Some questions regarding this show:
1) If I am not mistaken, is this not THE show in pipes and pipe tobaccos in the US?
2) How many vendors? How many visitors?
3) Do they have "events," or workshops, or classes, or guest speakers?
4) Is EVERBODY there, such as Erik Nording, Will Purdy, Greg Pease, Tom Eltang and Sven Bang? How about JM Boswell?

I have never been to a pipe show, and as a native Alaskan, I have never been east of Colorado. I REALLY want to visit Chicago, eat amazing Italian food, and watch kick ass blues bands in dive bars. Throw in a pipe show, and it would probably be EPIC!

If some of you have been to the show, maybe you could share two or three of your favorite things about it!

Thanks in advance,

Trout Bum

this is far and away the best and most exciting time. I have been to every show since 97 and I must say, every time has been an event! a couple years ago I saw bo nordh rolling out of the bar area and a very pretty lady walked by and we both paused and watched her walk down the hall, he turned to me and said something I won't repeat! I agreed with him emphatically and he laughed! you must go! its the pipesmokers mecca! bring lots of cash! I always spend too much though!

its held just outside of chitown in st. charles. good italian food, you say? chicago is the best area in the world for pizza! there is a small pizza place called waynes that is in arlington heights which is about 20 miles n of the resort and as a native chicagoan I must say its the best pizza I've ever had! I will be driving up there again this year! to all those who have never been, isn't it time? this year should be the year you attend!

"Chicago-style pizza" is certainly delicious. When I get to Chicago, my cardiologist will put a down payment on a condo after all the deep-dish I'm going to put away and wash down with Old Style. It's a beautiful thing.

(It's just not pizza.)

Lot's of seminars. A golf outing. Pipe making seminar prior to the main show. Some sort of show related event from the Wednesday before till the Monday after. Don't forget organized events and shopping for the better-half's that might not smoke a pipe.

I'll have to start playing the lottery to see if'n I could win some cash to go. Very Happy

Actually, I was thinking that I'll start saving for the Richmond show in October.

I'll be there Thursday afternoon to Sunday late morning.
Can't wait!
Picking up a few commissioned pipes from JT Cooke and Per Hansen, and on the hunt for a couple others.
Bringing some very rare pipes and tobaccos for some good old horse trading!

I've convinced my wife that we needed to hit Chicago for the "Cubs/Marlins Series" that weekend... Once we are there, we will just happen to notice that there is the pipe show going on, & well, we will HAVE to stop by. Muhahahahaha Twisted Evil

I look forward to meeting many of you there.The chairman of the show posted a
few facts today;there will be 315 tables,if you stop at each table for 1 minute that
will take 5 hours!Wear comfortable shoes,take lots of coffee breaks and have a plan.
They give you a map of the tables when you walk in,so figure out who you want to see first,second,ect.
I bring a shoulder bag for a laptop computer to put my stuff in,when it gets full I go
out to my car and empty it out.No good walking around with your arms full of goodies all day.
I go first to MacBaren and Samuel Gawith to make sure I get the limited edition tins
they have each year. Smile
