Geez. I would think at a bar there would be a reasonable assumption that people smoke there. I'm not a smoker but I think that's unfair IMO.

Bah that's a part of the bar hopping experience.

I'm not for a complete ban of smoking in bars. The best solution would be a law obliging bar owners to make separate smoker and non-smoker areas.

What I'm against is smoking in totally public areas, like bus stops, corridors in the offices etc. Really, I've been a few times in situations, when I was waiting for a bus - and a person next to me started smoking. It shouldn't be allowed.

... no, it isn't \:\-\)
