    King's Hookah

    Okay, this place is in Portland, OR on Couch st. First of all, i feel I will never find such a good hookah lounge EVER! The guys that run it are brothers and they are the nicest people you would ever meet! They use Egyptian hookahs, Mod bowls and serve Starbuzz or golden Layalina. they use only Coconara's and the hoses are large gauge KM type hoses. good stuff.. the seating is very comfortable and nice inside. I go there all the time. look it up. 10/10 !!!

It looks like a Trimetal but with wood... and some other weird pieces.. I am thinking about going to take a look at it and offering 30 bucks. don't think its a KM but would be a cool pipe to add to the collection. go for it!

  8. QUOTE (evilded777 @ May 12 2009, 10:01 AM) QUOTE (Zinite @ May 12 2009, 11:26 AM) BTW, Walgreens replaced the black model they sell with a white model. It doesn't get as hot, it burns the plastic when you light coals on it, and it takes longer to heat. Stock up on any of the black ones if you find them. ummm... I have the white one; works like a charm. Takes me a few minutes on high to light a Coco or CH, one flip generally. Maybe there is ANOTHER white one? how long have you had it? cause i have the white one too, it worked great for a month.. and now it doesn't even get hot enough to get the coils red.. it takes like 25 minutes to start the coals on it..

  10. He only took one pull, and it took me months to get him to crack! But he finally did try it tonight with me! And all he said was "huh.... wierd." LOL

I am selling these two Magdy Zidan double pears. trying to get $100 each, at least... I have one red, and one pearl.. Neither have been used before.. Please help me out. -Elijah
  12. QUOTE (chinamon @ Apr 14 2009, 11:38 PM) so... how did it taste? Lol well it tasted like DEATH!
  13. DO NOT!!, I repeat!, DO NOT suck first. make sure you blow out first! BLeck!!! I'm pretty sure that I sucked up dust, spiders, spider webs, char, and all kinds of nasty crap! I almost puked! LOL anyway.. just thought, i'd share.
  14. Here's a stupid story.. I forgot to use tongs once and just used my fingers to rearrange the coal on top of the bowl.. Yeah. picture that.
  15. I think he means the heater? there is an alternative to using coals.. Its a little tiny coil heater that rests on top of the bowl.. I actually just ordered one for smoking in the car!
  16. oatmeal cult? what? lol btw, Eric.. don't let it get to you, the people who matter are the consistent customers who actually know how great of a guy you are. Keep up the good work man.
  17. Slightly edited First Scene! THE OPENING SCENES: Fade In: Middle-Eastern music gently starts playing as: [The camera moves haphazardly around a semi-crowded hookah lounge, full of happy people drinking coffee, eating and smoking their hookahs while obliviously involved in there own conversations. Making its way around the room, the camera soon finds its way to a man sitting behind the counter typing a bid into a computer for an internet auction. Another man walks up behind him and places both hands on the back of his chair and playfully pushes down causing the man in the chair to lurch forward in an attempt to steady himself.] (Joey) Hey Dave,[sarcastically] are you still bidding on that damn thing? (Dave) [In an angry voice:] Yes, and I’ve told you not to lean on the back of my fucking chair! (Joey) Jeeze, sorry man! You don’t have to yell at me, I forgot. But c’mon, the trucks here, lets get this shit unloaded. We’re almost out of mint. (Dave) Okay give me a second. [Dave then glances at the screen once more, murmurs something and kisses the necklace around his neck for good luck.] [Cut to the ally behind the building. We see a small delivery truck with a man sorting boxes in the back. The back door to the building opens while Joey and Dave walk out. ] (Tom) hey guys, looks like you have a big delivery this week. (Dave) Yea, but I don’t know how many more will have if this damn smoking ban passes. [Tom tosses a box at Joey who catches it and carries it inside, Dave follows suit after catching his box. Joey walks back out to get another. ] (Dave) hey! Be careful with these! Some of them have replacement bases in them! [Joey turns to his head to the buildings back door.] (Joey)[in a raised voice] Don’t worry, I got this. [Joey turns his head back to the truck just in time to see a box flying through the air which hits him directly in the face, knocking him down with a sound of shattering glass. Cut to the inside of the bar, Dave is once again looking at the computer, Joey standing behind him with a bandage covering his nose.] (Joey)[In a nasally voice] come on its closing time, and I’ve got a date tonight! lets get the hell out of here. (Dave)[Snickering silently] you’re such a liar, alright let’s go. [Dave and Joey walk off stage as the camera moves closer to the computer screen which is out of focus. The lights in the lounge go dark except for the monitor which now comes into focus to show an antique looking solid brass hookah and a counter clicking down the seconds till the auction ends. The counter reaches zero and a screen pops up saying congratulations! You have the winning bid!] fade out:

