MAPLEWOOD, Minn. All the world's a stage at some of Minnesota's bars.

A new state ban on smoking in restaurants and other nightspots contains an exception for performers in theatrical productions. So some bars are getting around the ban by printing up playbills, encouraging customers to come in costume, and pronouncing them "actors."

That law isn't going over very well. people are pretty pissed about going outside during negative 0 weather. Non smokers are pissed off because the smokers stand outside the entrance and smoke. Welcome to a liberal state.
