Last fall was my first cigar aficionado Big Smoke event.
It was absolutely awesome. Hosted by the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center(in VEGAS), I joined 6,000 other cigar enthusiasts, more venders than I can name, Cool and the Gang live on stage (with "pole dancers"), and ate and drank the night away (for "free"). :)

For $170 bucks, some frequent flier miles, and great hotel rate I came home with fabulous memories, some extra cash in my pockets (from the tables) and more than 30 top shelf smokes. Plus free cutters, lighters, magazine, and other goodies.

My buddy - screen name golfgoose - took a ton of pics. They are posted on this site somewhere. Check em out.

Wondering… who is going this year? Sound off.

By the way, I am new here. So ,hello everyone. Very cool site!

SOunds like a blast. When is the next one?

DsrtDog.
The fall dates have not been announced. Last year thery were Nov 12-14.
Usually one on the east coast and one on the west coast.
(Vegas and New York... what a tough choice)

The spring dates are set for May and are in Chiago and Atlantic City.
For more info go to cigar affecinato's web site.

I was actually IN VEGAS on the last day of the 2004 Big Smoke, and didn't even realize it until I got home and saw the ad in the Bill Murray issue of CA. Of course, that day I was also there specifically to get married, and then we flew out the next morning to Mexico. Somehow, I don't think my wife would have appreciated me dragging her to a cigar convention on her wedding night!! :r

Still, wish I knew! I would have suggested we go see what the hotel looked like, and then say "Oh, gee! What's going on here...?" :p

There is also a Big Smoke event in Chicago this year on May 4, 2005. Anyone here planning on attending that one? I would love to meet some of the BOTLs from the Club there.

I was there last November at the Friday night BS.

To me, it was just too crowded. I do not know if I'll go again.

I am looking forward to the LVCS (Las Vegas Cigar Summit) April 30th, though. It's a lot smaller group of botl from the internet forums.
