I am going to Vegas the week of June 14-20 and staying at Excalibur. Where can I smoke cigars in the casino? I see on their website it says cigars are prohibited in the sports book and the poker room. Where CAN I smoke a cigar?

Any and all gaming areas... As in not at eateries or in the elevator or hotel hallways. Excalibur and its anti-cigar attitude in the book are the exception, many (most?) will allow you to smoke in the book.

With all that said, be courteous. Don't walk up to a crowded table or a seat in a book near a bunch of people and smoke your cigar. Claim your own seat, light up, then make people decide to sit there anyways even with you smoking. Cigars, are only enjoyed by the one smoking in my experience... I say that as a casual cigar smoker.

Additionally, MGM is nearby. Much better sports book (nicer, but excal has a ton of seats). I frequent that area of the strip often, if you have any questions please PM me.

A few doors down, Monte Carlo has an actual Cigar bar.

Cigars? Cigarettes? Tiparillos? Anyone old enough to remember those TV commercials? How about Muriel cigars with the Adams sisters?

I'm getting back into pipe-smoking, now. Cherry-Vanilla Cavendish. I'm really digging it because I've actually gotten multiple compliments, just in the last 36 hours...from multiple strangers...about how my pipe smells good.

It has been a while since I've been in ExCal, I guess about a year and a half, but my recollection is that they did have a portion of the casino gaming floor and some slots marked off as being a non-smoking area at that time. Only a portion. Most of it (and the most busy parts that you'd most likely be in) was smoking. At that time there were ashtrays within yards of the rail of the poker room and just outside the book, though not in them, IIRC.

Wuss. Come back when you graduate to some nice real English blends without the fruity perfumed flavors.

This is the one I remember

the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

Like it was yesterday! That was Edie Adams. There was three Adams sisters and she was the most popular and the most known. I think they were real sisters but you never know with Hollywood. Their first names all started with the Letter E.
