eh for hookahs gaara just run down to the mya store. i went down there the other day from UMBC, only about an hour or so drive. take local roads tho... u will hit a $3.20 toll on 606 right before the exit for the mya store. Haha, i got a sneek peek at one of their new designs that they were trying out. it was oh 19-21 inch and had the word $ PIMP $ on the base.

How is it compared to that other Hookah place? (Ice Hookah?)

Also, does anyone know a place with variety that sells Hookah's (not the Shisha)?


It's much better than ICE, in my oppinion. They've got some nicer snacks, good coffee and tea, and they use El Basha compared to ICE's Al Amir. The only downside, depending, is that it's very very very middle-eastern, but I think that's kind of the draw about it. I just wish they had opera-style translations going on underneath the music videos. Plus there's belly dancers.

As for hookahs, if you're looking around the Baltimore area, they've got some at Beav's Urban Outfitters and Smoke Shop on Joppa road, I got my Mya at Tobacco Center Cafe (also on Joppa Road) (both in Towson), Shockers on Harford Road up in Hamilton, Outer Limits Smoke Shop on Rt. 40 in Rosedale, and any tobacco stores I've seen.

man i just need someone to show me how to pack a bowl.

I lost my touch, all my bowls taste like shit, ABSOLUTELY ZERO flavor, garbage.


What flavors?


my favorite is al fakher white grape/esk apple, Nakhla Double Apple, and sometime layalina. I have all these on stock and I just need someone to show me how to pack a bowl again. I've lost all ability to enjoy a session!!!

Update for stores.


Oasis Hookah Lounge is now just a retail store.

Oasis is on South George Mason Drive in the Build America center.

They have 7 foot hookahs for sale along with a bunch of different shisha, coals and anything else you need. I have not gone in there yet just walked by going to Aladdin.

It's a convenient store.

They are carrying Starbuzz, coals and such. They can get just about anything if there is interest. Prices are not too bad more a store. I know the tobacco store at Fair Oaks mall started to carry Starbuzz and Layalina but the prices there are a bit too high IMO.

I am anxious to find out how your meeting goes! I reside in Metro DC, but I am deployed to Iraq now. I plan to be back home around Sept/Oct 2007. Keep me informed.

Went to Al-Nakheel in Vienna yesterday...

Pretty good selection of Nakhla and al Fakher flavors ($5.50 for 250g of Nakhla and $12 for 250g of Al-F), as well as a brand I had not seen before. The script was only in Arabic, which I can't read. I will try and take a picture next time I am there and see if anyone can identify it. They also had boxes of 3 Kings in both 33mm and 40mm ($12.95 for 33mm and $15.95 for 40mm).

Yes, definitely. I'm in Vienna, so I would lean towards a NoVA spot, but I am up for anything. There's a bunch of lounges around.
