If you are going to Chicago then you are in luck. Several places sell hookahs/tobacco and the prices are much better than online ( like 30-50% less). Do not buy from lounges since they are expensive. Last month bpetruzzo started a google map with many local shops in many US cities and I added my favorite shops (see links below). The first place I go to when I'm in the city is Cleopatra. You can buy a nice Magdy Zidan or a KM for about $35-40 complete plus all kinds of shisha discount prices. Have fun !
