The Great Smoke 2022 – The Last Luau Tickets On Sale Now

November 12, 2021 By Matthew Tabacco

Doubling down on the ground-breaking success of 2021’s virtual-themed TGS event, Smoke Inn is set to expand our annual mega cigar event to accommodate cigar enthusiasts attending in-person AND at home, introducing The Great Smoke 2022: The Last Luau.

The past two years have ushered in unprecedented challenges, and The Great Smoke event has evolved to meet the needs of cigar hobbyists across the country. Therefore, the TGS 2022 event will combine the best of both virtual and in-person event formats, allowing for a unique and dynamic experience that all can participate part in, taking place on February 26, 2022.

As previously revealed, The Great Smoke 2022 will be themed Hawaiian Luau style, including tiki torches, kālua pig roasts, Hawaiian cocktails… the works! This theme makes its way into the TGS Luau Party Pack (identical for both in-person and at-home attendees), including an event hat, shirt, lei, draw-string back pack, tiki shot glass, cigar cutter, ashtray, Drew Estate spray paint can lighter, and 40 premium cigars from the industry’s top brands.

Event favorites Micahael Herklots and Kim Keeny will return as co-hosts joined by KMA Talk Radio personality Paul DeGrocco airing from the on-site TGS Studio. These “on air” portions of the event will be broken into five special segments throughout the day, interspersed with live footage and interaction with in- person attendees on the event floor. Prizes and raffles will be held hourly, with all ticket holders (in-person and virtual) automatically entered to win.

One of the most popular additions to 2021’s virtual event was the multitude of event-exclusive cigars. This returns for 2022’s The Last Luau, featuring unique and highly limited cigar projects by the likes of Aganorsa Leaf, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, Espinosa Premium Cigars, Room101, and ADV Cigars. Helping to ensure a fair and seamless launch for each project, these cigars will be offered through special virtual events, taking place throughout December, January, and February, where only event ticket holders will be granted access to purchase each limited cigar (TGS tickets must be purchased prior to each cigar launch in order to participate). Only 300 to 500 boxes/bundles of each project have been created—sold on a first come, first served basis.

TGS Event Exclusive Launch Schedule

Aganorsa Leaf: Wednesday, December 8th (7pm EST)
Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust: Wednesday, December 29th (7pm EST) Espinosa Premium Cigars: Wednesday, January 12th (7pm EST) Room101: Wednesday, January 26th (7PM EST)
ADV Cigars: Wednesday, February 9th (7pm EST)

The Great Smoke 2022: The Last Luau will begin on February 24th and continue through the 27th, with the main event being held on February 26, 2022. The event will, once again, be held at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach, FL. This includes pre-event (and post-event) parties hosted by Caldwell Cigar Co., Alec Bradley, HVC Cigars, and Rocky Patel. As has become tradition, The Red Meat Lover’s Club will host a private luau pre-event dinner for VIP ticket holders, where special guest Steve Saka will be in attendance with an exclusive cigar for dinner guests.
