Clear your calendars and put in your requests for vacation time because two Big Smoke events are officially on the books this year, and one of them is taking place at an entirely new venue. Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest returns to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida for the second time while the Big Smoke Las Vegas Weekend is moving to Resorts World—one of the newest facilities to open on the famous Las Vegas Strip.

Scheduled for Saturday, May 28, Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest will be a merging of two lifestyle shows brought together to combine the finest handmade cigars with exclusive whiskies and rare vintages of Scotch, Bourbon, rye and much more. There are educational cigar seminars and whisky pairings in the morning followed by a good life celebration in the evening. Visit BigSmokeWhiskyFest.com for tickets and additional details about the event.

The Big Smoke Las Vegas Weekend has found a new venue at the posh Resorts World Las Vegas and it’s taking place on November 11 and 12, featuring two nights of Big Smoke evenings and a day of cigar seminars that showcase some of the biggest names in the cigar business and the editors of Cigar Aficionado magazine. Visit LasVegasBigSmoke.com to buy tickets, or for more information.
