The Conclave Of Richmond Pipe Smokers, C.O.R.P.S. (pronounced “CORE” like the Marine Corps), is a non-profit organization, founded for its members and the public to learn about and enjoy the Ancient & Honorable Art & Sport of Pipe Smoking; and to educate and communicate all positive aspects thereof. We also, as much as possible, support Richmond area children’s charities with funds beyond our operating expenses. Membership is open to any person or organization interested in any aspect of the Art & Sport. A dues or sponsorship payment is required (currently $25 per year for individuals).

We meet monthly in a social meeting, with some limited business,  to enjoy one another’s company for dinner, drink and sharing our love of pipes and tobaccos.  The meetings are usually held on the third Tuesday of the month, but the day, time and location will vary. See below for the location of the next meeting.  An irregular newsletter is issued, which provides meeting info, hobby happenings, literature, art and the like.

We also host THE annual Pipe Smokers’ Exposition & Celebration, which celebrated its 30th year this past October 10-12, 2014!   Click here to find out more and to join us!  Please visit our 30th. EXPO Highlights page for details and photos.

    Here’s what is said about The Pig and Pearl:
    “Richmond’s newest destination restaurant is truly unique. We pair gourmet comfort food, stellar service, and a local vibe.What’s more, tucked beside the bright and airy dining room aficionados will discover BURN, a high-end smoking lounge boasting an ambitious whiskey portfolio and coveted collection of quality cigars.Our modern, southern-influenced menu features gourmet comfort food prepared lovingly. The Oyster Bar serves VA’s finest oysters from the Eastern Seaboard, although we do make room for a few of their West Coast cousins.We rotate 20 beer taps with domestic favorites and hometown heroes. We also offer a great little wine list, cordials, and classic cocktails.”
    Note: P&P’s smoking room has booths along one wall, and a few tables. We won’t have the luxury to “shove the tables together” to have a presentation meeting, but the place is small enough to mingle and speak comfortably!
