Hookah smoking has long been overshadowed by other smoke-inhalation methods, such as smoking cigarettes or sitting atop a burning windmill. Enjoy flavorful tobacco use with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a group hookah session at Moroccan Hookah Palace in Morrisville (up to a $15 value).
In a comfortable, authentic Arabian lounge setting, Moroccan Hookah Palace fosters group unity as fine signature shisha blends smolder fragrantly. Red walls, gold mirrors, and exotic drapery surround the seating area, inviting customers to nestle among comfortable throw pillows and practice exhaling aromatic-smoke trapezoids. Discover more than 30 signature house blends ($13.99) including chai latte, chocolate-covered strawberry, banana split, or mint chocolate chip, with each hookah user receiving a disposable mouthpiece that facilitates hygiene while doubling as a saxophone reed. Soothe flavor-swamped tongues with a pot of moroccan tea ($3.49) or a homemade drink such as ginger lemonade ($4.49), or order delivery from sibling establishment Mawa's Taste of Africa. Customers can rent a private room ($30/hour) to prevent rival hookah teams from spying on their techniques, or they can relax in the lounge for movie night each Tuesday, game night each Wednesday, or belly dancing on Saturday evenings.
Yagg Si Tenn Catering
The chefs at Yagg Si Tenn Catering hail from Senegal—a West African country where vendors peddle tropical fruits in bustling marketplaces and fishermen pluck fresh fish from the bountiful sea. When they arrived on North Carolina soil, the chefs brought with them a wealth of traditional African recipes as well as a deep appreciation for good food and family. Today, they distribute housemade dishes from Senegal and other African countries throughout North Carolina.
Deep in the Yagg Si Tenn kitchen, the chefs fold fresh ingredients and authentic spices into complex dishes—from spicy grilled chicken yassa to flavorful jollof rice. They also bottle their recipes in the form of housemade traditional sauces, such as the fresh roasted-habanero Kani spread and the garlic-and-lemon vinaigrette. The culinary crew has served these freshly made African specialties at weddings, large parties, and odd incidences when everyone in town is inexplicably drawn to the same abandoned factory in the middle of the night.
