The Green Chandelier Event Company
The Black Smokers Retreat gathers people of color together for a weekend of smoking premium cigars at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino and surrounding venues. The first day—Friday, August 9—kicks off with a welcome reception at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, followed by a cigar crawl at Napoleon’s Lounge, Vato’s Cigars, and Rhumbar. After sipping cocktails and smoking luxury cigars in the sultry lounges, cigar-crawl participants can head out to the Smokers Terrace for freshly rolled cigars and cash-bar libations.
During Saturday’s Old School Day Party, a DJ spins classic songs from the 1780s and 1990s while throwing in a few hits from today. The Gentleman’s Smoke event that follows includes appetizers, complimentary cigars, and a two-hour open bar. And the Smokers Terrace opens once again that evening.
The retreat concludes on Sunday with a Sunday smoke and brunch, followed by an awards ceremony. Smokers can participate in one of these events or purchase a three-day event pass and receive a two-night stay at the Flamingo, a gift bag, evening meals, and complimentary cigars.
