I know Brian is in town on Thursday, anyone else? We're having dinner/watching the Ravens/Steelers at the daughters early in the evening. I might be up for a beverage later - anyone else hanging Thursday evening?
I popped over to the Tinder Box in Metarie this morning. Larry and crew are always welcoming. The President o the Magnolia Pipe Club (Jackson MS) stopped by with his wife, nice folks! I picked up a tin of this, some bulk MM965 (3 oz, not 5 lbs!)and some cigars for the SIL. Larry will have a number of these tins at the show.
Looks like Al bought the last of the Penzance at the Tinderbox. Or he put some back for the show. Overall nice selection in there. I'm actually staying a mile from there and seeing his post went to check it out. Bought some Brickhouse cigars since he had my preferred type. Anyway best variety I have experienced in a Tinderbox especially in the pipe tin selection.
I've been hanging with a whole group of pipe smoker in the French Quarter. We took over some tables and perique'd up Jackson Square. It's like pipes everywhere. And, transexuals, or just really tall hookers. Cant tell.
Ok guys..I think we are all set...meet and greet Friday night 5 till..whenever at Mannings Restaurant in the courtyard...btw there will be a long smoke contest beginning at 7pm...for anyone interested...
