Teri Sims

Preferred Cigar/Drink Pairing:  Wine and Scotch (Oban), enjoys a few “sticks” with no particular favorite


Owner of Sims Consulting and Pug Fest; Merchandiser for 2018 Real Deal Championship Boxing

I’ve been a member for well over a year now, and I think of CCC as my second home. I consider my friends here – an extension of my family

Teri Sims remembers the 4th of July a few years ago when attempting to attend a local hot spot which ultimately did not fit her style; she immediately felt overdressed while others were in shorts and t-shirts and wasn’t too keen on standing in a line for entry.  But thanks to the recommendation of a valet, Teri ventured up the street to Cigar City Club which she has found to be a great place to meet and socialize with professionals both in and out of the club.  Soon after discovering CCC membership was not exclusive to avid cigar smokers, Teri applied and has since enjoyed the benefit of storing her wine in a designated locker along with having access to reserved club areas.
Teri believes elements that draw people to CCC include its

  • Atmosphere
  • Food (her favorite, the Salmon BLT)
  • Professional Clientele
  • Great Music (the multi-talented Dave Scott)

Teri’s independent consulting firm keeps her busy with a variety of contracts from her well established ability to build healthcare provider networks nationwide to bringing her creative director skills to marketing deals.  Look to purchase the merchandising she is creating for the Real Deal Championship Boxing Events in 2018.  Beyond consulting, Teri’s true passion lies with Pug Rescue.  She finds and purchases Pugs for the largest rescue in the country, Mid-Atlantic Pug Rescue, so they can find suitable homes for them.  Teri is a true lover of the breed and currently owns 2 Pugs and fosters 3 others providing them with a hospice home.  For more on Pug Adoptions visit
