Ed hardy Hookah to enhance your hookah smoking.

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

When we looked at the Ed Hardy Hookah’s right after they were crafted, we felt we passed the phase of simply being a company with Ed Hardy Hookah art, and signatures;  to being a company that had become a legitimate competitor based on our craftsmanship.

Despite what many have said on the internet we care a lot about how the hookah “smokes.”  We care a lot about competing with the current big dogs of Argileh smoking. We do not feel that we would have any honor if we sold you a product that was cheaply made and ruined our company as soon as someone smoked out it.  We want to respect the long tradition of hookah with brining a beautiful looking and beautiful hitting Nargileh to the market.

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.

Starbuzz Blue-mist. Smooth; sexy: just like Ed Hardy Hookah.

Ed Hardy Hookahs are good for any of the Hookah brands.

But over the last week I’ve been thinking about what Tobacco flavor is a sexy enough and smooth enough Hookah flavor that fits the Ed Hardy Hookah’s image.

What should I tell you is a flavor that you should order to go with the Ed Hardy Hookah? What Hookah flavor can add that special enhancement to your customers and make everything more special when you first start giving you Hookah friends the Ed Hardy Hookah.

smooth, sexy, shaped to perfection

StarBuzz’s Blue Mist is a flavor that I think fits the vibe of the nightclub and the super chill smoking image of Ed Hardy Hookah. StarBuzz Blue Mist is  just that deep, bite your lip and place your head back and breath out the smoke refreshing taste. StarBuzz Blue Mist is super cool with the right type of sarcastic bite.

So this morning we talked with StarBuzz Tobacco and ordered some Blue Mist StarBuzz Tobacco and as a gesture of goodwill we wanted to tell you about it.

Starbuzz Blue mist, for those who still don’t know was a Hookah flavor that revolutionized Hookah smoke. Hookah flavors had gotten stuck in only fruit names, easy to identify. Blue Mist became an instant classic at the Local Hookah bars in So Cal. And is now a staple of the Hookah smoke.

Blue Mist Hookah Tobacco Is something that I think will add to your friends and Patrons smoking out of your Ed Hardy Hookah.

response to overstatements

When I started at Ed Hardy Hookah I made a commitment to be honest, fair and to appreciate hookah culture even over the Ed hardy brand. The reason this is so important to me is because Hookah companies and their bosses today spend so much time rejecting each-other they ruin Hookah culture for the readers.

I don’t want Ed Hardy Hookah to ever be seen or act as the scared, half truth telling company that I know many other Hookah and Tobacco companies are. So many Hookah Tobacco companies act like scared and weak people forever afraid that someone will buy another tobacco or hookah. or go to another hookah bar. We need to change hookahs companies to be about the Hookah culture and its patron, not the hookah Tobacco company.

proud of our Ed hardy Hookah's

This  afraid and defensive personality permeates Hookah lounges and Hookah companies and Tobacco shops across our industry. It’s why hookah forums and the hookah community can get so twisted. It’s why so many customers never fully appreciate Hookah culture. The customer is treated like they have to be loyal to us instead of us being loyal to the customer.

Herbal hookah smoke

Ed Hardy Herbal Hookah smoke has no tobacco or nicotine or chemicals. Ed hardy Herbal hookah smoke is made from the freshest herbs for a more natural hookah experience.

In creating an Ed Hardy Hookah Herbal Hookah smoke, Ed Hardy Hookah wants to make the lifestyle of hookah available to everyone.  Make it uncomplicated and natural.

 Many Hookah companies that we compete against try to force their customers to only order the products that the company wants.

    At Ed Hardy Hookah we are a company based on meeting our customers where they want us to go. For many modern and more sophisticated Hookah smokers that means reinventing the ritual of Hookah smoking with earths offerings of herbs and flowers.

The herbal flavors of Ed Hardy Hookah will make you as happy as any brand of Flavored Tobacco. But now, it’s even more guilt free. Like ice cream that takes calories away.

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.

In san diego: try Hookah bar called The Living Room.

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

Hookah smokers are a little too much like bears hibernating every night in their cave. 

  So when we Hookah-cubs are forced out of our normal hunting grounds; we can feel a little lost. 

   So Ed Hardy Hookah is searching for the best hookah bars. We’re gonna start where we remember going over time when we left our Home base. We’re hoping you’ll suggest a few hookah bars from around the world that we can spotlight as well. 

    The first Hookah bar I would suggest to you if you were in San Diego, CA  is the Living room

Living room coffe, food and Hookah: bringing everyone together.

 

According to the Living room website “Since…1991, The Living Room has grown from its original location in the San Diego State University area, to a total of 6 Cafe’s: La Jolla, Point Loma, Historic Old Town San Diego, Southwestern College National City and Southwestern College Otay Mesa. The newest addition (was at)UCSD – Price Center (in) 2008.” 

     The Living room is a spectacular Hookah bar and coffee shop with a style that is unmatched by any hookah bar in San Diego. Sophisticated with a touch of hometown crass. A nice cross between hookah club and Coffee shop with its own set of regulars mixed with a constant newbie feel to it. 

   What makes The Living Room so special is that it is more than a place that serves shisha. It is a two-story coffee shop and restaurant in the heart of Down town La Jolla with a second story bar and hookah bar. 

    It is wonderful looking down at down town as the clubs get out and watching the people walk around and enjoying the Diego air. 

   It’s expensive. Around 20 dollars for a Hookah. But if it isnt gonna stress you out to spend that much I would suggest going down to San Diego and enjoying the vibes and the view and the great atmosphere. Another advantage of The living room is the wide variety of food.
