Every Daddy Needs A Boys Night.

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Scandinavian Tobacco Group Lane, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CuberoLuxury

When my husband and I first starting dating, we would spend our weekends meeting up with friends at local watering holes, catching movies or concerts, and often getting together with his brothers and their wives. By far, one of our favorite things to do is get together with a few couples, grill some dinner on a beautiful summer night, and sip on some ice cold beer. And, if it is up to my husband and his brothers, there will always be cigars in tow. It is just one of their things. 

Now that we're parents and are typically battling at least a touch of sleep deprivation, we spend our Friday nights at home watching Shark Tank on our couch, and falling asleep somewhere around 11PM. We rarely have time to squeeze in a date night, unless it's planned way in advance, let alone any type of girls or 'guys nights out.' 

Most weekdays, when my husband comes walking through the door I am ready to hand him the baby and go running for the hills mall. Or at least to my car to get a moment's peace. I am so happy to have another set of haling hands at home, that I often forget that he just had a busy day at work, and he might need the down time about as much as I do. We plug away, week after week, and never really carve out too much time for either of us to get a break. Call it 'new parent' syndrome,' but I believe it is something we really need to be more intentional about. 

While I was out shopping at Walmart a few weeks back, I decided to pick up a pack of Cubero Cigars for B. I figured I would surprise him with them, and encourage him to get together with hi brothers and/or some guy friends for a guys night. Poker, beer, sports, movies, cigars, whatever made him happy. He could even host it at our house if he so desired. 

My husband is a simple guy at heart, so just catching up with a few guys is enough for him. He held onto an old poker set, a few sets of 3D glasses for our SmartTV, and a bunch of sports paraphernalia, and managed to turn a portion of our basement into a man cave. It's not much, but it's enough to host a few guys and be far enough away from the baby and I to relax. Of course, I didn't want to interrupt their time, but I managed to snap a few pics of some of the setup. Men are simple, what can I say?

Does your man need a guys night, too? Walmart is now carrying Cubero Cigarillos, Captain Black Cigarillos, or Captain Black Mini Tips, so you have lots to choose from. Cubero® is a high quality tobacco brand within the cigar industry, made with a natural wrapper and premium tobacco blend. The brand, developed by Lane Limited (USA), represents a wide variety of tobaccos that are renowned for their aromatic and flavorful qualities. They now manufacture and sell a variety of cigars, pipe tobacco, and fine-cut tobacco for the US market. As a renowned brand, they recognize their products and business require consideration and responsibility in everything they do. Today Scandinavian Tobacco is proud to share the #1 position within the world of cigars, operate as the largest manufacturer of machine made cigars and pipe tobacco in the world, and act as a dominant player in the world of roll-your-own tobacco.

Encouraging the men in your life to take some time off is great for them, and hey, then they'll be more inclined to send you off for a spa day or something, right?!
