A little while ago there was talk amongst a few fellow Florida smokers of getting together. I am back in Lutz so if anyone wants to get together for a bowl and even a beer I am open to saying 'Hi'!
So the guy blew you?I'd like to meet @condorlover1 when he returns to the UK...
@condorlover1 I'm still smoking Captain Black at the moment but not smoking anything tomorrow, as I'm going to visit Mum and Dad.
Not smoked anything today unless you count the homeless man I gave one of my spare pipes and a few bowls of tobacco when he blew me a bit of pipe smoke, does this count?
See u thereWe just completed all the remodeling on our Florida home, I will be there before Nov 15. If we can't find or agree on a place to meet, I'll host a get together at the new home in Sarasota. I would propose meeting at a cigar shop in Ybor City followed by dinner at Columbia Restaurant which is about 5 blocks down the street. Regardless, I'd like to have some fellow pipe smokers down to the house sometime. I've seen discussions here about getting together numerous times but very little actual action. I'm going to schedule something and if some people decide to show up, great.
Tragic name for 2020The cigar shop I was thinking of is King Corona. Has a nice and reasonably large smoking area, hey also serve alcohol and food. Very nice cigar selection with most of the difficult to find Fuente stuff if you're into that. And I personally found Columbia Restaurant to be fantastic.
@hoosierpipeguy : Thank you for being an absolute star. It would be wonderful to meet you since we have often thought of running into each other at a pipe show and then this Bat Flu stuff happened. There was some talk amongst a couple of the locals a few months ago but then I was summoned out of town and I think things got swallowed up by the summer.
Edward's pipe shop is amazing and in the Tampa area.
Mark, give a shout when you are coming to Sarasota. I'm only about 5 miles from your place. We can hit all the good pubs and cigar / pipe friendly places!
