Then with that info, and everything that you saw and liked and as importantly, didn't like, take it home with you and blend it with your own situation. Learn from our successes and mistakes. You would be welcome anytime at our lounge, and I would be more then happy to sit with you and help anyway possible. I know other lounge owners would also.
We will definitely do a road trip, we've been to a few in Virginia but traveling out of state along the east coast to visit hookah lounges will help a lot when considering plans of success and mistakes. I will have to take recommendations on that from everyone to create a list!
