Not since it's heyday in the 1940's has pipe smoking been as popular as it is today and Raleigh is embracing this with a growing local pipe club: The Triangle Area Pipe Smokers (TAPS).
TAPS started in 1997 after Jim Carrino and Jim Swindell met at a pipe show in Richmond, VA . The two decided to start a club where others who enjoy pipes could share their passion. The club has since grown to more than 40 members today.
