Getting healthy, nailing that promotion, sorting our your finances – they’re all respectable resolutions. But frankly, they’re boring af, which is why we here at Step Out Buffalo are challenging you to really step out of your comfort zone with the Buffalo Bucket List Challenge. We know it can be difficult to constantly come up with new and exciting ways to enjoy your time here on planet earth, and more specifically Western New York, so we’re doing the work for you. Every Wednesday this year we’ll publish a new Buffalo Bucket List Challenge post with a fun / interesting / exciting / unique “task” to try.
Week 16: Try a Hookah Lounge
Hookah, so hot right now. Hookah is one of those things that can be very relaxing every once in a while, kind of like the occasional good cigar. Hookah is a water pipe with hoses connected to suck the flavored smoke through the water and up the hose, and when the tobacco is heated it can take on multiple flavors. There are several hookah lounges around WNY that offer an entire menu of hookah flavors to choose from inlucding flavors like guava twist, pineapple, watermelon mint, peach, grapefruit, and even special house blends. Follow their social media pages to see when they have themed nights or special events like belly dancing and DJs~
