Hosted by Joe Curio from Flame Fine Cigars. Joe was born and raised in Commack, NY and has been in the tobacco industry for 10 years. He got his start working and running a cigar lounge in Virginia while attending JMU.
After graduating with a degree in marketing, he moved back home and was hired by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. as a sales representative. Joe spent the next two years visiting accounts and getting acclimated to the Long Island tobacco industry. He was also hired by a former cigar lounge in Port Jefferson to manage their lounge on the weekends. Shortly thereafter it turned into a full time position.
In 2012, the cigar lounge was closing down and Joe saw an opportunity to start one of his own. He opened Flame Fine Cigars & Smoking Lounge as an upscale tobacco establishment with a private member only lounge.
Most of Joe’s old clients followed and supported the new endeavor which is now just over a year old. Flame Fine Cigars has a large Island-wide customer base, with members from as far as Sag Harbor and Queens.
Flame offers a large lounge with comfortable seating, four TV’s, Wi-Fi, coffee bar and optional humidified lockers. With cigar, sporting and lifestyle events happening every month, there is always something happening at the lounge!
