Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist
GOD! Idiots.
Dear Madison,

Not providing an exemption in the smoking ban for cigar bars is absolutely ridiculous. These businesses are built tobacco and the act of smoking. By NOT allowing them to DO THEIR BUSINESS, you will be forcing them to close. While I understand banning smoking in restaurants where the purpose is to eat, not smoke, banning smoking in places where their primary purpose is smoking is insane. One who goes to a cigar bar and is upset by the smoke should go find a somewhere else to spend their free time.

Hearts, lungs and all thing cancerous,


Edit: I'm now hearing proposed outdoor smoking bans because bars are trying to designate exterior ares for smoking areas.

Wow. That's really stupid, and I support the smoking bans -- but banning it in a cigar bar?? It's like one step closer to prohibition, and we all know how well that went...

Exactly. I hate the hell out of smoking but enjoy cigar bars quite a bit.

One place has already closed down, Cigar Room off Gammon. :( No brandy and stogie for me in this city.

It also shuts down hookah bars. This is a bit more understandable, because many of them also sell food. But still makes me a sad panda.
