    ...smoke free in about a week. :mad:

    They're fucking nuts. I can't *wait* to see the number of places that go out of business due to being forced to run their business the way someone else sees fit.

    Amazing how fast and how far fetched we have done the new prohibition. Where is the concept of liberty and freedom of choice? You want to be stupid, go for it!

    NC wasn't smoke free when I was there in December. The restaurant I was in, the smoke was so thick waitresses needed foghorns.

    Wisconsin is about to experience the same as MN... a loss of 20-30% of all bars and taverns.

    20-30%? This is Wisconsin. Beer country. I think we're going to lose a LOT more than that.

    Quite a few restaurants, too, since most of them had their smoking sections separated, and those smoking sections ended up being 75% of their business. There's *always* a wait to get in to smoking; never for non...

    It will not only hurt revenue for the taverns, it will hurt cigarette sales; convenience stores, etc. Encouraging people to quit smoking may be a noble thing to do, but it will have a devastating effect on businesses and tax revenue esp during a recession. Bad timing Wisconsin.
