Ah, I'm up in Albany, so no dice.
I'm really surprised they don't have more stores here dedicated to hookah supplies. There's three stores that I know of that sell shisha, and all three of them are basically head shops which happen to sell some tobacco as a sideline, so they tend not to be well-stocked. Their main customers are stoners, not hookah smokers. I've got a line on a Middle Eastern grocery store nearby that supposedly sells shisha, but my hopes are not high.
We also don't have any hookah lounges, just a single restaurant where you can smoke out on the patio when it's nice outside (i.e. - not anytime in the next six months).
