TOM AND YOUR NEW FRIENDS ARE WAITNG FOR YOU AT
THE LITE UM UP CIGARS LOUNGE
THE JOURNEY BEGINS
A DECORATED US ARMY VETERAN
For Tom Burns, walking in this field is another step on a journey that began on a road named Hardscrabble in the Northeast corner of Richland County, South Carolina. After more than a year of planning and building a customer base from his home, Tom opened the Lite Um Up Cigars Lounge in April 2008. A decorated U.S. Army veteran, Tom’s vision for the business was to create a welcome escape from everyday life for cigars aficionados. With a long bar, several tables, overstuffed chairs and a walk-in humidor, customers soon christened the lounge the “Man Cave.” The name stuck and the legend was born.
BAND OF BROTHERS
A TRIBUTE TO A FALLEN FRIEND
So, Tom headed to Honduras. He carefully selected the wrappers, binders and fillers for his own line of unique, high quality cigars that he contracted with the Patel organization to produce. The process from field to finished cigars puts together the best of the centuries-old craft of cigar making with state-of-the-art quality control standards. The result is a medium-bodied Corojo, a full-bodied Sumatra, a mild-to-medium-bodied Habano, and a medium-to-full-bodied Maduro. The Man Cave brand of cigars, which come in a variety of sizes, debuted to rave reviews and robust sales.
