Smoking tobacco is a time-tested way to relax and unwind, like sleeping on a waterbed and or dozing on a pool noodle. Loosen up without damaging aquatic sleeping quarters with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cigars, pipes, and pipe tobacco at Tobacco Cabana in Cedar Hill.
Puff professional Jim Klipp owns and operates Tobacco Cabana, which carries an extensive array of pipes, cigars, tobacco, and smoke-cloud-enhancing accessories. Customers can grab a pair of small cigarillos ($1) to enjoy during a lunch break or two-day congressional recess, or they can go straight for a sizable hand-rolled cigar injected with Cognac Louis XIII ($14). Feel free to light up a corncob pipe ($5), or fittingly place it in the maw of a scarecrow, which actually should not be done due to the flammability of flannel. A selection of more than 70 blends of pipe tobacco costs $5 an ounce. Sales tax is included in all prices, and Jim can special order any item not in stock. To further cement his reputation as a customer-centric purveyor of smoking wares, he is happy to assist clients looking for an ideal pipe fit, a new blend of tobacco, or an official explanation of how much smoke the sun actually emits through its constant blazing.
