    They do have TV's in the shop so I would imagine so but I have no authority to make it happen nor can I promise that it will.

    I've always been mystified by the term "trunk show." Does that mean the merchandise being offered arrives in trunks? I wouldn't ask except that I have been puzzling over this wording for eons. Sounds like an intriguing event. Take, or don't take, your credit card, depending on your intentions. Here we go:

    Aug 2, 2010 ... A typical trunk show is when the fashion designer or vendor brings their line to a boutique for a special in-shop showing for the store's customers (the items used to be carried in a trunk, thus the name).

    ...probably the carvers sell their pipes and the venue gets a commission for hosting and publicizing the event, I'd guess.

    and with the "new and much improved management" hoping to drum up some returning customers and/or bring awareness to the central Ohio pipe community that a pipe shop still exists in the area and isn't just a cigar shop with a few bulk house blends and a half dozen random tins to choose from.

    No promises needed. I was half jokingly asking. I may and try to make it up? It sounds interesting. The Bengals are off that day so the Browns should be on regular network?
