Our Holiday Vape Party and cloud competition at Crescent City Vape’s shop on the Westbank this weekend was a huge hit. There were over a hundred people in attendance throughout the night, and over $2,000 in giveaways, including a ton of 120mil and 30mil bottles of e-liquid, plus box mods and tanks.
Amid the buzz of free beer and slow-cooked pulled pork with slaw, a slew of local shops and liquid companies were represented. The cloud comps, including an unregulated tube mod comp and a regulated box mod comp, were hosted by John Green, New Orleans vape advocate.
Alec, the creator of New Orleans e-juice company Fractal Fluids, was there vaping away on his Sub-zero mod with a Cloud Champ Plus. The giveaway included the Fractal Fluids flavor Apollonian Gasket, an artisanally top-notch honeydew melon with a variety of apples, drizzled with caramel.
Ly, hailing from The Vapor Lounge in Belle Chasse, wasn’t there just to hang out—he fogged it up, climbing the ladder to win the regulated mod competition and claiming the Decimus Box Mod/Spitfire Tank prize.
Stephen won the unregulated tube mod cloud competition, and the competition was hot, with several rounds including clouds so close to each other in size that they had to redo the back-to-back vape.
Andrew, a former graduate student at UNO and vaper using a Kanger Subox mini setup, came out from Lake Terrace to join the party.
That cloud comp was real intense. It was so cloudy I couldn’t even see the other side of the room. I had maybe five foot visibility at one point, it was hilarious. Best part was I bought ten bucks in raffle tickets and walked out with $150 in juice. I lucked out all the way and won three 120mil bottles—&Drip, Blow and Black Hole, my favorite flavor from Paradox Liquids. Pure toasted almond donut goodness.
The air was rich with delicious smells and the vibe was a perfect blend of chill and enthusiastic, with a mix of dedicated and casual vapers.
Thanks so much to everyone who attended. We hope you had as much fun as we did, and we’ll be having another event again very soon at one of our three locations. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for the word on that!
