Lovers of the leaf looking to plan their next cigar adventure will be happy to hear that the dates have been set for Cigar Aficionado's 2016 Big Smoke Las Vegas weekend, the largest cigar celebration in the world. And yes, you can smoke.
The weekend-long cigar fete is scheduled to take place next year from November 11 to November 13 and will once again be held at The Mirage Hotel Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas strip.
Tickets to the event will go on sale April 30, 2016. [Update: Tickets will now go on sale May 15.]
The Big Smoke Las Vegas weekend traditionally kicks off with a Friday Evening party in which revelers have the opportunity to personally meet-and-greet many of the cigar industry's most popular cigarmakers as they pass out their treasured smokes. Celebrants are able to pair these cigars with great food and spirits, and on Saturday night, attendees get the chance to do it all over again with another Evening bash.
Tickets to the seminars consistently sell out months in advance. The Saturday seminars focus on premium cigars and many of the industry's most notable experts attend to speak while the Sunday seminars center on lifestyle activities related to cigars.
