    More Big News!!!! How does a tour by Mark Ryan to his Perique Factory sound? You will get to see how Perique is processed and barreled, tour this historic facility, and touch and smell the actual leaves. What if it also included a tasting of some special D&R pipe tobacco? What if I said we will also have an opportunity to do our own custom blending, guided by Mr Mark Ryan himself and have a great southern style lunch to finish it off? Sound fun??? Well, on Friday, Oct 2nd from 9-3 that's exactly what we will be doing to "Kick-Off" the 2015 New Orleans Pipe Show!!!

    So plan to come in early!!! There will be limited space on this tour!!! Registration for the tour will be done through our website at http://www.nolapipeshow.com. The site should be online in the next couple of weeks. We have 55 available spots for the tour, it will be on a first come basis. Once it fills up, I will start a waiting list for a possible 2nd grouping. Cost for this exciting outing will be $35.

    Excellent creativity. This is how "management" is supposed to function. I hope you will be in contact with Rick Newcombe who has excellent contacts in the Danish pipe establishment. Those folks have no idea what NO is about. Restaurant and entertainment guides would be very helpful, too.

    For all who want to attend the New Orleans Pipe Show I would strongly recommend you check out http://www.neworleansonline.com and while there request a Visitors Guide sent to you from http://www.neworleansonline.com/tools/signup.php

    BTW ... for the bus ride, I am assuming there will be a bus for the journey will we be allowed some of NoLa's finest on the bus like some Abita Amber or maybe some NOLA Blond or Brown or possibly a bottle of Old New Orleans Amber rum??? Just thought I would ask.

    Also there will be smoking aloud on the bus for sure right? Once again just thought I would ask.

    Sounds like a great day ... can ya puts me on the list before registration opens. If'n ya can lets just say now that there will only be 54 available spots now open.

    Oh yeah ... also can we pay with vintage tobacco? I have about 12 pounds of vintage Lane 1Q I could pay with and it is still as factory moist as when I bought it 12 or 13 years ago.

    Yes I have contracted with a Tour bus company for the ride there and back...it's right at a 1 hour ride from the casino. There will definitely be iced cold new orleans beverages for the bus ride....sadly none of the tour bus companies allow smoking on their buses.... But we will get lots of smoking in once we arrive at the Factory....ok between you and cosmic...we are down to 53 lol

    BTW I had some of the best chicken and sausage gumbo today, along with some amazing butter beans and a side of fried catfish when I spent the day with Mark Ryan today working out the details...Mmmm great tobacco and great home cooked Southern food shared with 55 pipe smoking brothers...like the Mastercard commercial says...Priceless

    Toby, put me down for the trip to the Perique plantation. I won't need the bus as I will be driving through St James Parish. I'm going to be staying in the Warehouse District and walking over to the show on Saturday.

    Drago's Friday night?

    i have a list going and anyone that's asked, is on my list. That being said, anyone going on the tour, whether on my list or not, must still officially register once the site is active. There will be a BIG announcement as soon as the site goes live, in addition to little tidbits that we are keeping as a surprise

    Why Drago's just on Friday night? Why Drago's for lunch on Thursday in Metarie on the way in from the airport and for appetizers on Friday before going to Jacque Imo's and then again for a dozen Charbroiled after the show on Saturday before Toups Meatery but on Sunday forget Drago's entirely because 4 days in a row is just wrong but Drago's on Monday for a late lunch in Meterie of Charbroiled and big ole bowl of red beans and rice on the way to the airport.

    @Newbie, there is no way I can go to NOLA and not have lunch at Parkway Tavern & Bakery on that Saturday. The place is an institution with locals. Make that one large sloppy roast beef po-boy, dressed! May have to do Drago's Saturday night

    Parkway aint bad but for PoBoy's ya just can't beat Crabby Jacks.

    http://crabbyjacksnola.com/

    Nobody in the city does a Slow Roasted Duck or a Cochon de Lait like they do. I just wish they still did the rabbit po-boy. Also if ya wants a fried shrimp or a fried oyster or a combo of both you'll get almost enough shrimps and oysters where you almost have an entire meal without even touching the bread. That and a cold bottle of Abita Root Beer makes for a great lunch type appetizer for the rest of the day.

