New Orleans Pipe Show Takes Over Harrahs Casino
The New Orleans Pipe Club is excited to announce that the 2015 New Orleans Pipe Show will be held Oct 3, 2015 at Harrahs Hotel and Casino located at 228 Poydras Street. The show will actually be held on the casino floor, in the Masquerade Night Club!!!! There will be gaming, drinking, flat screen TVs showing football, and YES smoking allowed the entire time throughout the show.
Harrahs Casino is located in the heart of downtown New Orleans at the foot of Canal Street. It is walking distance to some of New Orleans' great restaurants, and dozens of budget priced hotels surround the casino if you chose not to stay at the casino that are less than 3 minutes walking distance. You are 5 minutes walking distance from The Aquarium of the Americas, Canal Place Shopping Center, and The French Quarter!!!
That's right you can walk to all of New Orleans' great attractions from the show. So, if you drive, park your car and forget about it till its time to leave, and if you fly, forget about renting a car, you won't need it...you can walk or take the street car to just about any place your heart desires!!!

That sounds like a heck of a time. I will have to put in for some vacation and try and get down to that. Never been to New Orleans so it would be a great time. Thanks for the info.

It's a whole new pipe show concept. The only one I've heard of where you can smoke on the exhibit floor.

Trust NOLA to capture the moment.

Not really, the short lived Gulf Shore show was in a boat casino. Next weeks Vegas and February's Gateway show are also smoke friendly venues.

I hope this show can catch on, generate some local interest and become a regular event. 8O

Thanks Al...yes we are still working on how many vendor tables we can comfortably fit into the space...we should have a firm number in the next few weeks, but like Pylorns said at least 60, and we are hoping for 100..

The wife and I are already planning on this. Went down to the Gulf mid October and the weather is great. Gives more reason to go to this.

Impressive job! I spoke with many vendors already, and the word is out, this is gonna be great. The one thing that really works is that, there is so much to do in that area of town! This is an experience and will attract all sorts of folks because of where it is located. I am really looking forward to it.
