    I'll be driving up from Hagerstown Maryland on 3/7 to attend the NYC Pipe show held in Newark NJ. Is anyone else attending? Or need to carpool?

    I am coming! I will have on my red Pipesmagazine.com t-shirt. And probably be smoking a huge Don Carlos. Do they have a smoking tent or is it just go outside?

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    I don't see anyone with a pipe in his mouth in these pictures so, knowing NJ, the answer to your question is likely no.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    I'll be driving from Albany, but I hope to get there in time.

    Remember, after the show, some of the guys head over to J-R Cigar in Whippany for food, drink, and smoking.

    The really tireless might wish to join me at the Stanhope House later that evening to see New Riders of the Purple Sage.

    Very easy for the local, but I will need to work that day. In addition, I'm trying to save myself for Chicago.

    Not really doing a great job with the non PAD discipline.

    No,smoking is not allowed in the venue, but there is a covered patio just outside the room.

    Last year a bunch of us did head to JR Cigars around 1 PM and hung out for a few hours (I have a three hour drive from there).

    I'll have on my brown Pipes Magazine shirt, so give me a shout!

    Do they also have a bordello just to make the outing a perfect day out?

    Uh, yeah - it's in Newark NJ........
    http://patch.com/new-jersey/newarknj/newark-unfriendliest-city-in-the-us--and-the-world--says-conde-nast
    So, to the uninitiated - DON'T venture into the city, nothing to see here, move along...
    (actually nearby Jersey City has a nice area. No, really)

    Last year, I met Dave Jacobsen at the show, he took the train. He said "the area doesn't look like it has much, is there anywhere else to go and hang out?". My answer: no, stay in the hotel. The nearby White Castle has 4" thick bullet-proof glass in front of the counter.

    Unfortunately I am not planning on attending this year. I'm just not up for the 4 hour drive each way. At least that's how I feel at the moment. I will miss not seeing all of my pipe friends, so the internet will have to be my socializing for now. Have a great time everyone, it's a fun filled day of buying/selling/bartering and good conversation. And like Al says, the restaurant is quite good. Their home made soups are outstanding.

    I'll be there with many of the fellas from the NY Pipe Club. Though it is not a NY Pipe Club show (it is the production of two individuals), we do support it.

    We'll miss you, Andy, please reconsider - don't get to see you enough! If not Newark, Chicago???

    As Jay mentioned, a bunch of us will be heading over to JR Cigar on Rt. 10 in Whippany, NJ for a night cap, you can smoke in the restaurant, there is live jazz and everyone is welcome to join us. We always have a great time there and the food is good.

    @Docwatson - too bad, I'll miss seeing you
    @Lou - I have always thought it was the NYC club show, thanks for clarifying. I edited the title to be correct.

    I didn't realize that smoking was allowed in the restaurant, or is that only in the evening? I need to head back to MD by end of the day (close to a four hour trip for me). So, I'll miss that.

    Should be a fun show.

    From what I remember from living in NJ for 35 years, Newark is a right friendly place.

    Looks like the big (record in some places) snow in the Northeast and many states is over, so tomorrow will be clear for driving to this show. It's bright and shiny this am, but durn cold. Hopefully the airplane clutter from yesterday's cancellations will be resolved by this evening. I'll have a carload of merry pipesters coming up for the festivities at the Show as well as afterwards at JR Cigars.

    Shaintiques - buddy RobertI and I connected and I'll bring him up too. Dunno exactly how he's getting back to Philly, but I'm sure those Vets are resourceful.

These are my personal pipes for smoking. Also got some pipes for trading or selling if anyone is interested. Dunhills, Sasienis, and a Stanwell.

    I had a blast at the show yesterday and got to see a lot of familiar faces and some new ones! I didn't find a pipe but managed to win another GBD 9438 (from Steve Fallon!) on the way home, thanks Ebay phone app!

    I never seem to be able to remember to take many pictures, but here's a few.

    I've been emailing "Ralph from NJ" for over year now and learned we have many mutual interests beside pipes. Ralph is a frequent contributor to the The Pipe Collector and I always enjoy his humorous stories. Ralph threatened to show up last year, but didn't make the event. The NASPC guys said he was "A ghost" and probably didn't really exist. Well, he came yesterday and here's a picture with him. I'm opening a new restaurant location near Ralph in May, so I hope to be able to spend some more time with him. That is Woodsroad (Dan) behind him.

    Dan from Gabrielle pipes and at the P&C table is seen shaking hands. Jon Guss is on he right.

    Jon Guss with my first Barlings. It is always fascinating to speak with Jon and learn more about his industry research.

    The Chesapeake club in the foreground.

    Brian Levine had one of the busiest tables, but I was able to catch a few moments with him.

    I had PM'd and even spoke via phone with Simon aka "Condorlover" who lives in NYC. I didn't know what he looked like and it didn't really register when he said hello to me and good-bye as I was leaving. On the four hour drive home, it dawned on me who he was. So, here is our picture...... DANG! Perhaps next year.

    This was the first pipe show I had ever gone to and I'm so glad I went. It was great to finally see a tangible section of the pipe community en masse. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. Meeting Russ Oulette was definitely a highlight, and hearing stories from all the vendors/carvers was awesome. I made some new friends, met a bunch of interesting people (condorlover, shantiques, 7ach and others), and got a new pipe as well! Thanks to everyone who organized the show and made it a great place for a first-timer.
