Yep. This place is great. My buddy and I have made it a tradition to spring for the pay lounge at the end of each year. We drink, smoke, and relax for half a work day.
We just found out about this and are planning on spending a day watching football and hanging out. Have a couple buddies in the city, I'm out in the burbs

Well, since it's right near you, that probably makes better sense!

Speaking of relaxing with a pipe or cigar, I have a favorite story. Playing Counterstrike with my feet up on the desk in just my boxers (I'm taken, ladies, sorry) puffing on a lovely Hondoran. 20 minutes in, after fragging CTs, the life affirming feeling of the ash finally falling off onto my beer gut... the hot ember burning a small circle on which hair still will not grow.

You dont forget nights like that.

Can I ask what you paid for this assortment of goodies? Just wondering how different the cost would be there than up here.

The pipe, 4 tins (paid for five), pipe cleaners and tool were $97. That's including the $11 dollars shipping.
I then ordered the Captains taster just because.
Shipping to Alaska is pretty crappy. Lots of vendors don't use the postal service so we end up paying steep UPS or FedEx. Pipesandcigars at least shipped USPS

Chip carved pipe with a Winchester 12 gauge shot shell for the little cap on the stem. Got it from Boswell Pipes in PA. Came with everything here except for two of tobaccos. Excited about the pouch as now I'm more portable with my pipes.

Boswell makes a nice pipe and they are good people to deal with!
