The year of the cowboy honoring Michael W Mayer is the theme. It’s that time again. That’s right, the annual event you’ve been waiting for, NFG2023. You were here last year and you saw how we throw down at the Underground. (And if you weren’t, you can redeem yourself this time around.) Like Hamilton, “we’re young, scrappy, and hungry.” This is the baddest boutique bash to be socially responsibly attending. You already know-and if you don’t, now you know-that we at the Underground take pride in defying convention and expectation. As you are aware, we define “Boutique,” and this year will be no different.
Here-and only here-you’ll find the best offerings of the limited, small batch, and event only boutique cigars that you know us for. You’ll find finely crafted sticks from vendors you regularly depend on, newcomers to this game we all enjoy, and maybe even an item or two to expand your palette. Bring yourself, bring your significant other, bring your friends who have yet to experience all that is the Underground. Come ready to fellowship and burn with friends past and to forge new bonds with newcomers to the Family.

General ticket does not include a grab bag or swag, but allows you to purchase event only special and exclusives.

The only thing you are not entered in will be the table raffles, which will be for attendees only. You can get tickets for the regular raffle since it is open to everyone.
We understand that some may feel uncomfortable traveling during this time. If so, the Non-Attendee may be for you.
