Kansas City, opinion, cocktails, snark.

Yael Abouhalkah’s jittles must be all tingly at the thought.

KCK will be discussing the future of smoking within its own bars and restaurants. I keep trying to support local bars, but smoking outside’s a drag what with the homeless hitting you up for change and people in passing cars screaming “Queer!” as they drive by. Can’t a guy wear a kilt and platform sneakers without all the judgement? I guess there’s always Riverside.

Has anybody looked into that whole “private club” theory?

  1. Has anybody looked into that whole “private club” theory?

    Yup — the Germans have. That, at the moment is the only way you can have a restaurant, bar, etc. where you are allowed to smoke indoors around here. Some places are full-time smoke bars, and some are only smoke bars for the last hour or half hour of their business day. There’s talk of a constitutional challenge to the ban, but the options are rather limited, since non-/smoking rooms inside established venues were roundly rejected. Which I can understand, too — many (most?) places are simply not big enough to offer an isolation room or would require significant renovation in order to provide an isolation room even if they had the square footage to support.
