Nope, I don't. New to hookah, and still don't own my own. I don't see why managment should care if they allow cigs. Hope all goes well

Yeah I've smoked at the beach before as well, your best bet is to ask about it, I would come prepared with a picture of one in case there is confusion.

Like others here, I like to smoke at one of the local parks. It over looks the lake and also has disc-golf. Some friends and I went out there with glow sticks and made a night of it. The cops in our area thought we were some kind of cult. Luckily, it was one of the good cops on our force and his protege.

Yeah it seems like a thread like this pops up a lot. For the most part hookahs in public are fine as long as people know what they are. If you explain it to the manager he should be ok, but then again maybe he doesnt like the idea. It's his joint so you still have to respect that. Other than that enjoy the bowling hookah session

I take my 22" to any cookouts or birthday parties i'll go to. Since the smoke is so smooth you get to engage people you don't know who wouldn't normally smoke.

Just know that they may embrace you with open arms but I think that they should let you heck you may start a tend and have a hookah bowling lounge,

But. I know once well smoking at a park a douche cop comes up tells us to stand and stand away from the set up takes a water bottle dumps it on the hookah and then takes it as paraphinal and tells us that we can get it back and explain what it is in court

I brought a small MYA pipe with me to a Denny's restaurant with my friends once.

The waitress asked us to take it home, so we asked to speak with the manager. The manager comes over and guess what? He's Lebonese! He was astonished to see four white kids with a shisha in his restaurant, and not only let us stay, but he kept coming back to sneak puffs off one of the hoses. He said he had not seen a shisha since he moved to the US and proceeded to ask all kinds of questions about where we get our supplies and such. He was absolutely amazed that there was a stateside hookah movement.

Epic night.

me and a couple of my buddys work in the same place, we smoked it in the "smoking area" the head of management came out and called our hookahs "DRUGS" we offered him some and we showed him the shisha trying to show that its not drugs, but he didnt care and he told us we cant do that anymore... damn it

That was a good time, back when we could still smoke indoors here in AZ.

I smoke in public all the time my whole thing is I don't care what people think and the only way to smash the stereotype is to put it in people's faces and let them ask the questions. Understanding is reached only after confrontation.

+1 I do as well. Smoke all over campus, at the beach, the park, basically wherever my friends and I want to and it's legal to. I enjoy talking about hookah to anyone who asks as long as they aren't so hookah ignorant that even after my 15 minute explanation they insist it's not used for tobacco.

Looking to try it in a Country Kitchen at around 3 am, since they are open 24/7. Can't imagine we'd get kicked out, we have done some crazy shit in that restaurant.
