I know payless pipes is in a mall down there. Weirdly enough they are closed weekends if I remember. There is a nice one in Covington out side of New Orleans named Jewels Briar that is nice.

Wow, big news. I saw recently the battle had heated up. I'm familiar with where the new site is, but not with parking around that area. Do they have their own lot?

There is a lot across the street that is $10 a day. Or you can just park at Harrahs and put the card in a machine for 15 minutes (dont even have to put money in) and you get free parking for 24 hours.

We made it, work delayed our leaving Maryland on Tuesday evening, so we just drove straight down on Wednesday, 16 hours on the road. I'll see everyone Friday night at Mannings!

Excellent, be sure to introduce yourself! I went to the meet and greet this evening, but it was outside in an open area and after 7 it was cool and very windy, so we didn't stay long. Hopefully the sun will be shining tomorrow.

I don't recall seeing Hermit, hope that I didn't miss you.  

Somehow, I did miss a picture with Pylorns - but it was great to meet you.  

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 Ducote 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 (PipesMagazine):
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 Hamrick, pipe carver and 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






Two PipesMagazine.com members,  Voohees and Cosmicfolklore - just terrific guys.



Toby D, the show organizer 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????  All three moderators of the PipesMagazine.com forum were at the show. I'm sure chaos ensued on the forum.
