Big Smoke 2013 Dates Announced

Consult your family, plan with your boss for time off work and make sure someone’s available to feed the dog because the 2013 Big Smoke dates have been officially set.

This year’s Big Smoke Las Vegas Weekend is scheduled for November 8 to 10 and will once again take place at The Mirage Hotel and Casino. Tickets go on sale May 1.

This will be the 18th consecutive year that Las Vegas has hosted a Big Smoke, and the format will be the same: evening parties scheduled for Friday and Saturday with cigar and lifestyle educational seminars on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

For those on the East Coast there is Big Smoke New York, which will take place on December 5 at Pier 92. Tickets will go on sale June 1.

Check out our slideshows of the 2012 Big Smoke Las Vegas Weekend and Big Smoke New York.

I have wondered why the everyday person, 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 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.

I'll be attending Big Smoke NYC on Dec. 5 along with three other people and we plan on spending a couple of nights in the city. Is there a hotel asociated with the event, and if not, what would be the recommended hotel near Pier 92.
