Between now and the Chattanooga Tweet-Up, we will be featuring "spotlight" posts on each of the sponsors of the event. The order was chosen randomly.
The early years of the Great Depression might not seem like a great time to start any business, but it was the right time for Nat Sherman to start out in the tobacco business. Over the years the Nat Sherman store in New York became famous for its high quality cigars and cigarettes. Check out their website at www.NatSherman.com for the whole story, which is far too long to print here, but far too interesting to not read.
Wes Thornton, manager of the Downtown Chattanooga branch of Burns Tobacconist, brought in the Nat Sherman Timeless Collection earlier this year, so if you are coming to the Tweet-Up, make sure to plan on picking up a few of those when you get to the Downtown shop.
Michael Herklots, Nat Sherman's Executive Director of Retail and Brand Development, will be joining us for the Chattanooga Tweet-Up this year and he and Wes are co-sponsoring the After Party at Envy Ultra-Lounge. While on that subject, I would like to let all who were in the Tweet-Up know that last year our group set a record for attendance at Envy, but that record has been surpassed in the last few months. Plan on being there for the After-Party this year to destroy that record and take it back for the cigar-smokers! :)
