Re: a THOUGHT ON certain local lounges....please share..
The only "lounge" I've been to was a place in Madison, WI. I can't remember the name of the place even, it's been so many years since I was there. But, they served hookah as well as flavored martinis. I was in Madison for a business conference and was kind of bored so I thought I'd check it out. I had no idea what a hookah bar was then. The people working there were very friendly and informational. I have to admit that they were one of the reasons I developed an interest in smoking hookah. It was fun and entertaining. However, a six hour drive to Madison to smoke a hookah is a bit out of line so needless to say I've never been back there. Smoke happy.
