This is our second time at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods. It’s a cool, boutique hotel and casino on the grounds of the much larger Foxwoods casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. Last year I saw readers who hadn’t been to a Big Smoke in some time, people from Boston, Providence, Rhode Island, as well as from the New York City area. Smoking laws have kept us out of Boston for years—the Bostonians were happy to see us back in their area, and we were happy to have them there.
If you’re in the area and you’re ready to have a smoke, join us. For more info or to pick up tickets, click here.
