Hail Hookah Opens on S. Main
Secondhand smoke shouldn't be a problem, says Dalal: Hail Hookah's owners-- John Saroki, Bernard Arabo, and Marius Essak--have spent more than $70,000 on a ventilation system. Dalal gives a tour of the back room, where dozens of canisters of sticky fruit-flavored hookah tobacco sit on shelves--pumpkin pie, peach, strawberry: "Hookah smoke is like flavored air anyway."
Hail Hookah, 637 S. Main, 444-4245. Sun.-Thurs. noon-2 a.m., Fri. & Sat. noon-4 a.m. hailhookahaa.com
