Please Join us at O’Briens Restaurant & Bar on Sunday March 9th, 2003 for the 23rd Annual Chicago Pipe Smoking Contest sponsored by Up Down Tobacco & the Up Down Sons of Briar (S.O.B.’s).

Established to preserve and promote the fine art of pipe smoking, this time-honored competition has tripled in size since its humble beginnings 23 years ago to become one of the largest and most famous pipe smoking contests in the world.

How it works: Each contestant is given the exact same amount (3.3 grams) of tobacco, two matches and one minute to light their pipe. After the one-minute mark has passed you are not allowed to re-light it at any time. The last person still smoking is the Champion.

Whether you’ve been smoking since the day you were born or you’ve never smoked a pipe before in your life you’re sure to Have a good time, Make new friends, and Win a Super Prize at the 23rd Annual Chicago Pipe Smoking Contest Sunday March, 9th, 2003 at O’Briens Restaurant & Bar 1528 N. Wells, Chicago.

This contest has a limited number of entrants. In order to compete you must pre-register, either in person at Up Down Tobacco 1550 North Well street in Chicago or by calling 1-800-5-UPDOWN.
