Tuesday, May 14, 5:30-8:30.
The Lounge at Iwan Ries, 19 South Wabash

Scott Stantis, editorial cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune, will introduce the Cigar Society to Eric Garcia, Pilsen-based political cartoonist, public muralist, and recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  Scott is often called a conservative or libertarian; he calls himself a contrarian.  Eric is often called a liberal; he says his work is "historically based, politically charged criticism, with the goal of creating dialogue about complicated issues."



About the Cigar Society of Chicago

ONE OF THE OLDEST AND greatest traditions of the city clubs of Chicago is the discussion of intellectual, social, legal, artistic, historical, scientific, musical, theatrical, and philosophical issues in the company of educated, bright, and appropriately provocative individuals, all under the beneficent influence of substantial amounts of tobacco and spirits.  The Cigar Society of Chicago embraces this tradition and extends it with its Informal Smokers, University Series lectures, and Cigar Society Dinners, in which cigars, and from time to time pipes and cigarettes, appear as an important component of our version of the classical symposium.  To be included in the Cigar Society's mailing list, write to the Secretary at
