The Big Smoke NYC

  • December 5, 2013 · 6:00 PM

This is for this years Big Smoke at Pier 92. I know for the last few months I have been talking about it and now I am posting it and this will remain on the board till Dec. If you are interested in going, you must purchased your ticket from Cigar Aficionado site. You must purchased online. Tickets are $240 which includes taxes and handling. You then print out your own ticket. Sounds like a lot of money, it really isn't. You will be given over 25 premium cigars, each in a seperate packaging. They will have a food buffet table setup in a seperate room. You will be offered the best premium spirits, beers and wine (no limit). Some of tables will have special activities such as tastings or roll your own cigar. There will be models all over the place that will take pictures with you. They will be given away freebies such as steins, hats,tote bag, etc. You will meet the actual people associated with each brand cigar including Rocky Patel. There will be celebrities including Rudy Giuliani and last year, Dan Aykroyd. Plus, much more. The last time I went, when it was at the Marriot, I total up the stuff I did that night and it added up to over $700. You will feel like a little kid in a toy store. The best part you can light up as soon as you enter and join the largest gathering of cigar smokers. The doors open at 6:00 and you have til 9:30. Please, RSVP if you are serious about purchasing tickets. I will make arrangements with those a week ahead of time, on how we will meet, etc. If you have any questions email me or asked me on our next meet.

    The Big Smoke was like a cigar lovers orgy !! The drinks and cigars were awesome ( I stocked up my humidor with about 35 premium cigars ). A bit too commercialized and crowded ( they could have had set up some lounging areas so we could hang out and enjoy a cigar or two with friends ). Sorry that I didn't have time to hang out with the group as I had to leave a bit early.
    Wishing a Merry Christmasand a Happy New Year to all enjoy the Holiday season and let's have a Grrreat 2014 with plenty of Cigar meet-ups !!!

    A sensational time with plenty of cigars, booze and food. A bit crowded and smokey but what the heck, this is a cigar event. Check out the pictures and see that everyone had a good time. The cigar loot was a fantastic assortment. I came back with 34 cigars. By the way this was our last event for the year and we will resume again in early Jan with 2 events that month. Everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
