From the creative and innovative minds that brought you the Broadway Cigar Company and Cigar Lady PDX comes a new promotional concept sure to set the cigar world on its proverbial ear. The Cigar Mistresses are officially here and the Portland Cigar community will never be the same.
Formally known as CigarLadyPDX, Ruth Rosebery Wegner, her blonde-bombshell partner in crime Jen Wood and the man behind Broadway Cigar, Jason Lee collaborated on this revolutionary concept. The Cigar Mistresses are a team comprised of some of Portland’s most aesthetically thrilling females. Billing themselves as a promotional team, the Mistresses -who's motto is "Always naughty...Never nice" are available for hire to work at your next cigar-friendly event. Golf Tournaments, Fundraisers and beyond will all now be much more tantalizing affairs.
These ladies are the real deal too. Ruth and Jason have gone the full 9 yards and then some! Easy to pick out in a crowd, the Mistresses are clad in custom made, scalding hot leather vests. The decadent yet ultimately erotic Mistress “uniform” was designed and created by the same company responsible for the heart-throbbing outfits worn by the women of the famous Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Presentation is everything after all! Each woman is outfitted with their own cigar accessories as well, offering cutting and lighting of your favorite stick. What red-blooded American man with an affliction for fine cigars wouldn’t enjoy that experience? Stop thinking, the answer is none of them.
Much like the city of Portland itself, the Mistresses are comprised of an extremely diverse collection of individuals. Former Roller Derby queens, models, housewives and post-grads all come together under the Mistress banner to create an amazingly unique composition of women. This lends itself quite well to the diverse collection of events they are available for in the fact that The Cigar Mistresses are able to “custom fit” so to speak the specific girls used for any given event.
In addition to the appearances, the Cigar Mistresses have multiple ways for their fans to enjoy their imagery. Starting with Cigarmistresses.com, their website will be home base for meeting the girls as well as booking events with them. A series of web ads is currently watchable on YouTube, and they do a fine job of getting one’s interest peaked to say the very least. For true aficionado out there, the Mistresses also host cigar reviews on their very own YouTube channel reviewing cigars in a way only the Mistresses could truly do. Last but certainly as exciting is the release of the Cigar Mistresses Calendar which was shot locally by Master Photographer Julian James Wilde and is a tasteful yet erotic photo tribute to the smoldering combination of seduction and smoke.
All in all, it is downright befuddling that this concept has not existed in the Portland Cigar realm for years already. The combination of sultry women, fine cigars and a relaxed atmosphere is the most organic combination since the classic pairing of peanut butter and jelly. With Portland’s cigar scene growing daily and the plethora of gorgeous women this city has to offer, it was simply a matter of time before the light bulb switched on. In fact this idea is posed to catch serious momentum when a collection of the Mistresses make their way –via private plane no less - to Las Vegas for Cigar Aficionado’s Big Smoke in November.
The timing of their debut couldn’t be better. This weekend, November 2nd marks the fifth year anniversary of Broadway Cigar and the event is going to definitely be one for the books. The Mistresses will be there in force excited to launch this exciting new venture. Make sure to stop by Broadway's flagship store in NE Portland for one of the most all-encompassing cigar events to ever grace the Portland Cigar Scene!
