I'm assuming that it wasn't prompted by a law? If it wasn't, they can always change back once they realize the revenue loss.

That was a damn nice establishment. Except for the blowhard guy who ran the humidor. No hat policy, OK, I can see that. But when a man has a hat and has to hold it while he tries to shop? Back off, dude. I'll take off the hat when I get to my table.

Either way, sorry to see this.

A local cigar-friendly bar, here, called Winston's is going smoke-free inside. The local Tinder Box did most of their tastings and other events there. I gave then hell for it on Facebook. You hate to see people suffer, but I hope both places experience losses and have to reconsider.

And here it is:

If you don't do Facebook, you may or may not be able to see it. If not, reading the discussion there might be worth signing up. Holy crap are the owners getting their asses handed to them!

You're not on Facebook, I guess.

Here's another one from a different site. Responses and reactions are pretty much the same.

Probably the same guy, tall dude. Insisted on telling me after that he was an A&M fan, and that was the people's team, while Texas fans are snooty. Explained to me what a "tea-sip" is. All while forcing me to hold my hat with one hand in the humidor and try to do business. Meanwhile, through CW, we must have had 25 people at our table, Nick Perdomo passing through, Frankie Santos and the Puros Indios guys with us.

yes indeed... though your perception of "tall" and mine are a little different (LOL!)
