Morton’s To Host Premium Cigar Dinner Before Smoking Ban Becomes Law In Michigan


Troy, Michigan. April 7, 2010 — With the clock ticking toward Michigan’s upcoming restaurant smoking ban, Morton’s The Steakhouse in Troy has planned the perfect event for cigar lovers to enjoy an evening filled with fine wine, Morton’s signature food and exquisite cigars–before the May 1 deadline.

On Friday, April 23, Morton’s and Churchill’s are teaming up to present a premium cigar dinner. The reception begins at 6:30 pm followed by a four course dinner prepared by Executive Chef Ed Takacs with wines and cigars presented with each course. The evening will also include a silent auction with 100% of the money raised going to The Rainbow Connection, a charity dedicated to fulfilling the dreams for children with terminal and life-threatening illnesses.

Mary Grace McCarter, Executive Director of the 501c3 charity explains “For 25 years The Rainbow Connection has relied on the kind generosity of others to grant over 2000 wishes to Michigan children. The Morton’s contribution will truly make a difference in the life of a local child stricken with a life threatening illness and we are so very grateful.”

The cost for the cigar dinner is $150.00 per person, including tax and gratuity. For reservations or more information, call Andrea Aretakis at 248-404-9845. To view the entire menu, including cigar selections, visit www.morton/

“This is a great night for cigar lovers to celebrate with friends and help a very worthy charity,” said Morton’s General Manager Steve Salmon. “We’ve planned a special night to savor one of the last times our guests can enjoy a cigar at Morton’s The Steakhouse Troy.”

Morton’s The Steakhouse is located at 888 West Big Beaver Road in Troy. Dinner is served from 5:30 p.m. until 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Sundays.
