Gotta love the "no smoke"

I really love this "no smoking in public places" law that ILLINOIS has put into place since Jan. 1. Tonight, B1's girl scout troop was in charge of the food stand at our local bingo hall. In the past, you could definitely plan on coming home from working there smelling like an ash tray. Not tonight. It was awesome! The four of us worked all evening, selling food and soda. We also played a few bingo cards and I even won one game (there were several winners, so I got a whole $6!). But the no-smoke factor was great. Last weekend, we ate dinner one night in Missouri. When we were seated, they asked "smoking or non?". I began to think "Huh? What do you mean?" but then I remembered we weren't in ILLINOS anymore. From what I have seen at the places we have been since Jan. 1, the law is working out nicely and people are cooperating well. My lungs are happy.

I know the feeling! It has been wonderful in our state of NJ since they implimented the no smoking in restaurants and public places. I think it has been in effect for 2 years now. I hated going to Applebee's, a favorite of ours, when they had the smoking section. Because even if you are seated in the non-smoking, you can still smell the cigarettes!

I agree. I can't wait to go to Fast Eddie's!!! It should be a blast with no smoke!

We have it here in Arnold, Mo and we really like it too. Now when we go to South County it's like "why is it smoky" Ohhh we're not at home.

I love being able to take my kids to a restaurant and not be worried about their clothes smelling like smoke when we get home.
I read a blog the other day that said, "having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a pool."
Hilarious!
