    Okay, as some of you may know, to celebrate the forum getting its 2000th member, I'm havng a sale on leather pipe stands (regular and jumbo) and pipe & tobacco journals this month and 10% of the proceeds will go back to PSF, in your name, to give back to this great site (here's the link):
    http://pipesmokersforum.com/communi...ate-psfs-2000th-member-give-back-to-psf.9659/

    So, I'm kicking things off by giving away a free leather pipe stand (in your color choice of brown, black or natural). This will be monogrammed with up to 3 of your initials and shipped free of charge to the first person that can answer these 3 trivia questions:

    1. In the novel, Moby Dick, upon arriving in New Bedford, Ishmael searches for a place to get a good meal, what is the name of that place?

    2. Who becomes Ishmael's savage sidekick?

    and

    3. What kind of pipe does Ishmael's sidekick smoke?

    The first person to answer all three questions wins!

    I forfeit and promise to stay out of the next contest if Sorringowl wants to try it gain.

    I actually may be wrong on one of the answers anyway.

    I am about halfway through actually. I took a break and read Treasure Island and now am reading some current kindle freebie fiction. After that, I plan to finish MD.

    Okay, Woody is the winner!

    He got all three right.
    1. Spouter Inn
    2. Queequeg
    3. Tomahawk pipe.

    Nice job! For those of you who haven't read this classic (I'm reading it now, myself), it's chock full of pipe smoking references.

    Woody, PM me your address and tell me which color you'd like sent and what initials (up to 3), you'd like on there.

    Thanks for playing.

    Congrats, Woody! You deserve it! Besides, you are actually reading the book and came on the knowledge honestly, rather than just Googling it. :appl:

    Woody, I'm a man of my word and you won fair and square. I might have another giveaway, though. Just have to think of some more pipe related trivia. Hmmm....

    Treasure Island has a good amount of pipe smoking references too. Plus it is very easy to read compared to MD.
