Hell some of the bars here still let you smoke, well really only one that ALWAYS does that I recall, but it's such a lame bar I would never choose to go there. There's a few others that will either let you smoke once in a blue moon when it's a slow night, or let you light up at close. However, this in no way enters the discussion as to why people want to go somewhere.
Why not leave it like that? The dives (which I love, BTW) provided a legal service.
