Smoking Mummy

Sweet Pea The Mummy is no longer out front. It's not the best neighborhood and I think they thought he might get stolen or vandalized. He isn't gone though. He has a new home in the beer garden behind the building.

Sweet Pea the Smoking Mummy is no longer there :( Drove by today, even went inside. They do have a nice little cigar shop and bar.

Smoking Mummy

Cigars and Stripes is a lounge and comedy club on old Route 66 in Berwyn. It has plenty of atmosphere, along with a wide selection of cigars and flaming hot Sauces. "Sweet Pea" the 9 ft. tall Smoking Mummy is out front daily, or just hanging around our beautiful beer garden.
