Event Strategy

Smokey and I have been a number of Big Smoke events over the years and have learned a few things that might make your experience more enjoyable. When the doors open, the masses take their cigar coupon book and head off to get their free cigars wandering from booth to booth. The lines are long and your time goes fast. By the time you finish getting your cigars, the food and alcohol are mostly gone. I recommend you head over to the food and drink first. Then, go to the cigar booth with the shortest line and grab a cigar. Smoke the cigar on the patio. Then, after the crowd dies down a bit, pick up your cigars.
