'Bongs' at Huckas
If you've ever been to Huckas on Boston Street, you know why sports bars and hookah bars don't mix.
We went there once, and a couple guys were smoking hookahs in the back by some comfy leather couches.
We claimed the couches and were about to look at the hookah list when one of the guys said something like:
"You guys gotta try one of these BONGS, man."
He went on about how they had bongs in different flavors, and even bought us one.
I think that was before he realized the girls in our group had boyfriends.
The rest of Huckas just feels out of place. It's huge, and feels cavernous.
And the service is unreasonably slow -- even for Baltimore.
So my advice: If you want to go to a sports bar, go to a sports bar. If you want to go to a hookah bar, go to a hookah bar.
Just don't go to Huckas. It's the worst of both worlds.
