Do you guys foresee there being any big smokes in San Francisco anytime soon...I believe there have been several there in the past(?).

I would think that highly unlikely to happen.

I agree, but it's happened in the past. And to be honest, with all the wealth in Silicon Valley and in the Bay Area in general, I think it could be a big success.

If the city of SF had a problem with a couple of hundred cigar smokers congregating, how about holding the Big Smoke on Alcatraz Island. Maybe in the old prison itself!


Supercharged is currently under moderator censorship for no good reason.

I know this is an older thread, but the California smoking laws make holding a Big Smoke impossible. I don't think CA would hold it outdoors, and even finding a city that would allow it in the Bay area could be tough.

They did hold some in San Francisco during the cigar fad of the mid 1990s.

I would be shocked to ever see another major cigar event take place in the city by the bay.

The last one I remember in San Fran was back in 1995 or 1996. It was a great Big Smoke. Sadly, the change in California smoking laws made it very hard for us to do the event there again.
