jpmcwjr I am in the south burbs. There is a fairly decent tobacco shop near me, although it's mostly aimed at cigars. Any suggestions would be welcome.

jpmcwjr That looks like a great suggestion. Thanks!
winton, I looked up the club based on someone else's suggestion. I didn't see anything about joining on the site. Would I just show up?

Yup, Just come to a meeting. Time and location are usually up on the site linked above or the facebook page. Most of the time, it's the third Saturday of the month 8pm at 8 to 8 cigar in Villa Park, but there are exceptions - so check ahead.
If you want to kill two birds with one drive; there is a social smoke for the club at Iwan Ries on 7/27 starting around 2pm.

The CPCC has official meetings at 8 to 8. The dues are $10 each meeting, except for December. No dues for first time visitors. Occasionally, there will be pizza provided. Members get a cigar at their birthday month meeting. We range in age from 18+ to 70's or more. Occasionally, a woman or two will join us. Below is a actual conversation a couple years ago:
"Guys, behave tonight. We have a woman with us."
"Don't worry, I work at a prison."
"That's why you look so familiar!"

I now own a meerschaum pipe, my newest addition to my collection (this makes four pipes). It seems to smoke very differently than my other three briars, especially since it doesn't have a filter. Anything I should know about it? It came with care instructions, so I am not concerned with that. Just wondering if there are any "tricks" to smoking it.
