a cigar, I escape from the reality of daily life, and am not available to solve the world's problems (at least until after I finish my cigar). By all means, smoke cigars and enjoy life while on vacation. But if you can't go on a mancation every week, try taking a cigarcation instead.
