    Unconventional Pipe Racks / Displays

    That's a weird euphemism.

    First Smoke on the New Porch!

    Still cold out, but we enjoyed cigars from what will become our closest B&M when we move up this way. The Happy Piper in Janesville, WI.

    The 2024 United Pipe Clubs of America National Pipe Smoking Contest information

    I will probably get roped into being a table judge again this year. I take bribes and don't read the rules very carefully. Let's make a champion the Chicago Way!

    Unconventional Pipe Racks / Displays

    There's that steakhouse in New York City that has all the clays in the rafters.

    Oldest Smoked Tobacco...

    At the 2019 Chicago Pipe Show I was handed a cigarette from a cutter top can. Probably 1950's vintage. It tasted like the best virginia blend I'd ever had and smoked like a cigar. At one point I had an inch long ash. On a cigarette.

    First Smoke on the New Porch!

    I can probably pull that off, so long as you're willing to wait for the built in cabinet pics. I'm on the hook for all the trim carpentry and cabinetry in the house and that one is way down on the priority list. First is the staircase that has to be done to get an occupancy permit.

    First Smoke on the New Porch!

    I am fortunate indeed. Yes, it's a whole new home build. Trying to make it as energy efficient and healthy as we can now, so that we can afford to live here in retirement.

    First Smoke on the New Porch!

    In about 8 months time, this will be a covered porch with sunset views. Just through the door behind me will be a built in display cabinet for my wife's and my pipes and tobaccos. Right now it's cold and the ground is uneven and littered with framing cut offs, but I can already feel myself...

    Does anyone recognize this insignia?

    You've got me, there.

    Does anyone recognize this insignia?

    Currently, yes. But the Anderson 's were/have been at it for a long time. It's possible that they've changed their stamp. Contact Rose at Pipes and Pleasures in Columbus, OH and ask if she recognizes it as an older stamp.

    2024 Chicagoland International Pipe and Tobacciana Show

    My wife is the treasurer of the UPCA, so I'm really just following her to the show.

    New Stokkebye Night Slice Blend

    I just picked up a couple ounces of this at a B&M while visiting my father. Is this just the bulk release of the "Special Reserve Peaty Kentucky", which was itself maybe just a particularly flavorful batch of MacBaren's Stockton?

    Anyone Gonna Be Watching Tucker's Interview With Vladimir Putin?

    His own legal defense in a defamation case was that "no one should take what he says seriously", so I don't. He is not a journalist and his show is not a journalistic endeavor. It exists on a scale from commentary to clowning. If you are watching purely for entertainment, you are enriching an...

    Buying Multiples of the Same Pipe

    It's a decent hedge against the vagaries of briar, particularly if you have a favorite shape. I've bought and held for far too long pipes that I was very attracted to aesthetically, but weren't good smokers for one reason or another.

    What does "K" markings mean on castello smooth pipes?

    Can it really be considered "luxury" if you don't have to set up a prism array or home radio-spectroscopy imager just to read the stamp forwards?

    My First German Pipe

    I have a Design Berlin that I like quite a bit. https://pipedia.org/wiki/Design_Berlin

    Green Bay, Wisconsin, Meetup?

    In the SE corner The Milwaukee Pipe Club meets every Sunday around 4pm in Oak Grove and is awesome.

    Green Bay, Wisconsin, Meetup?

    I didn't think they had a lounge attached to the retail space, but if anyone in Green Bay has ever planned a cigar dinner or other smoking event, it'd be them. Drop 'em a line and ask.
