Big Week, Big Smoke

Posted: Nov 28, 2012 12:00am ET

November is always a busy month here at Cigar Aficionado. We hold the Las Vegas Big Smoke, finalize our top 25 cigars of the year, and throw a big party in our hometown: The Big Smoke New York.

The event takes place on Thursday night, and it allows cigar lovers to light up indoors and share a smoke with their fellow aficionados and some of the biggest names in the premium cigar industry. (Tickets are still available—click here for details.)

Big Smoke week means visitors from the cigar world in our offices, smoky meetings and late night dinners. It brings the cigar world to Manhattan and makes our office a very busy place. At any given time you might find Litto Gomez in one office and Jorge Padrón in another. Rocky and Nish Patel might drop by for a smoke and a chat, and Carlos Fuente Jr. or Alan Rubin might say hello and talk about their latest creations.

Big Smoke week is a high-energy stretch of cigar smoking and camaraderie. All of us from Cigar Aficionado will be there-come and join us.

Dave I have wondered why the everyday people, why 5 or 3 or even 1 person. Is not selected in some not so random way, what I mean is have them earn it some how, don't ask me what that is, I make $11 an hour and you, well make more, and bring them to the Big Smoke event every year?

I would love to go, but I live in Maine and well I don't see big smoke Sabattus happening anytime soon. Just curious.
