Mastering fire eating typically requires years of practice, unwavering concentration, and spending long hours kissing fire hoses. Swap fire for some sweet smoke with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of hookah, beverages, and snacks at Hookah Bookah.
Hookah Bookah wafts the gentle aromas of its tobacco arsenal, allowing patrons to customize their hookahs with various flavors, a number of bowls and hoses, and an appetizing menu of munchables. A single bowl ($9.95) can brim with one of 22 premium, flavored tobaccos, such as mango, jasmine, or honey ($1 for single flavor), or with a heaping of 1 of 14 exotic tobaccos from a list that includes banana split and pomegranate ($3 for single flavor). Lung-powered fog machines can arrive sporting up to three distinct hoses ($4), although Hookah Bookah's policies foster sanitary smoke-ring creation by mandating that no more than three guests may share a multihose hookah and only one person may use a single-hose hookah. Patrons can accessorize their mini-cloud generators with natural coals, ice in the base, or political bumper stickers for additional fees.
Gustatory indulgence swarms taste buds with an array of sippables and snacks in addition to the decadent tobaccos. Hookah Bookah crafts cupfuls of tea ($2.50) from a selection of 10 steep-worthy choices and cools esophagi with a mango lassi ($4.50). Orders of hummus ($3.95) slather palates by the meatless mouthful. Customers may choose to puff away outdoors or within Hookah Bookah's walls, which regularly witness live belly dancing and music performances.
