It’s been almost a full year since the U.S. went on lockdown, but Cigar Aficionado is giving cigar fans something to look forward to for 2021: a return to Big Smoke Las Vegas, the magazine’s largest event. Now you can finally get your tickets.
The Big Smoke Las Vegas weekend will take place from November 5 to 6 at the Mirage Hotel & Casino and includes two classic Big Smoke evening events on Friday and Saturday night, as well as an exciting program of daytime seminars with Cigar Aficionado editors and renowned cigarmakers on Saturday (guest speakers to be announced). The panel discussions will include a talk and tasting of the top cigars of 2020, led by the cigarmakers who created them.
Drawing cigar enthusiasts from all over the world, the smoke-friendly event not only gives attendees insight into the mysterious world of handmade cigars, but also direct face time with some of the biggest stars of the premium industry.
Event coordinators with both Cigar Aficionado and the Mirage will be working together to ensure that the assortment of food, spirits and cigars are enjoyed in the safest environment possible.
The announcement of this fall’s Big Smoke comes right after the inaugural Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest which will take place October 30 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. In conjunction with sister publication Whisky Advocate, the event will feature a broad selection of spirits and cigars, as well as seminars for whiskeys and cigars from key players in both industries.
