"James, Tickets to the Big Smoke Las Vegas go on sale at the end of April. Check back soon for more details. " —February 7, 2017 13:46 PM
"Hey guys.....can you tell me when tickets to Big Smoke Vegas will go on sale. My brother is coming from back east with his two boys....one of whom just got engaged... so this will be a fun celebration for our family. Want to make sure we get our tickets early. Keep me posted and thanks!" —February 7, 2017 12:42 PM
"At a Big Smoke you get a minimum of 25 cigars. Most people opt to smoke a few (2?) during the event. The rest they store in the handy bag we give you when you walk in. So you leave the event with a bag stuffed with great cigars, and you've had a few cigars at the event itself. " —January 16, 2017 12:22 PM
"A schedule of activities, events, etc. would be nice to have before I drop $325+. Also, if we are going to smoke outdoors, some type of rain protection would be good to have as the probability of rain showers in Miami is almost 100% at some point each afternoon." —January 16, 2017 11:52 AM
"Can you be more specific....How exactly do you "taste' a cigar without lighting it? do you keep the cigar you taste?" —January 16, 2017 09:34 AM
"VIP admission gets you early access to the event." —January 10, 2017 15:22 PM
"It is still very vague what you actually get for the admission. Can you please post what the General and VIP admission gets you other than access to walking around an area that will have cigar mfg and spirits. Do you get a night at the hotel, a certain number of cigars, free drinks.... or what? Thanks" —January 6, 2017 10:30 AM
"Kind of disappointing, not being able to smoke as you walk around the event " —January 5, 2017 23:39 PM
"Resut@aol.com - The article says, "Smoking is permitted in all outdoor areas of the hotel." So one would presume that the event floor is going to be indoors but smoking will be outdoors. As if the entire event was outdoors heavy rain as is common in April in South Florida would shut the event down but I could be wrong. They could also still be working out the logistics. " —January 4, 2017 09:23 AM
"Will the Big Smoke Miami event be held indoors or outdoors? Thanks RS" —January 4, 2017 08:22 AM
"No--we have both. Big Smoke Vegas takes place Nov 17-19." —January 3, 2017 22:04 PM
"Does this mean there is no big smoke vegas in 2017?" —January 3, 2017 21:06 PM
