A different kind of cigar dinner

Daddy Mims Creole in Phoenixville will pair up with Twisted Leaf Cigars next door for a five-course Creole meal on Sept. 10.

The pairings are not wines, or single malts, or beers.

But cigars.

Chef John Mims explains that after each course, patrons will walk next door to the store's lounge to puff.
