The girl with her guitar, dog and sister wasn't they only attention grabber at the park last night. This fellow with the hookah was up the beach a hundred yards, more or less by himself with his daughter and his hookah. Who knows what he was smoking. There is no law enforcement in this park. Anything short of serial murder will not result in any police presence. Hookahs like Varsity Cheerleaders with guitars are a little out of the ordinary. But in a park where Serbian men spend all day roasting a pig on a spit, and Cossacks dance, and various marginal people pursue their private obsessions, smoking a hookah while your toddler plays on the beach doesn't really qualify as outside the norm since this beach is realized ultimate reality multiculturalism.
