  1. That sucks, Too bad the knockoffs will never be remotely close to as good. Especially the glass hookah I snagged off of Crown when the first batch came out. Nothing even remotely comparable that ive seen for less than a grand(got it for somewhere around 300-350) Could knock someone out cold with the base and probably not leave a single crack in it!

  2. Long story short, I have four tupperware containers of Tangiers..stuff worked great at my old residence, but can't get it to work at all at the new place And I'm too impatient to deal with it currently..plus little time to smoke lately..so selling it off. Mind the amounts are estimates of what's left..barely had a couple of bowls of each..so still quite a bit left in each bin. Roughly $5 for shipping.

    Tangiers birquq Breakfast cereal(the fruit loop tasting one) approx. 200g $10
    Tangiers birquq Spearmint approx. 175g $8
    Tangiers noir Cocoa approx. 200g $10
    Tangiers Lucid (Horchata I think?) approx. 100g $5

    Or (preferably) I will sell the entire pile for $25 plus $5 shipping. i just have to double check that fourth one when I get back in state..Could swear it was Hochata though. Just hate to see good Tangiers go to waste just sitting there hehe. PM if interested.

  3. Well I decided to be that guy and test out the new gimmick product and review it..so here we go.


    Cost: 45 in a box..eight dollars..little on the pricey side.

    Appearence: Basically an oversized coconara..but with a V cut into the underside. Two of them on an alien phunnel barely fit side by side.

    Smell/taste: not bad..gives off a slight odor when lighting on the electric stove..but nothing that makes you want to cover your nose

    Ease of Lighting/Method: Electric camp coil stove

    Ash: Grey ashing

    Heat/Duration: Good heat overall..I figured with them being so large they would overheat the bowl..but I guess the v takes care of that...and it's Nakhla..which is impossible to screw up. As far as duration, they seem to burn up about 10-15 minutes quicker than cocos/CH naturals.

    Recommend: If you're into the gimmick thing...go for it. Still pretty much buying overpriced cocos though.

    OVERALL: 7/10 - they're good, but gotta knock a few points off for the shorter duration and higher price per coal.

    well, like i say and say, tangiers packs like any other tobacco for a given bowl. It's all in the HEAT.

    And that's very cool. Quick Marry her before one of these clowns gets ideas. B)

    Shhh don't tell him! Gotta make my moves here! Lol, all seriousness though that is freaking awesome. Like a hookah smokers wet dream of sorts hah


    Duh, winning.

  5. Every one I've been to around chicago has a minimum. The only one I found that doesn't do this is down in Bloomington, IL. In fact they usually have a $5ish all you can smoke deal on wed./thursdays as well. Only gripe is their shisha selection..Al Waha and Starbuzz are not my friends.

    Also interesting note..no company can technically charge you for tap water in IL apparently..learned that a few weeks ago. They could be d-bags like McDonalds however and charge 5 cents for the cup though..bleh.

  6. As far as the Ankh goes, don't do it. it comes with a couple of cool bowls but the hookah/hose itself is a freaking joke. I returned it within a day..lol. The hose is so tiny you feel like you have asthma trying to use it...oh and not even going there about how it was so lightweight that moving the hose around swivels/knocks the hookah down.

    And, as far as the Crown hookahs go, I have the Gamma one from that first batch that Santino/Poncho whipped up(I think it was just one of each..), and the thing is freaking awesome. I also have had no problems cleaning it either..quite durable glass. I wouldn't necessarily use the stem as a beatstick of any kind, but it's survived more than a few accidental bumps and knocks in the sink. Nice perk is it's all borosilicate glass(or w/e it's called) so coals/hot water don't crack it. I just got lazy the last few months and haven't written a review heh..

  7. I like that reply..people rarely listen to facts wherever smoking is involved though sadly..since the cigarette industry has essentially caused all forms of tobacco to be rolled in with their chemicalized crap.

    it's interesting how noone really mentions that hookah is (generally) non addictive as compared to cigarettes as well. I can use the thing 2x a day for an entire week and go months without. Maybe I just don't have an addictive personality, but that's what i've noticed.
