No longer there as of 8/24/09. Apparently, same store, different name and new location now. 203/204 G street, on the corner. They are open till 9pm on a Sunday.
The store is very big. They have one side, where its shirts, stickers, jewelry, all kinds of stuff. The other side is 99% pipes, loaders, bongs etc.. They have a huge selection here.
I didn't get the guys name, but he was very helpful. The prices for their tobacco pipes seem rather high, probably 30% so. I'm basing this on other stores of the similar type. A small bubbler was 45-50 bucks here, where as I would expect to pay 30-35 somewhere else for the same item. I don't know, maybe its been a while since I've been in the market and my pricing is skewed, but that just seems really expensive.
For those that don't know, you can always haggle on prices in places like this. If they want 50 for a pipe, offer 45 out the door for it. So really you'd save about 9 dollars that way with tax thrown in there. Some people don't like negotiating, but if you want to save money you can and you should try. If they don't budge, then maybe you need to go online for better deals.

I'd give the place 4-5 stars on selection alone, but again, prices seem rather expensive to me here.

This place had what we were looking for; my only problem is that it has a terribly lame name and a somewhat strange owner/worker. I mean, he was chill, but it just seemed like he was a prick.

The product is good- piece-wise - there is a lot of variety and a large quality range. Great place, close to campus, and big enough for it's need.

Even though Dead Zone sounds weird, their products are great. You can find all types of tobacco for your houkah (and other accessories for it) as well as plenty of comic books to feed your craving. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Nice staff.

I went to the Dead Zone novelty shop knowing what it truely was: a hookah shop. The Dead Zone sells a variety of tobacco paraphenalia, including pipes, bongs, zippos, and tobacco itself. Let it be known no illegal activity is supported here, as a big sign hangs above with the message to not mention illegal activity. You are not allowed to enter the more interesting part of the store where the bongs and pipes are kept unless you are 18+. If you are looking for novelties, look elsewhere. If tobacco products are what you're after, this is the store for you.

PROS: Good product selection
CONS: Misleading name

The Dead Zone novelty shop in Davis is located just a block off campus. The problem I had with Dead Zone is that it doesn't have the type of novelties I like to buy. I was looking for party favors and random joke items like whoopee cushions. The Dead Zone is more of a shop for those interested in tie dyed shirts and alternate forms of herbal smoke inhalation and that lifestyle. Don't go looking for funny gag gifts.

PROS: close to Davis campus
CONS: a different kind of novelty than gag gifts
