Pete and Micah just returned from the West Coast Pipe Show in Las Vegas and for those that have never attended we highly recommend it. The show organizers do a great job of putting together an enjoyable show that features handmade pipes from established and newer pipe makers, factory pipes, estate pipes, new and aged pipe tobacco, and much more.
The West Coast show attracts some of the best pipe makers from around the world but is relaxed enough that attendees have a chance to spend time getting to meet pipe makers and many others that share a similar enthusiasm for pipes and pipe tobacco. A smoking lounge with bar service was set up just for show attendees and provided a great place to catch up with old friends and make some new ones after the show floor closed each day. Smoking is also allowed on the show floor so you can enjoy your favorite pipe or latest vintage tobacco find while you continue the search for that next favorite pipe.
Las Vegas is famous for it's myriad entertainment and dining options and the host hotel/casino, Palace Station, provides a lot of great dining options so you never have to venture far from the show. We hope to see you there next year!
