Not with a bang, but a whimper

RIP: South Pacific Pipes & Cigars

DOB: c. 2002

For years, a haven for a bunch of  guys. A place where they could gather to smoke cigars and pipes and bullshit.

The cast of characters:
Owner: Gene
Silent owner: Aiko
     Dennis: everyone's uncle
     Aunty Linda: kind & generous, she often fed the "boyz"
     Ray: always with an opinion
     Pete: animals and musical instruments
The usual suspects:
     Al: a man of few words, but they were "cherce"
     Jose: how did he break TWO chairs???
     Opie: too funny
     Marv: according to Chuck F, "Marvelous" at cigars and wine
     Larry: I thought he was bald under the cap. A generous fellow
     Ted: the silent crossword/sudoku dude
     Harry: such a nice guy
     Matt: words fail me
     Hapa: a crafty trumps player and sweetheart, but his timing sucks
     Everett: wheeler/dealer
     Jack: snowbird

What do the "boyz" do next? (And this is what THEY call themselves!)

New venue for smoking cigars: the Design Center
Old alternative venue: Thirds
Final day: Tuesday, June 21, 2011, which happened to be the Summer Solstice.

They are still cleaning and painting, but the party is over.

The boyz are waiting for the rebirth of the Phoenix...
