North Carolinas smoking ban becoming puzzle.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2010 by Abraham Appel

Its looking like this could get messy.

As we’ve reported at Ed Hardy Smoking, the Smoking ban in North Carolina took effect on January 1st. 2010.  The law mostly said that cigar bars could stay open, but all indoor smoking had to cease.

Originally The Bill was accompanied by a softer tone and his date MS. Loopholes.

The state is not looking for indoor smoking. They have set up a line that can be called anonymously. If a phone call comes in then a state office sends out the letter. It takes two letters to get a ticket. Some Hookah bars wondered if anyone should even worry about the smoking ban. Other Hookah bars closed.

For North Carolina cigaret smokers this rule may not be as severe.

Remember, California outlawed smoking back around 1997. But because cigarets are a person’s property and compact and mobile people have become accustomed to smoking quickly outside. But hookah bars are still running in CA, most likely, due to exemptions written into the law.

In North Carolina the hookah bars were not able to get this exemption. By not being written into the law, the Hookah bars are widely believed to be in violation of the law because these Hookah bars are serving Shisha inside of an establishment.

What can make this hard to report is that its all speculation. Some hookah bars have devoted themselves to pooling their money together and defending the first Hookah bar that has to go to court. Other Hookah bars have moved their Hookahs outside into the cold North Carolina elements and appear to be fully within the boundaries of the law.

Days before the law went into effect one hookah bar tweeted “F the smoking ban … We are still smoking … I am right now!!” Yet this same Tweeter who owns The Hookah Bar in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, actually said he complies with the smoke ban because he is now serving a tea based Hookah not tobacco.

In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Hookah Bliss, has begun begging for a ticket so that they can take the state to court. Hookah Bliss bases its argument on accusations of hypocrisy. The cigar lounges were exempted. According to Hookah Bliss’s owner, Adam Bliss, this is because legislators and rich men smoke at the cigar lounges. And in this Bliss calls foul.

Juggling Gypsy also has all types of state. And now smoking a Hookah is truly an art

In Wilmington, North Carolina, a hookah bar, Juggling Gypsy, changed itself into an entertainment parlor and believes it complies to the Smoking ban because it places everyone smoking on a “stage,” to be filmed by an internet camera making them a performer. If everyone is a performer, say the Juggling Gypsy, then they are exempt though the loophole that says smoking is allowed on a stage and during a performance.

But the state has received 400 +complaints concerning state wide smoking violations. The state met with the Juggling Gypsy last week and says the ball is in their court now.

Oh and “Besides owners, individuals who refuse to snuff their smokes also could be fined $50.”

Hookah Bliss says stop the Hookapocrisy. Refuses to close

Hookah Bliss owner Adam Bliss knows that the North Carolina government said that there is a tobacco ban now.

Bliss knows that he was supposed to close. But The Hookah bar on Franklin Street refuses.  Bliss sees hypocrisies and double standards to large to ignore. In fact, Bliss would appreciate a few citations and a court date if North Carolina would be so kind.

See the Tobacco ban In North Carolina isn’t really a Tobacco ban entirely.  The Herald Sun reported the details like this.

There are exemptions. But Hookah bars are not included in the exemptions.

Cigar bars are exempted.

A cigar bar that makes 60 percent of its quarterly business from alcohol sales and at-least 25 percent of its quarterly sales from cigars is exempt.

Tobacco shops in North Carolina are also exempt because Tobacco shops makes at-least 75 percent of its quarterly revenue from the sale of Tobacco and Tobacco products while not serving food or alcohol.

And outside Patio smoking seems to acceptable.

Hookah Bliss says that to stay open it may have to change the whole vibe of his bar and stop selling drinks. Bliss tells the Herald Sun that it “makes you wonder whether this law was really about tobacco or alcohol.”

Bliss seems to be arguing that the logic of a bill that is going to take him out of business is to flimsy to destroy his life work, his investments.

Bliss’s logic seems to say that if you’re going to destroy all these businesses and claim it’s a health issue, then shouldn’t the richer cigar smokers have to join in for the peoples health. And if people are gonna lose their income, it should make more sense then this why their being forced to do it.

“(The state government says) this is an employee health issue. But they automatically exempted four different types of places, and notice all those places are where the rich older males go, where the legislators are more likely to go, and they’re saying that the employees that work in the places where they like to smoke do not deserve the protection that the average employee who works in an average bar deserves.”

This is not so much about a lawsuit as about fighting a ticket on the grounds that the law is unfair,” Bliss said to the news. “We are not going to stop serving and we are not closed.”

Hookah Bliss has not yet been ticketed. Tickets are possible if the Department of health receives a complaint. The Hookah bar gets 2 warnings and then will be ticketed 200 dollars.

True Hookah King looks over first Ed Hardy Hookahs

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2010 by Abraham Appel

True hookah King has started to win a lot of respect from Ed Hardy Hookah for how he seems to want to tell his actual opinion in his hookah reviews; something that has caught him some heat from a lot of hookah bars and Hookah companies.

