Default Sweet Find

Today I decided to turn early and go a different route home from work. Much to my surprise I saw a Lebanese Restaurant with Hookahs for sale lining the window and massive amounts of tubs of shisha on the shelves inside. This is a break through find since there are only a couple of places local that sell Hookahs or related supplies and all of them are super high priced AND I think I may have a line on lebanese Narghiles now. I will post more when I stop in there tomorrow, I am gonna leave work early(Big Surprise) and check it out. What are the distinguishing characteristics of a Lebanese hookahs so I know that I am pricing the correct thing.

Billy

If they turn out to be a decent place please place the name, address and phone number the place so that those of use not from your your neighborhood can try to order from them.

my local goto vendor is also a lebanese deli. They have a great selection of lebanese nirghille and shisha etc.
One characteristic of many lebanese hookahs is the screw on stem, from what I understand.

Real Lebanese manufactured hookahs are typically constructed with glass orbs that have been gilded.

Look like this:

Other "lebanese" hookahs are really just high end chinese stuff (prolly MYA) on local glass.

You will find Syrian hookah stems or components used to make Lebanese hookahs.

Also, a lot of Lebanese hookahs are female hookahs, meaning they use male bowls.

Awesome. You should take pics to show how much of a collection they have. Haha that is if you feel comfortable oding that...Cuz I know I wouldn't at my hookah shop >_< They'd probably be all suspicous if I did that cuz I look "suspicious" enough cuz of the fact I look like I'm 16 or something even though I'm 18!

Haha I remember the first time I bought stuff from there, they were in shock that I was 18. They were giving my "the look" the moment I walked in :P

I don't understand why everyone is getting all fired up about hookahs that Melissa Etheridge, Rosie O' Donnell, Ellen Degeneres, and K.D. Lang prefer to smoke from. Oh, wait a minute, you said Lebanese!

Hahahaha! That was perfect, right up to the pinch line! I was thinking, "Oh wow, they smoke hookah too!?" Well they certainly don't smoke the pipe!

I am headed there in about 20 minutes. I hope its good priced stuff since they WAAAY overcharge around here for shisha. If it turns out to be Lebanese hookahs there I will request permission from teh shop owner to post his info here since I saw a few people in past threads express interest in Lebanese hookahs.

I hit up that store today, they carry Egyptians and Lebanese Hookahs! A little pricey though and I am unsure if they do mail order since they were busy with the lunch crowd. I will definantly call them later tonight or tomorrow and see what they say about posting their number here for you guys. On the upside, they carry Nahkla and Al Amir cheaper than anyone in town AND they sell my Ahkla QL coals!!!! I am super excited. My wife gets paid tomorrow so I may stop in tomorrow and pick up some AA Apple and Nahkla Strawberry.

Thats pretty kewl! Local places carrying what you what/need is the best! Most of the local places here carry layalina (one just started carring AF 50's). One place on that outskirts carries nakhla and al amir. Then "my" place has romman, HH, and 250 AF tubs!

What? They have the same hobby as the rest of us? So what sort of rig do they use?

Lebanese rigs makers are as Lake said although I am unsure if they actually use Syrian made components but they certainly are a lot like Syrians in many respects which stands to reason given Syrian influence. Anyway, be sure to let me know if they do mail order.

I tried AA Caramel Apple and it was nearly flavorless. It wasn't worth buying. I might have got a bum batch.
