Three Kings closed?

The past few times I've walked by Three Kings of Egypt in Federal Hill, it's been closed.

Anybody know if this is permanent?

That place used to be Amie's and my  favorite spot to hide out, play Yahtzee and smoke a hookah or two.

But we bought our own hookah and rarely went after that.

The few times we did go back, the prices kept climbing, and we recognized fewer people there.

So if it really is closed, I'm really not surprised.

they're closed temporarily. It's getting close to the time of year that they have to leave and follow that STAR


I used to love going to Aladdin's on that weird strip of road that connects Key Highway with Fort Avenue & the Southside shopping center. They had great middle eastern food and hookahs. Wasn't much to look at, but smoking a pipe in the evening, sitting out on the front deck and looking off to the water and Domino sign was pretty great. It's called the Pit Stop now and I hear one of the original cooks is still there making middle eastern food. Don't know if it's as good, or if they still have water pipes, but it's worth checking out.

Three Kings of Egypt is reopening very soon under new ownership and management. Lots of new menu items, more hookah flavors, prices, entertainment and still the best place to hang out and have fun. Watch for Grand Reopening!!!!! It will be well worth the wait. Also special College Night with great specials.
