“The Future of This Great Nation Will Be Determined By Vapers,” declares Gawker, going on to quote conservative puppet-master Grover Norquist: “I think that the next election, at the presidential level, and a lot of other levels, is going to be determined by the vaping community.” Bold claim! If that’s true, you might find some of the Leaders of Tomorrow puffing away at Vapeology 101, the latest of many vape shops to hit Williamsburg.
If you’re a #vapegirl (actual Vapeology 101 hashtag), this may be your new dream house: the emporium boasts purple mood lighting and hydraulic stools for perusing rows upon rows of eliquids behind the bar. No avant-garde art here, but they did hook customers up with some crucial munchies during the Super Bowl. The shop, which replaces a laundromat on Metropolitan Avenue, sells starter kits from brands like Aspire, iTaste, Kanger, Eleaf, and Joyetech, and liquids from dozens of producers, including Playboy (that’s right, before going nevernude, Playboy lent its bunny ears to ejuice.)
At first glance, this glowing, vapor-filled space capsule might seem a little out of place amidst the mom-and-pops off the Lorimer stop, but its aesthetic actually pairs nicely with the best-named nail salon in Brooklyn.
