Jesus has left Chicago, but THIS bus is leaving New Orleans. The Perique tour is rolling! (from the Facebook page). My daughter is taking us to the Mardi Gras museum....

That's me on the far right in a straw hat. Shain and I were trash texting Bradley the Cajun on the bis ride.

Mark Ryan gave us each a barrel of perique. This one is mine!!!

That old room smelled awesome.
A Big thanks to Toby for getting this all together and to Mark for getting his associates to stuff 700 baggies of various tobaccos. :puffy:

It was nice to meet you folks at the Meet & Greet. I wish it wasn't so cold and windy, that's tough pipe smoking weather. See you Sat AM!

Went to the New Orleans Pipe Show and came home with two tins of Penzance and this beautiful Zack Hamric pipe that I promise will be slowly broken in.

I was eyeballing that one Pappymac!
Wow, where to start. I just came home from the show and we're heading back out to watch LSU football somewhere shortly.
I've been to a number of shows and I have to say this show was the most fun I've had at a pipe event. Toby D and the NOLA pipe club outdid themselves. The new venue was quite simply fantastic. I can't imagine Harrah's being anywhere near as convenient and accommodating. The vendor list was impressive and we had plenty of room. Smoking on the attached patio was fantastic, sofa's, tables, just terrific.
Forum members:

I hope that I don't forget anyone but I met: Ryan Alden (Lonestar). Shantiques and Voorhees - guys it was a real pleasure to share a pipe with you. Cosmic and his wife. Toby of course. Zack Hamrick and Greta. Pappymac (club member). I even met my neighbor - jmiller at the show, neither of us knew the other was going!
I messaged Ryan Alden before the showing and asked if he has one of his famous Author shapes - he sure did and it was a rare smooth. Yep, I feel prey immediately. I enjoyed the pipe at the show and I love all aspects of this one. That blew most of my show funds, but if you have to go, go with an Alden, right?






Below are some show shots

Ryan and a guy who bought one of blowfish shapes.


Russ O and a few vendors.

Zack, a real cool cat! Somehow I missed the delightful Greta.

Sid and Sue from the Magnolia Pipe Club (Jackson MS). A very gracious couple! Sid won the slow smoke contest on a very windy evening,easily outpacing the field.

Jesse Jones, carver and Smokers Haven associate.

The show floor




Members Voohees and Cosmicfolklore - just terrific guys.

Toby and myself.

Happy guy who bought a pair of Reddog pipes, Basil Meadows. (a real gentleman)

Dr. Detroit. Er, no, Doctor Brian Levine.

And, who's watching the shop???? I teased Jason and Shantiques that they should post some theads about religion AND politics this afternoon....

It was a genuine pleasure on my part as well. Everyone I met was like meeting an old friend. I could do that all the time. Props to all the guys who made it happen. I have pictures that I'll post when I get back.

Toby and the gang did a fantastic job!

I'll leave New Orleans a little lighter on cash, but so very glad I came. Everything about this show was absolutely top notch.
