New York Pipe Club celebrating International Pipe Smoking Day
Howdy all, back with you again this time we're at De La Concha Cigar Shop celebrating International Pipe Smoking Day. This year we celebrated IPS Day one day earlier, on Saturday February 19th, since the official IPS Day fell on Sunday this year. We had a good turn out, on such a cold day, by members of the pipe club (as seen in the picture above).
We arrived at roughly 2pm and proceeded to get setup in our usual spot by the window. Our thanks go out to Vernon Vig who secured the spot for us to hold IS day. Also, to our surprise, Vernon had De La Concha display the custom made Dunhill pipe presented to him by the NYPC. President Lou brought couple of bottles of Port Wine for the members to share, Also De La Concha extended a 10% discount on all pipe tobaccos and some of the members took advantage of this.
It was a fun time and everyone enjoyed getting together to celebrate International Pipe Smoking Day even if it was a day earlier. As always pictures can be seen here IPS Day.
Hope to see you all at the next meeting to be held on March 8th, 2011 at Florio's from 6pm - ?.
