So, this is the fourth hookah shop on State Street, if you count The Pipefitter? I wouldn't doubt I am missing at least one other way down towards campus, and possibly more on the cross streets.
I am not frowning on the lifestyle of their proposed clientele, but rather it seems like a dicey business plan, and none too creative.
You get the feeling that if the city enacted a 5-cent tax on boxes of shisha our budget woes would be forever solved.
