Been a long time pipe admirer and only smoking for the last 3 years or so. Have fallen in love with it. Found this forum while seeking some help with a recent family gift. Will post to the Meerschaum pipe forum under pipe talk.
welcome from NE-Central Iowa!

well welcome.. we have many members from your area.
Have you been to Iwan Ries? It's well worth the trip and hellacious parking.
Pre-Covid (such a common term these days) I worked in the city, so I went to Iwan and Ries pretty much twice a month and sat in the cigar lounge and drank with buddies there. Its one of our favorite past times. I also enjoy cigars (not as much as some of my other friends.) I have met some wonderful individuals over time at IR in the lounge. Probably most favorite winter activity.

Welcome, from Chicago.
Are you aware of the Chicago Pipe collectors Club? We have been meeting recently at the Arlington Pipe and Cigar Lounge, in Arlington Heights. We had also been meeting at 8to8 in Villa Park until the pandemic.
Contact our Secretary, Amu Torres, who also works at Arlington and has redesigned and expanded the pipes and tobaccos section of the store. Introduce yourself and tell her Dino sent you. amujtorres@gmail.com

Welcome from a native of one of the bordering suburbs of Chicago, within walking distance of the outer boroughs. There used to be a good pipe shop, The Park Ridge Pipe Shop, with a pipe carver and amazing inventory, many years ago, just backing up the commuter line. Now from central N.C.