  20. Ive been smoking everyday for months and never get a buzz.. I throw in some al waha just for the sake of being tired of smoking what I usually do, After 3 pulls.. i'm super buzzed?!?!?!
  21. QUOTE (jon bon @ Apr 2 2009, 02:44 PM) well, here ya go. I won't be tooooo offended it you don't use it- that's a trimetal with a jumbo, very sexy Awesome!! I Love it!
  22. Honesty is the absolute best thing you can do. Its that simple.. usually the hardest thing is the thing you should do. If you don't want to be with her, you still need to tell her about the other girl and tell her completely how you feel. There might be some really hard feelings at first but in time, She will thank you for being honest. Good luck man, and I hope you make the right choice.
  23. QUOTE (phatlucyhookah @ Apr 2 2009, 10:52 AM) Elijah I'm so stoked for you!!!!!!!!!!! My son and I have been kicking around a similar idea when we move to NM in a 6 months or so. Being recently unemployed, again, and living in a college town with a large middle eastern population and NOWHERE TO BUY SHISHA LOCALLY has got me thinking... Got a local tattoo parlor down the street to front me booth space for my henna biz in May - wonder what they'd think about a hookah expansion... on the way there now !!!!!!!!! “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” </a> <a href="http://" target="_blank">Keep letting your light shine. Live the dream. Yeah, I'd say go for it, thats kinda where i'm at.. the unemployment rate here is in the top 6 of the US.. I can't find a job. at all.. So i figured i'd just try to make it myself.. doing this.
  24. QUOTE (Scalliwag @ Apr 1 2009, 11:06 PM) QUOTE (ElijahSing @ Apr 1 2009, 09:35 PM) QUOTE (Scalliwag @ Apr 1 2009, 07:27 PM) That's really cool and quite an endeavor to take on. I love seeing peeps do more than just talk about their dreams as their lives seem to pass them by. I haven't logged onto my Myspace account in so long I cannot even remember my account info Do you have a storefront or? Anything you need help with? Maybe your distributor will "help" you out a bit with a grand opening party or maybe you're already ahead of me on that? Best of luck to you my friend!!! Well.. the deal is.. I'm going into a Piercing/coffee/tattoo parlour and setting up the store in there. LOL But they only ask for 25% of my profit with no space rental fee's.. The guy is really helping me out get this started. he's even fronting me a little money for the first order. Soo.. I just need promotion and support! lol any advice or hints would be greatly appreciated! So can you setup and smoke hookahs there? Anything to help draw a crowd is a good way to go. A hot belly dancer and a BYOB can get peeps coming in. Works for Scalli anyways Promotional costs can be written off and if done right can work well. Especially when word gets out about events like that. Run an ad in the local Craigslist to find a nice dancer as well as promote the event through CL. Cheap publicity. ahh, all great idea's. I haden't thought about CL, and thats funny cause i check it every day. Yeah, the thing that sucks is that there can't be any smoking there right now. Just selling stuff. Because its a tattoo/piercing/coffee shop. Once i get it rolling and start making some money I will rent my own place to open a lounge though!
