    most private events ive been to at the Cobra's are all-you-can-smoke for a flat rate, but they may charge everyone the $5 (i believe) fee for a "Lifetime" membership, as long as you dont lose your card. Plus for private parties you can have alcohol. also a plus. its a low-key BYOB affair, but its a possibility. They would probably give you all the whole place too, and its pretty spaceous, id say at least 15+ pipes with plenty of seating. They finally fixed up their website too, The Cobra Lounge. I sent them an email and ill give you a heads up when i hear back.

    Sounds awesome! Can't wait to hear the good word.

    I like the idea of an all you can smoke thing. However the problem is that we need to get money in advance for it and idk if there is enough interest to warrant renting the entire place. Also I'd like to keep it alcohol free, seeing how I am the ripe young age of 20 and there aren't many non drinking events out there for the 18+ crowd. Just my 2 cents.

    I would be most sad if another PAX event turned into a 21+ thing :(

    Sounds like a good way to start spreading the inevitable PAX flu around early. Haha.
    This sounds like fun, but my pre-PAX schedule is getting kinda tight. Sorry if I missed this being discussed, but when exactly would this be?

    AFAIK there is no set time. This would be a great Pre-Pre-Pax Dinner activity though. Get together, have some afternoon snacks and smoke a whole shitpile of shisha and then go to the Pre-Pax Dinner!

    They card for those who arent 21+, and if we get a rough number i can pass it on. I havent heard back, but I have other sources. The all-you-can-smoke is easy to arrange, if you throw enough cash down they will accomodate even with just a normal group. They are open Tues-Sun 7pm-2am, so it works well with expo hours.

    Here's a map of the directions, it's close, roughly a mile between. Map From WSCTC to The Cobra Lounge Seattle
    To reference a general location, its on the outskirts of the Triwizard bar circuit.

    edit the first post, should be able to add it there. then just link back to the first page.

    Also, heard back from Cobra today, they said "chillax, they will be in touch soon."

    A note, the lounge charges $5 for the lifetime membership fee, it is a legal thing and is NOT negotiable, even if you will only ever go once. So I would guess if we had about 20 people attend, you could charge 20-25 bucks reasonably and it would cover the all-you-can-smoke fee. Even if we dont have the whole place for that price, its large enough to be worth it.

    i was personally thinking of a thursday event... i know the bar crawl runs then.. but it makes a nice 18-20yo. event and it would be cheaper than getting it on a friday or saturday. and since they are closed monday and i have teardown to attend sunday night, i figured thursday would be best.

    also, it would be prudent to mention, this is a NO POT venue. They will kick you out with no refund and take your stash. I have seen it done. If you plan to smoke some green, do it off-site please :).

    Also, for facebook folk check out the FB event page! and invite your PAX brethren!

    I would kind of like to get in on this as it's been years since I've had hookah. One of my buddies might be interested too as he can't drink. I could bring delicious things to eat! Only thing is I couldn't make it if it's the same night as the TWDT. Only one vice per night for me.

    I've been trying to tell my friend to go! He lives in WA and is going to PAX, but the smoking thing makes him uncomfortable to go I think.

    Hello gentlemen and ladies, I never post much but I lurk in the shadows. The reason I am posting to today is for the past four years at PAX after they kick us out of the convention hall, myself and a few friends grab our pipes and tobacco and sit on the steps on the street corner smoking for a few hours. If you would be interested in joining us we show up after the PC freeplay shuts down, as it is usually the last thing that runs at PAX, we would be happy to relax and chat about the day with you all.

    That sounds fun as well, I usually go to the PC freeplay, maybe we could hit up a few games there and chill or whatever afterwards. But you should for sure come to the hookah meetup! its gonna be radical

    Not all of our group going smokes so I was going to be nice to them but the guy who doesn't smoke bailed on us for this year so I am in. I will be bringing a few guys with me as well and probably some games too. It should be a good time.

    This sounds like a sick way to start off the weekend, if I get into the city early enough, I'm definitely there.

    Do you think you can collaborate with Kropotkin who makes the forum badges into seeing if we can pick some up during the hookah? They say you can get them through "pre pax events" or if you answer a question...but the only one I ever got it from was the pre pax dinner, which is 21+ this year.

    Idk what those badges even are, but it sounds like a cool idea. I mean we seem like a legit pre-pax event :P

    OMNOM on souls you should invite all of your friend going to pax to it as well :D

    Figured i'd post to bump us on the forums. So while i'm at it i'll throw up a price layout for people.
    Q: How much does it cost to smoke hookah?
    Flavored Bowl | $14
    Premium Bowl | $17
    Refill | half price
    Lifetime Membership $5

    Q: What is a premium bowl?
    Our premium bowls are filled with shisha and infused with herbal additives. These additives include (Wormwood, Damiana, Kava Kava and Hops Flower).

    Q: What flavors do you have?

    We carry a rotating mix of flavors with a new set of 5 each night.

    So I figure since we won't all have a hookah to ourselves, people can pitch in with each other to cut the price down a bit. And this would allow for us to smoke even longer :D
