It's one of the city's principle draws for many local bars and restaurants. Often, people drive from Dallas just so they can smoke while they enjoy themselves watching sports or hearing some music. I don't know how significant the economic impact would be to places like Sneaky Pete's, but my guess is that establishments like that would not welcome a smoking ban.

I don't smoke. I quit years ago. But I strongly disagree with a government ban on smoking.

If you don't want to smell cigarette smoke, DON'T GO TO THE ESTABLISHMENTS THAT ALLOW SMOKING. It's called freedom of choice.

If you don't like the food, go somewhere else.
If you don't like the music, go somewhere else.
If you don't like the fact that alcohol is served, go somewhere else.

Why are we continuously giving away our freedom and allowing the government to tell us what we can and can't do?
