CAO Flathead

CAO Flathead Cigars

One fact pretty well know about most men is there are three big loves in their life; cars, cigars, and girls.  Knowing this is true, CAO cigar line decided to try and create a cigar that would hit those three points, and that is exactly what they did with the CAO Flathead cigar line.  The CAO Flathead cigar was first announced at the IPCPR 2013 Trade Show and it was also stated that they would be available as soon as September rolled around.  Obviously we wanted to get out hand on these unique cigars as soon as we could, and as of a few days ago you can now find them here at Gotham Cigars!

The CAO Flathead was inspired by a series of conversations the cigar maker was having.  He noticed that the conversations he’d been having with people recently seemed to involve the same topics; girls, cars and cigars.  The CAO Flathead cigar line brings together a 50’s and 60’s looking engine block cigar box, collectible flysheet with a pin up girl on it and premium box pressed cigars.  The CAO Flathead was created to hit all 3 points that draw male’s attention, muscle cars, girls and cigars.  The unique design of the Flathead cigar box resembles an old engine block which hits at men’s love for cars while also giving them great quality premium cigars.  The lid of the Flathead box also doubles as wall art for any man cave just put the Flathead cigars into a humidor and hang up the engine block lid.

For Football fans, Football season means it’s time to pick your Fantasy Football team, start your rituals that ensure good juju or good luck on your team and Sunday night Football, but most importantly, time for tailgating!

Die hard football fans gather in the parking lot hours before kick-off to enjoy some great food, beer and socializing.  Tailgating is a time where fans of the same team can show support for their team as well as meet fellow fans and celebrate the game before it starts.  A fun fact about tailgating is the fact that 35% of the people who participate, don’t actually stay to watch the game.  Tailgating is one of America’s most loved part of Football season, but not everyone knows how this pregame event got its start.

1970s Tailgating

The history of tailgating dates back to over a century ago.  This pastime was actually started as a sign of Civil War patriotism, which then evolved into a form of team comradery.  The basics of food at drink making up tailgating actually got its start in 1861 at the Battle of Bull Run during the Civil War.  Civilians would gather on both sides of the battle with food in hand as their cheered on their soldiers.  While this may not have been the safest thing for these civilians to do, it was the first sign of team comradery in the history of American tailgating.



The next step of the evolution was the invention of the Chuckwagon.  The Chuckwagon was a US Army wagon that was converted into a wagon with a grill on the back by a man named Charles Goodnight.  This Texas rancher used the invented the Chuckwagon so that he could be able to feed his cowboys when they weren’t near the ranch.  The Chuckwagon became a great meeting place for cowboys to gather around for food and socializing.  The history of tailgating and the evolution into what it is now shows that this event is a great balance of celebration and fandom, food and socializing, and above all things, team spirit.  Tailgating plays a huge part in football season in the American culture.  It is an pastime that has become more and more popular over the years and will continue to evolve in better ways in the years to come.

Cigars have always been an item found in celebration, whether you choose to smoke a cigar in honor of a new job, new addition to your family, weddings, or just because every day is something to celebrate.  As you can see it is a no brainer as to why cigars are making their way into tailgating.
