Exclamation IPCPR New Orleans 2009

I'm starting this a few days early.
Anyone going? Let us know.

I'm going to link here to many of the pre-show releases and news items.

As posted in the Herf's Up forum, Cigar Weekly (meaning me, mostly) is sponsoring a dinner herf on the Tuesday night, a week from this posting. We held this at The Camp in 2005 with over 70 in attendance; at 10 Downing Street in 2007, with lesser results, but still a great time.....last time I ever saw or talked to Ed Guevara (Cubano67)

This year's is shaping up, with Facebook promotion and and talk among my local friends, we're already up over 60 people.
Since 2008 when we heard that the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers' annual trade show is being held in New Orleans, Cigar Weekly's owners and editors decided that we should throw a herf/party during the show. So many of our members and friends will be in town for the show, what better time could there be to gather? Since 2005, Cigar Weekly members, at least in the year's I've been, have gathered on the Tuesday night. So this year it will be Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

Editor-in-Chief TommyBB and friends will be involved in selecting a suitable venue to capture the essence of New Orleans, yet comfortable enough to enjoy time with good friends.

While final details aren't completely finalized, we have a venue

"French Quarter Pizzeria" at 201 Decatur St. one block from Canal Street.

It's an easy walk from the Faubourg St. Mary/Warehouse District and Convention Center.

Reyes Family Cigars have agreed to provide party favors.

We are also in discussions with Cuban Crafters

as well as
Avalon Cigars

Bill fromIsland Smoke Shopwill bring his El Original

"Las Jovenes from Quesada Cigars will bring some of their new cigars, too.

Victoria McKee from General Cigars

We welcome any members or entities who would like to be a part of what promises to be, if nothing else, an enjoyable time to break bread, toast and share conviviality with fine cigars made by good friends and colleagues.

A menu is available on the website, and the prices are quite reasonable for New Orleans, in general, and the Quarter in particular. There MAY be some CW specials as well.

Can't wait to see y'all down here

We now have beer sponsorship--FREE BEER
