A contingent from the DTPC are fresh (minus the sleep) from the West Coast Pipe Show! What the fledgling show lacks in size and international standing compared to Chicago it makes up for in intimacy and smoker-friendliness: You can puff your pipe just about anywhere in Vegas!
Another benefit is that there is no “pre-show” tacked on, which means that when the doors open you don’t have to worry that ~30% of the pipes will have already been sold within the three days leading up to it. (Sorry, Chicago Show — that’s still a sore point with us.)
The weather was lovely, the skies were blue, and we had our fair share of smoking and enjoying the other delights that Vegas has to offer. Here are a few, mostly blurry, iPhone-photo highlights for your viewing pleasure!
