The Juggling Gypsy smoking show goes on.

There were over 30 Hookah bars in North Carolina when the Smoking ban went into effect Jan, 1st.   

The Hookah bars tried to find an exception,a loophole, but hope had faded.  The law wasn’t budging. It appeared to be the end of hookah bars in North Carolina. The first domino falling in what looked like a nationwide line of dominos for Hookah bar owners.  

North Carolina Hookah bars closed their Hookah doors after a few weeks of January cold proved that a Hookah bar was not going to get a loophole in the smoking ban.  


A loophole within the North Carolina law was relized upon by the Juggling Gypsy hookah bar owner Danny Best.

According to the North Carolina law, smoking is permitted “within the capacity of an actors performance upon a live performance set.” And thus now, If you smoke there, you are part of the show. Video consent form and all.  

“In the performance biz, an age-old saying is: The Show must go on (and) it certainly is” says the Juggling Gypsy website.  

“On January 1, 2010,” the Juggling Gypsy website continues (we) “formally launched (our) long-awaited reality-based live theatrical performance called “The Smoking Show”. A live, reality-based show created to further showcase our already-existing amazing roster of performance-based talents in a variety of mediums..Including, but certainly not limited to the Art of Smoking.”  

     But Best also claims on his website that this was not just about the smoking ban. Entertainment was going to be part of the hookah bar long before any concerns about the smoking ban even came up, the Juggling Gypsy argues.    

   And though he plays up the humor and sarcasm of finding a way around the smoking ban for now, Best does have an impressive line up of bands, belly dancers and other entertainment to go with the smoking show. As well as a history of entertainment. Something that may save him if lawmakers feel embarrassed.  

But on the other hand the show is recorded with a quality that is similar to the cheapest walmart webcam.
