I’ll be there. In Thursday afternoon, out Monday morning. Really looking forward to it; a highlight of my pipe-year.

So where are we meeting up pre/post show? I will be there with my wife Saturday and Sunday. We will be at the Golden Knights game Saturday night as well if anyone else is going.

We don't have any kind of formal meeting plans. Just look for guys smoking pipes and say "Hi". During the show on Saturday there is a large room off the main exhibition floor where people congregate to smoke, and share tobaccos, and talk shit, and enjoy a drink or ten. You will likely find some of us there, passed out on, or under, the tables. Same thing on Sunday.

In year's past there was an Irish Pub that served as an unofficial gathering spot for a lot of us. But the remodeling did away with that. Last year a lot of the guys gathered in the sports book at night to visit, smoke, and have a drink. Who knows where people will gather this year? But sable's right. Just follow your nose. You'll find us.

The remodel wasn't completed when we were there last year, so who knows, maybe there will be a new place to congregate this year.

I'm going to make it this year. I have to wait for the wife to get off of work so we won't arrive until about 10:30 PM on Friday. My wife has never been to Vegas so I'll be booking somewhere on the strip so she can see all the lights and festivities.

I'm looking forward to meeting some of you over a pipe and an adult beverage.

If anyone wants advice on cheap food and beer, head to Ellis Island Casino - a block off the strip. Their steak breakfast is about $7 and they have their own brewery so all of their beers are $2.50. Their steak is great for the price and their beer is great. Awesome staff too. I haven’t found anything better at that price point.

Providence for the pipes: they belonged to Rex Poggenpohl. A pic of Rex, my wife, and myself:

My lovely and wonderful wife gave me my Christmas present early which is this stunning meer from carver Ismail Celebi:

Made it through the room once and now relaxing in the lounge. Going back soon to try and find a unique artisan pipe but there are two Tinsky estates and another Savinelli I saw so...

Sounds good. Heck, I can't always get to the pipe show in town, but I know Vegas will be fun. The lore always was that you could get a good big breakfast for practically nothing because the casinos wanted to get the players energized. Is that still true? Was it ever?
