Default I just graduated and need suggestions.

After 4 years in college I am graduating on Saturday and want to celebrate.

I am in need of suggestions and I am turning to you guys. My friends and I will be hanging out and celebrating but I want some way to make this night memorable and interesting. Hopefully this memorable activity will require a hookah.

Any specific blends? Any base liquid shisha combos? Any particular location that you think would make the hookah's nature beauty shine?

Congrats on graduating! A mix that I personally used that was really good that you could give a try was Al Fakhar Orange shisha and in the base I used orange juice and vodka. Or, instead of a screw driver in the base, you could try a madras which is just putting half orange juice and cranberry juice with vodka (I'm a bartender so I'm always trying to incorporate different drinks I serve to customers into my hookah base! haha) I could go on and on lol Enjoy!

SB Social Smoke special blend
AF Grenadine
AF Watermelon
AF Mint
Fantasia Pink Lemonade
Fantasia Blueberry

Pretty much these should be a good tasty smoke. There's PLENTY more but those are the first few that come to mind. I don't use anything in the vase except water and ice. So have no input on that. I find smoking outdoors is very enjoyable. Lakeside, on the beach, firepit etc etc, any of these places make it great.

1. Rent power plant
2. Drill in enough hoses at the bottom of a smokestack for the graduating class
3. Airlift a giant wad of shisha into the top; avoid pungent flavors or your town will hate you
4. Find some coal nearby (you're at a power plant, remember) and place it on top. !!!MAKE SURE IT IS LIT FIRST AND COMPLETELY ASHED OVER FOR AT LEAST FIVE MINUTES OR IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING!!!
5.
6. Profit!

As far as AF goes i suggest GRAPE, i know SamB will back me up on that one haha
Also, I would say go in for some Naklha, there is a serious buzz with their flavors though so be mindful of that.

Ice and water - I always keep 2 or 3 2 liter bottles in the fridge and a few ice trays in the freezer that make small cubes. I think ice water and ice make all the difference in the world for cold smoke. A lot of the time I don't even need the cubes and add them later. But together they work amazing- just depends on how lazy I'm feeling haha. When I'm feeling kinda saucy I put ice and water in the vase and then put the whole thing in a huge bowl of ice with enough water to just cover the ice. The water in the bowl increases the contact of the ice to the surface area of the vase.

Alright that was awesome JamesBeach.

King, the Orange juice and cranberry sounds great. I am going to have to try that. Thanks a bunch.

KwiKwi I love the suggestions. I have to find some deals and place some orders once I start my new jobs.

I have never had a grape shisha. Does the AF taste more like the generic store bought or can a small dream of mine come true with it tasting like the concord grapes I grow in my back yard?

Just smoke some flavors that are pretty popular with your peers and yourself, if you want it to be memorable with all of the people. Throw some ice all up in the base. Turn on some mello chill smoking music, and let the night begin. I am sure some really nice experiences/conversations will come about.

if you want to pick up AF, id highly recommend the AF golden apple and golden grape. The golden grape is actually red grapes but it tastes really nice. The best AF flavor imo..

What denotes them as "golden"? Is it the quality? or are they particular flavors?

Happily I understand that much, but is there a distinct difference? Is it a different flavor than their normal grape?

Only that they are slightly different flavors from the regular line. Black/red grape instead of white grape. Etc etc. Quality is the same imho.

Oh, well that is wonderful. I am more partial to black and red grapes anyway. A bit sweeter and more of a flavor profile.

congrats on graduating, in addition to making a special blend where you will be celebrating/smiking will make a big difference as to the entire experience. Where will you be doing this?

Congrats on graduating. College goes by fast doesn't it? I've got one more year and I can't believe it.

I second CH's question/comment. The place almost matters as much as the blend.

Well most likely at the house of a couple friends of mine. If not there I was considering trying to get people to trek out to the highest point in the woods. But having a friend circle full of fat gamers means that they are not as excited about hiking as I am.
