Re: Boston vendors!
There are only two hookah lounges in Boston that I'm aware of. Both of which are in the Allston vicinity past Boston University. Neither of them have inspired me much to go in, but the pictures of "the Nile" lounge off Comm Ave looks decent.
For supplies or hookah's you can check in pretty much any smoke shop but they'll be overpriced. Instead i would highly recommend checking smaller Middle-eastern owned corner convenience stores.
there's one near northeastern university that i love because it has tons of hookahs, different shisha's (although no starbuzz or romman) and over the past 2 years or so have been getting a larger variety in hookahs and accessories - oh yea, best part is that most of the prices are about 2/3's or a half of what you'd see in other shops or online.
