The planets lined up this year, and our monthly meeting at the Pen & Pencil Club is next week on Wednesday. The food, cooked to order, is the best deal in Philly, and the bar is well stocked and friendly. Venues where we can puff, eat, converse and have libations are rare it seems. We have plenty of room to handle the 15-30 pipers, and the club even likes us. We are quite fortunate. Guests are welcome and membership dues are nonexistent.
