Default Checking in from hawaii

whats going on guys, just joined from hawaii. I always got directed here whenever I searched a hookah question on google so I figured I would join. Born and raised in hawaii but moved to chicago for 5 years. Im back in the islands now but I used to work at a hookah lounge in the chicago area, which is really where my addiction started.

feels nice to actually be able to post instead of just reading everything

Welcome to the forums. I've always wondered about the hookah culture in Hawaii. Do you have a good number of shops and lounges?

hookah isn't as widespread in hawaii as much as it is in the mainland states although its gaining popularity. to my knowledge, there's only one shop that is dedicated to hookah supplies although some pipe shops across the island carry various cheap hookahs but nothing spectacular. if you want a good hookah here, you would have to order online but coals and shisha are pretty easy to find.

Interesting. A friend of mine was considering moving to Hawaii. He and his cousin are likely going to be opening a sushi joint. He has been trying to convince me to move with him and we were talking about setting up a brewery/smoking lounge adjacent to the sushi joint.

just so you know, there is a law that bans indoor smoking in hawaii. the only two ways i know of (I almost opened a lounge myself) to open a lounge is to either purchase an existing lounge, or open your shop under the pretense of a tobacco shop (under hawaii law, tobacco shops are the only places you can smoke publicly indoors)

just a heads up, but it is definitely a legit place to live.
