CIGARBQUE ASSEMBLES LOCAL CHEFS AND MIXOLOGISTS FOR EVENT THIS THURSDAY

Chicago cigar, food and cocktail festival makes its Atlanta debut at the Freight Depot April 23

ATLANTA  (April 22, 2015) – Cigars, cocktails and fine food: these simple indulgences are the driving forces behind CigarBQue, a Chicago festival founded by Chefs Rick Gresh, Cleetus Friedman and Giuseppe Tentori. After three years of success in their hometown, the founders of CigarBque are expanding their festival across the nation. Atlanta, nationally recognized for its thriving restaurant culture, was a natural target, and local chefs and mixologists have fired up their grills and iced down their shakers to bring attendees creative dishes and cocktails that will pair well with a stogie.
