I've found this to be the ultimate complimentary device to drinking beer. Any other hookah smokers?

We went to the hookah bar here in Dallas and I thought everyone was going to KILL me when I lit up a cigg. Not big on flavored air....Interesting venue but lost on me.

I'm tempted but I have never smoked so I restrain.
Have a beer on me.

I smoke shisha pretty often, usually several times a week. I've been doing it off and on since I was back in college 10 years ago, but I picked up a lot once I had one at home.

I have two, the one in front being my newest one:

It has two other hoses, but it's only set up for one in that picture.

I have smoked several brands - Nakhla (everybody starts with Nakhla double apple, and it is still one of the best double apples even if some of their other flavors are pretty crap), Al Fakher, Al Amir, Tangiers, Romman, Layalina, Tonic, Starbuzz... Of those, the best brand I've run across is Starbuzz. Tangiers is good too, generally, but it takes some getting used to.

I tend to use finger coals. Quicklights are a little metallic tasting sometimes and burn out too fast so I only use them when I have nothing else.

Yeah, I got one of those, though not as impressive as the 3-4 hosed one. I find that I like the apple/honey type sheeshas more. Also, I hate the coconut ones. A nice fat bowl and a few pints... that's a relaxing time right there!

Gotta love the hookah! I'm not sure about brands and all, but I love the green apple!

They opened a Hookah bar near my house. Every time I have a few drinks, it seems like a good idea, but I'm never actually gone in the place. Eventually, I will.

I have an Egyptian 2-hose rotating.... it's great, we just don't use it often.
Mint and vanilla are our two standard flavors, not a big fan of imitation Apple flavors.
