Arabian-Spa

2 Nov

Did studying for midterms keep you busy? It’s time to clear your mind and reward yourself with a weekend which I call the weekend of Arabic-Spa. This spa includes a a night with hookah, belly dancers, Arabic music and some drinking that is not what you’re used to; this time it’s included in your hookah. HUH?!

The flavors that are involved with hookah vary. The best flavors are those created by its founders and frequent users -the pros. Many people think that they know how to switch up the original method of using water with their hookah by using milk or juice products instead. Let me introduce you to a real mind-blowing method that is used by the real pros.

First, you need to forget about making the hookah with water, milk, and juice. There is a certain drink known as Ouzo Plomari that is needed to put in the hookah but this drink is hard to find at any liquor store because it is an international drink. It may be easier to find this drink in areas where there are many Arabs and Greeks such as Orland Park and Oak Lawn. It is possible to find it at any Arabic liquor store, but you would have to ask for it in Arabic which is known as Araq; and you may purchase it at a maximum cost of $20.

Another thing to change is the herbal hookah (tobacco) and purchase an Indian tobacco known as Soex which costs $9.99 a packet. This kind of tobacco is nicotine free, tobacco free, and tar free which allows you to smoke it for a long time without getting dizzy or feeling nauseate. Many lounges have this kind of herbal, and you can ask them when you request your hookah for the flavor you desire.

When going to a hookah lounge, try bringing your Ouzo drink and request that it be filled with water because some Arabic entertainment places may inhabit hookah and may not have the drink.

The best places that serve hookah around the city are based on what they serve from belly dancing shows and dinner.

For belly dancer shows, I suggest you go to the Horseshoe Casino which is a great place that offers belly dancers.

For Arabic music, do not just search for Arabic music online, but try to go to an Arabic concert. These concerts are coming soon to the Horseshoe known

Wael Kfoury

as Arabian Nights. On Friday the 12th of this month, there is an upcoming Arabic singer named Wael Kfoury that is coming to sing at the casino, along with other. You can purchase tickets from the casino website.

If you really want to experience a different but fun weekend, you may want to consider the Arabic-spa. The prices are not too expensive and will not “break you.”
