Introduction to Smoklahoma 2019
Smoklahoma 2019 takes place on April 27th, 2019 in Oklahoma City, OK. The event is presented by ZT Cigars, a local cigar shop. Smokey Butts, Papa Butts, and I attended the event in 2017. The event was a fantastic regional event with great food and drinks, a new venue, premium cigars, and most importantly a unique opportunity to meet cigar manufacturers and mingle with fellow cigar lovers. A portion of the proceeds of Smoklahoma 2019 go to Fields & Futures. Fields & Futures is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help “Oklahoma City Public Schools put more students on a better path to graduation by growing sports participation at the middle school and high school levels.”
The event takes place at The Criterion, 500 E. Sheridan Ave., Oklahoma City, OK. The Criterion is located in Bricktown, Oklahoma City’s revitalized downtown area.