    I'm sorry but anyplace that has moved and is under new management to me cannot be considered "Old School" and needs to basically start all over again from the bottom. If they are good they will quickly climb from the denizens of the bottom but will be a long time till they reach the "Old School" category or sit atop the established places after starting over again under new management in a totally different location.

    But if ya wants Johnie and Frankies than by all means be sure you get enough for everyone???

    Nope I didn't realize they had moved and changed hands so I will prolly just stick to and Oyster bar some where off the beaten path and find me a good hot sausage po'boy for dinner.. I'm thinking oysters and Glenlivet.

    Excuse a comment from a non-gourmet, but if the chef and cooks are the same at the new location, wouldn't the food be just as good? Why not follow the reviews from now to September? Would you experienced guys allow some of us strangers to tag along with you for the gastronomic delights?

    This place was kind of like a "Cheers" kind of joint. It was in this neighborhood area just looked like an old house or something. When the atmosphere changes in a place that's a local intuition it really kid of kills 1/2 the vibe.

    And I can't speak for everyone who knows the NOLA area but yea you're welcome to tag along. I love New Orleans for the food as much as the music and people.

    Guys we may have to turn this into a week long party...here's my proposed agenda....wake up, smoke a bowl, coffee, smoke a bowl, breakfast, smoke a few bowls, lunch, nap, more bowls, dinner, bowls, drinks, bowls....and just repeat this until we hit every restaurant possible...

    Here is one of my favorite French Quarter restaurant for breakfast...the best coffee in the city, if not the world, and scrambled eggs and boudin sausage that is better than my grandmother could make..God rest her soul and may her ghost please not haunt me for stating the truth

    The best Italian food you will get..outside of going to Italy...

    Tony Angelos a Restaurant...it's about 15 minutes outside of New Orleans in Metairie...located in an old New Orleans family neighborhood...never any tourists...its a locals place and most night there's about ten, 75+ year olds sitting at the bar drinking wine, and eating pasta...including my father-in-law. The best thing "not" on the menu, is to ask the waiter to "let Uncle Tony Feed me"...I just hope you hadn't eaten for a few days bc you are about to sample EVERYTHING he has cooked that night!!!

    I think you should have plenty of fun with that budget Fish...but make sure you designate pipe money and play money :). Btw let me know which other pipe you had your eye on and I can do some special pricing for you if you want it for Christmas...

    Frankie & Johnny's, gosh hadn't thought of them in forever. If I going to have lunch in the Quarter, chances are it would be Napoleon House, street side table with Pim's Cup and pipe in mouth.

    I have a school buddy that swears by Domelecies' for po-boys.

    Luke does a very nice Couchon De Lait sandwich. I wouldn't call it a po-boy, different bread.

    Oh yeah ... Tony Angelo's. I was so glad that place reopened after the levy broke. It's hard to believe that place was basically underwater where it is. I'll never forget the dinner a couple dozen of us had there one night when all of a sudden all of us at one time just began to chant ... Feed Us ... Feed Us ... Feed Us ... awhile later when some were starting to hope it was all over the plates just kept coming and then when even more of us hoped it was all over even more plates came out and then when we were all properly stuffed to the point of plumpness it was time for the deserts. I don't think any of us at all went for our 2am Cafe du Monde visit that night.

    My Doctor has recently informed me that both pipe smoking and over glutenous eating and alcohol consumption which is exactlyh what happens in NoLa is bad for my health so is there a possible chance that on the registration page you can have a selection for a new Doctor?

    Toby, do I have to take the bus? I don't mind paying the full fee, I just don't want to come that Friday downriver only to take a bus back up river. Can I just met y'all there?
