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:
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
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...
