Heat up the night with a hookah

By Sarah Elkeaikati

The pressures of school can be overwhelming, so take a night
out. Hookah lounges, cafes and restaurants have become social
hotspots for college students: especially the under-21 crowd. It’s
the perfect place to go for a mellow environment, a slight buzz and
exotic food. Check out these four local hookah havens, all less
than 10 miles from campus.

You want hookah, but there’s one problem. It’s cold outside.
Where can you go? Aladdin Jr. is the perfect solution. With a
heated, shaded patio, Aladdin Jr. is the perfect destination for
some hookah no matter what the weather is like. Once you enter,
it’s hard to keep your eyes off the full-size aquarium filled with
live coral, and other colorful salt water creatures. The dark
indoor hookah area features flat screen televisions, purple lights
and comfortable couch seating. The friendly staff will make you
feel right at home and the hookah burns just right.

Classy and tranquil, Eden is the place to take a date. The
tables are under a dimly lit artificial grapevine and surrounded by
cascading waterfalls. Although many come to enjoy the serene
ambiance and indulge in hookah, the center of this mock-paradises’
popularity lies in the menu. The delicious Mediterranean cuisine
will have anyone coming back for more. From beef kabobs to hummus,
they offer a wide variety of entrees, as well as delicious deserts.

it’s your birthday, indulge in delectable cheesecake topped with a
festive firecracker candle, singing waiters included.
