    Just curious about who's coming down for the show? Really excited about this one- it's been 15 years since I've been in the French Quarter...and Greta has never been there....Should be a great party!

    I am! Can't wait!

    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 am going to be there and will be the guy with a chip on his shoulder, smoking an aromatic to spite the latakia lovers. Just look for the guy puffing out luxurious clouds of cherry infused caramel smelling smoke and pulling a Radio Flyer wagon filled with Molto Dolce and Cherrybomb.

    I'll be leaving my wife at home just in case the Molto Dolce lady is there. Who needs Ashley Madison when you've got caramel and vanilla having pillow fights on your tongue and Ms. Molto Dolce taking your pipe up to her room.

    We shotgunned it down here today with a load of furniture for the daughter and just arrived at the daughters house (16 hour drive). I'll be at the meet & greet on Friday evening and at the show on Saturday. So, all three mods will be at the same show - a first I believe! I met Toby D last year and I'll look forward to meeting the other forum members who are attending.

    16 hours on the road yestserday, but this is the view from my daughters condo. Too bad you can't smoke in the Riverboat Casino (Treasure Chest) anymore! (at least I think you can't)

    I popped over to the Tinder Box in Metarie this morning. Larry and crew are always welcoming. The President o the Magnolia Pipe Club (Jackson MS) stopped by with his wife, nice folks! I picked up a tin of this, some bulk MM965 (3 oz, not 5 lbs!)and some cigars for the SIL. Larry will have a number of these tins at the show.

    Looks like Al bought the last of the Penzance at the Tinderbox. Or he put some back for the show. Overall nice selection in there. I'm actually staying a mile from there and seeing his post went to check it out. Bought some Brickhouse cigars since he had my preferred type. Anyway best variety I have experienced in a Tinderbox especially in the pipe tin selection.

    I've been hanging with a whole group of pipe smoker in the French Quarter. We took over some tables and perique'd up Jackson Square. It's like pipes everywhere. And, transexuals, or just really tall hookers. Cant tell.

    Went to the New Orleans Pipe Show and came home with two tins of Penzance and this beautiful Zack Hamric pipe that I promise will be slowly broken in.

    I was eyeballing that one Pappymac!

    Wow, where to start. I just came home from the show and we're heading back out to watch LSU football somewhere shortly.

    I've been to a number of shows and I have to say this show was the most fun I've had at a pipe event. Toby D and the NOLA pipe club outdid themselves. The new venue was quite simply fantastic. I can't imagine Harrah's being anywhere near as convenient and accommodating. The vendor list was impressive and we had plenty of room. Smoking on the attached patio was fantastic, sofa's, tables, just terrific.

    Forum members:
    I hope that I don't forget anyone but I met: Ryan Alden (Lonestar). Shantiques and Voorhees - guys it was a real pleasure to share a pipe with you. Cosmic and his wife. Toby of course. Zack Hamrick and Greta. Pappymac (club member). I even met my neighbor - jmiller at the show, neither of us knew the other was going!

    I messaged Ryan Alden before the showing and asked if he has one of his famous Author shapes - he sure did and it was a rare smooth. Yep, I feel prey immediately. I enjoyed the pipe at the show and I love all aspects of this one. That blew most of my show funds, but if you have to go, go with an Alden, right?



    Below are some show shots

    Ryan and a guy who bought one of blowfish shapes.

    Russ O and a few vendors.

    Zack, a real cool cat! Somehow I missed the delightful Greta.

    Sid and Sue from the Magnolia Pipe Club (Jackson MS). A very gracious couple! Sid won the slow smoke contest on a very windy evening,easily outpacing the field.

    Jesse Jones, carver and Smokers Haven associate.

    The show floor


    Members Voohees and Cosmicfolklore - just terrific guys.

    Toby and myself.

    Happy guy who bought a pair of Reddog pipes, Basil Meadows. (a real gentleman)

    Dr. Detroit. Er, no, Doctor Brian Levine.

    And, who's watching the shop???? I teased Jason and Shantiques that they should post some theads about religion AND politics this afternoon....

    I was like a kid in the candy shop. Sorry I missed you, SSJones!

    Toby that was a GREAT show ! I've been to a bunch of shows, and the atmosphere here was fantastic. The fact that turnout was good after all the last minute changes is really a testament to how much everyone involved put into the show. I hope we can keep growing this and see even more people make the trip next year.
    It was awesome to meet all of you at the show, I really had a blast !
