idk if anyone is ever around northern new jersey, but i figured i'd give a good review for a local tobacco shop up here. "FUME" in Montclair NJ. The shop carries mostly cigars but does have some hookah stuff. i needed coals and picked up a box of roland ql (not knowing they were so terrible). after a few smokes with some severe disappointments and reading through the insightful reviews here at HP, i decided to try and return them. after i told my story about the terrible taste, Ralph agreed to exchange the remainder of my box (i used about 14 of the 100 coals) for a brand new box of japanese coals. good prices on everything, friendly staff, good stuff (except those roland ql)
ps- didn't know where this really belonged, but definitely wanted to give a good word for a local shop.
