Club Members enjoying a smoke
How time flies, here were are getting ready for another pipe club meeting when the last one was just around the corner. As you see from the picture we had a change of venue. Our usual haunt Florio's was closed, real reason unknown (we think issues with them not being able to renew their liquor license), so we decided to try another smoking friendly location.
It was decided that we would try out a place called Circa Tabac in Tribeca This blogger had been there some years back and had always kept it on the list as a place where one could eat, drink and enjoy a smoke (cigar, cigarette or pipe). This place, for you cigarette smokers, boasts the largest variety of cigarettes available (over 150 I believe).
People arrived between 5:30 - 6:30pm and availed themselves of Circa Tabac's light bite menu and various cocktails that were offered. The waitress was nice enough to keep everyone's check separate so that no one could complain about what they ordered. Prices were reasonable for the cocktails food being served.
We had a good turn out for this meeting, what with the day being the 11th anniversary of the World Trade Center bombings. About 20-30 people were in attendance and we raised a bowl in memory of those folks who lost their lives that fateful morning. People were also, as done at all meetings, showing off new pipes purchased and talking about events that they were at (the Chicago show and others).
A nice time was had by all and those in attendance feel that this venue could be a place where we'd want to host our meetings, in the event that Florio's doesn't reopen.
Well gotta run to get ready to face the real world, not the virtual one, and before I close here's the link where you can see the pictures from September's meeting.
