Smoke Signals

Had my first night on the town since the smoking ban went into effect and I have a few observations.

1. The smoking ban sucks if all of your friends smoke and you don’t. As they go out front for smoke breaks, you are left alone at the table feeling quarantined until they return. I’m gonna have to start bringing my Rubik’s Cube.

2. For smokers, the sidewalk in front of bars is becoming a new pick-up scene. Case in point: Friday night, Cafe Citron hotties and Big Hunt hunks mingling during every smoke-break. Addiction to nicotine bringing two worlds of horny people together. I can only imagine what the scene in Adam’s Morgan must look like.

Prediciton: The front window tables at bars will become the hot spot for people-watching, hottie-spotting, and smoker-mocking on weekends.

    However this is great practice for when they all die before you do!

    I was out at DC9 this Saturday and the sidewalk was looking like an ashtray with all the cigarette butts littering the front of the club. Do we know if this is the responsibility of the proprietor of the club to keep the sidewalks clean and to provide some kind of receptacle?

    One recent quitter commented that he didn’t think it is fair that government should be able to impose this no-smoking law to businesses that make their money from alcohol and that businesses should be the ones to make that decision. Has anyone commented on this yet?

    Now that the ban is in place maybe I will hang out more with you guys. That way you will not be alone when they go out for a cig.

    My biggest complaint so far about the smoking ban?
    The FARTING. All that smoke was covering up a whole host of smells (including stinky bathrooms, pukey corners, sweaty dancers & passing farts). I was at the Black Cat on Saturday & walked through at least SIX people’s farts. Disgusting.