Being a hookah reviewer is tough. The Hookah business is filled with so many fake opinions and political back scratchings that I don’t know how someone stays honest these days. Now I’m sure Ed Hardy Hookah will not always make the True Hookah King happy. We would like it if when we did make the True hookah king happy, we knew it was because we had made a great shisha, or another great hookah. The last thing we want is to be thought of as a company that gets dishonest hookah reviews.

We are putting Hookah Kings review up, not because we’ve talked to him and worked out a deal. But because we like how he honestly speaks his mind. This time he seems to like how our hookahs look. Ed hardy hookah wants to support the honest hookah culture.

We also want to encourage the True Hookah King to stay honest. Don’t make deals with Hookah companies and don’t let Hookah companies expect anything from you. Just speak your review honestly. maybe the real market is in being completely honest in Hookah while so many are being fake.

And we also put up the review cause of what sounds like porn in the back.

getting away from bars and smoke your own hookah

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2010 by Abraham Appel

Relax. Thats the point of smoking a hookah. Smoking hookah is to appreciate the calmness of the moment as you drag in the fruit flavored tobacco.  Even if your in a party and there is dancing and laughter, the Hookah smoke relaxes you as you breath it in; gives you time to reflect.   

   

   If you are a Hookah smoker at the hookah lounges, set aside a night to get away from the hookah bars and find a place to smoke on your porch, garage or beach.   

   Go to your hookah bar the night before and order some Ed Hardy Hookah from them, so that the hookah bar still gets your business, or order online from us. And then the next night go home, watch tv and smoke an argileh (Hookah).   

respect the oldschool

 

  In the traditional way of thinking, Hookah bars do not teach the smoker to make their own hookahs. And this ruins the patience and care of creating your own hookah and relaxing to your own Hookah and shisha creation.   

Smoking Hookah should change with the times, but let yourself understand the history by getting away from the Hookah bar and smoking as they did back in the day. Invite a few friends over, make your own Ed Hardy Hookah and enjoy sometime relaxing at home with your tobacco.   

 

All to often we smoke so much at the Hookah bars that the Hookah bars become taxing on our lives. Hookah smoking is supposed to be the relaxing part of the day, not the part of the day that taxes our day.

DRINKING AND HOOKAH

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2010 by Abraham Appel

When your out with friends and having a few drinks, smoking a hookah can be the funnest thing to do. Hookah bars offer a really special chill atmosphere to relax and blow O’s. Smoking shisha is perfect for capping off a night of clubbing or a house party of drinks.

   But there are a few things you need to remember and be aware of if your gonna drink and then visit the Hookah bar.

1. If you’ve been drinking it’s best to go to a hookah bar with a really up beat tempo. Unless you’re a regular at a hookah bar that will let you get by with a few wierd steps and maybe half sentences; go somewhere that already serves alcohol and hookah, or a hookah bar that is known for its party atmosphere. If you go to a Hookah bar that is too quite you can actually really end up offending them.

  The best way to avoid offending the Hookah bar owners is to let them know your just getting some down time after the club and to let you know if your are not respectful so you can roll it back a little while smoking at the hookah bar.

 2. remember that smoking hookah dehydrates you. So be ready to drink a good amount of water if your gonna smoke after drinking or while drinking.

3. be extra carefull. Remember that these are hot coals, this is like a balancing cigarets on a pipe. So go to a hookah bar and sit somewhere with room for you to move and hen move with care.

Ed Hardy Hookah is not Starbuzz

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2010 by Abraham Appel

Immediately after Ed Hardy Hookah was rumored to be launching a rumor started spreading through the internet chat rooms that Ed Hardy Shisha is Starbuzz Shisha. The rumor has been so persistent that as I contemplated working here it was one of my main concerns as far as honesty of who I was working for.

    I have looked to see if the shishas are the same, asked people more senior in the company and can not find any evidence that we stole or purchased starbuzz tobacco and are selling it as Ed Hardy Hookah. And from my own taste buds, Ed hardy Shisha has a crisper, more sophisticated taste than Sarbuzz.

   I have always loved smoking Starbuzz. And never complain when I go to a Hookah bar with Starbuzz (which is all of them since Sarbuzz revolutionized tobacco) but still if i had to give my complete opinion I would say the Ed hardy hookah quality is crisper than Starbuzz. We at Ed hardy can’t claim to have as many flavors as Sarbuzz, but I think in full confidence we can say we are the best competitor to Sarbuzz.

ed hardy Pink Hookah

Ed Hardy Hookah’s Imagery is razor sharp. Chiseled to be above the standards of the mediocre. Ed Hardy Hookahs are Detailed and constructed while focused on the most Minute factor. This is a Superior Hookah disguised as art. 35 inches.

Pink

 Ed Hardy’s art surrounds the water-bowl. Quickly the tempo of the Hookah builds up across small shades of art cutting across the Hookah’s body-sparkle

   A third up the Hookah throat on the disco-ball are beautiful snippets of Ed Hardy’s art. This art enters the Ash balcony constructed of glass. The Hookah is topped by a Beautifully shaped and smoothed Tobacco head. The Lightweight and aerodynamic hose is lightly touched with glittery-impressions running down the hose and then with its Ultra durable and flexible frame shapes itself across the Hookah’s body.
