On Wednesday, April 24, Siciliano's Market is teaming up with Trail Point Brewing to host a beer and cigar event at the brewery's Allendale location at 6035 Lake Michigan Drive. A selection of Tabacalera Perdomo’s hand-rolled Nicaraguan cigars will be featured at this event and attendees will be able to pair these premium, hand-crafted smokes with Trail Point's solid offerings of premium, hand-crafted beer. The event will be held on the outdoor patio from 5 pm to 9 pm. The Patty Matters food truck will be on site during the course of the event. There is no admission fee but please note that during the course of the event the patio will be open only to those of legal drinking age.
We will be selling the cigars on site and will be offering the following deals on quantity purchases.

Buy 10, Get 3 Free

In other news, the new carpeting is installed and, I’m pleased to report, the Siciliano’s staff made it through this major renovation without suffering any significant injuries. All the employees had a hand in the deconstruction and reconstruction of shelving and they did an incredible job of keeping the store running relatively smoothly during the two weeks of chaos. Additional kudos to our managers, Sarah, Kati and John, for coordinating the logistics of this project.
