A postprandial stroll up Franklin Street for an orange-pomegranate popsicle at Locopops, and on the way back I see that Lantern Restaurant is closed for emergency repairs — looks like the bar area has been torn up for plumping work — and then across the street Adam Bliss invites me into his just-opened Hookah Bliss, a hookah bar serving flavored tobacco — he says the tobacco is mostly from Virginia and North Carolina, gets bought up and shipped to the Middle East, and then its imported to the U.S. and aficionados of the water pipe get to smoke it right here in Chapel Hill.
