I always imagined that place looking nicer in my head, never have gone there of course.
Sucks money wise, but I guess he should be happy no one was hurt

Not the fanciest looking place, but in the back where he has the tobacco and everything, he has at least about 1000 movies back there.
I'm just really glad everyone is alright.
I'm going to be there in 2 weeks and I am not going to carry anything other than my license with me now

Damn that had to be scary... I'm glad nobody was physically hurt, but the emotional/etc damage has to be there. Best wishes to them.

I dont understand something, the cop on the video and the papers say the robber was wearing a red bandana over his face during the robbery..........Fast forward to 1:35 on the video and he says the guy had a goatee and a pencil thin moustache. How the "F" would you know that if he was wearing a red bandana over his face? He must have cut a hole in it for his mouth or something LOL. I am not trying to be insensitive or anything but the story doesnt make sense. Eric looked pretty calm as well, didnt appear too shaken up.

I never said that. All I said was something doesnt add up. Maybe the cops screwed this up, maybe it was fake, maybe the robber had a hole in his mask, maybe the victims were so caught up with emotion that they messed up the description. I am just saying that it doesnt add up, watch the you tube yourself. The cop even says he was wearing a bandana and a few seconds later says he was goateed.

I only mentioned him being calm because John said he was pretty shaken up, he looked like he was headed back in to smoke hookah if you ask me.

4 different people = Different assessments.
I'm sure one of them didn't really get a good look at the guy and said that.

Damn, that's crazy. Good thing everyone is still alright. Looks like Eric was able to keep his composure pretty well even after this happening.

Wow, crazy stuff. In response to husky, It could be possible that he put the bandanna on when he walked in, or took it off as he was walking out. Or, he could have simply had it around his neck and chin. Not as to cover the face, but a gang symbol. Not to mention, if I were Eric, and I were smoking Tangiers all day, I prolly wouldnt be too shooked up. Or I would tell the cops to let me smoke a session before the interview lol. Not sure about details, but if nothing was taken besides money on every person, then I dont think they would have to worry about inventory and stuff or however the money counting thing goes at the end of the day. It would also help out with some business, but as for being there for 6+ years and making some of the best shisha out there, i dont think this is phoney.

edit: is there a security cam video or anything?
