Pre-PAX Hookah 2014

Pre-PAX Hookah Lounge

Its time to smoke again. Before we go any further this will be at a Hookah Lounge. No outside substances; tobacco, illegal, or otherwise. It will be an +18 event only. Sorry the Lounge rules not mine.

The When
2030 (8:30 pm) On Thursday August 28th 2014.

The Where
It will take place at The Night Owl in Seattle. They were really awesome and accommodating last year and they are looking forward to us coming back again.
It is a bit of a walk so driving might be a better option; I know there is some interest already so this may be a nice place to catch-a-ride.

The Cost
Cover Charge is $5.50, that gives you a year membership so free if you are already a member. You will also need ID to prove your +18. Hookah will run around $20 for a regular bowl more for Premium. Refills are cheaper and we can all pitch in, so if you can only afford the cover charge we can lessen the cost for you while we are there. (see website in spoiler for full menu) There is no minimum ratio for people to Hookah so come out and chill even if you don't smoke. I can talk to the Lounge closer to the date about discounts once we get a better idea of numbers as well.

The Rest
This place has all kinds stuff to do but we will be bringing games as well. In the past Munchkin, Zombie Dice, MTG, 3DS, etc. have all been popular bring your favorites. I am very excited to do this again and I look forward to meeting you all again soon.

    Well every night, after convention closes, we hang out on the steps of the convention hall with cigars and pipe tobacco. You should come hang-out.

    Hookah is a good place to start for new people. You can get flavors that are not really harsh but have a good taste to them. A lot easier to smoke than a cigar for first timers :smile:

    Last year we went nuts with fruit bowls and iced hoses, theres really a ton of flavors to be had, and its a fun environment, if you're considering it, i reccomend giving the pre-pax hookah meetup a try, its been a great time every year!

    This place is really cool about new people. There is no ratio of people to hookahs, so you can come just hang out and try once if you don't like it then just chill and play games with us.

    I'm pretty pumped for this. This will be my first Prime (third PAX overall), and Boston doesn't have laws conducive to a gathering like this.

    Hoping I can chill with y'all.

    Yeah that is true. I forgot about that. It was half hidden the first time we went. Think of it as a quest...Where the reward is smoke and fun.
    Banghi sorry you can't make it but defiantly tell your buddies to stop by. We will be the large group pumped about PAX.

    We'll call them and see if they'll actually be stocked this time. Let you know when I find out.

    Do the prices seem high to anyone else? Most places around me cost $8 per person for groups of 2 or more with $6 refills, or $12 for a solo smoker with 1 refill included. This is pretty standard both for the high end lounges and the student shops I've been to (I live between Ft. Collins/Colorado State University and Boulder, CO/University of Colorado).

    I'm asking purely for my own perspective/academic purposes. I don't have a problem necessarily with the price, just wondering what people usually expect to pay wherever they're are coming from.

    TBH I was thinking the same thing, I'd love to come join in on the fun but my PAX budget this year is alright a bit tighter than normal :'( and $20 for a bowl with a single hose seem steep...

    Unfortunately its a general thing here in seattle, the prices are pretty steep, (I think it may be due to our tobbaco taxes and such, but it could just be how we roll) either way, you dont have to buy one to hang out there, just come join, maybe mooch off a hose or two (ill probably grab at least 2 hookahs and keep em running.) just come to chat and maybe get a hookah if you want!

    I meant the cigar/Pipe Tobacco smoking nightly, just when doors close or no specific time?

    Will there be any consoles (Ps3/4, xbox, etc) set up?

  • Options
    JadensmithJadensmith Lurker Surrey, BCRegistered User regular
    Negative to the consoles but card games/board games are ok to bring; there is also a pool table there. There is also a taco place below the lounge for foods.

    Talked to the manager she is excited for us. She is talking about discounts after certain amount of hookah purchased. She was non specific as to the number. She requested to not bring your own fruit for the bowls. She said she will be stocking some for us to use. See you all tomorrow night.
