November 21, 2013 (Hialeah Gardens, Fla.) — Espinosa Premium Cigars is proud to announce the unveiling of their domino lounge at Cordova Cigars in Pensacola, Florida. The Espinosa Cigars Domino Lounge features custom domino tables and a variety of branded decor from Espinosa Premium Cigars.  Over the years Erik Espinosa has been to Cordova Cigars for a number of events, all of which end up turning into domino tournaments, usually rather quickly.  Erik helped spark interest in Cuban-style “Nines” and has become a Cordova Cigars domino legend. It is for that reason, that Robbie Morton, founder and owner of Cordova Cigars, wanted to dedicate this lounge in Erik’s honor. “We at Cordova Cigars are extremely honored to become an even closer part of the Espinosa cigar company’s family. Erik Espinosa is one of the best friends Cordova Cigars has ever had, and we have both supported each other without question since day one of Cordova Cigars, which opened very shortly after the launch of 601 a number of years ago”, explains Robbie.

This marks the second branded lounge from Espinosa Premium Cigars. The first being the 601 Cigar Lounge at Casa Belicoso in Walnut Creek, California, which was launched on September 23, 2011.

The Espinosa Cigars Domino Lounge was unveiled at Cordova Cigars on November 14, 2013 with special guest and host, Erik Espinosa. “Robbie has been a dear friend of mine for many years and on behalf of my team and I, we are very honored over the launch of the Espinosa Cigars Domino Lounge.” said Erik Espinosa.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
