Put It Out!

Step one of the smoking ban in the District starts today. Any restaurant or enclosed public space that isn’t a bar or nightclub no longer is legally permitted to allow smoking. The DC Health Department has said that they won’t be out en masse to enforce the new law, but I would bet that many establishments won’t want to risk being the example.

This puts us one step closer to a no-smoking lamp being lit in the District’s bars and nightclubs as well, which makes my clothes just explode with joy. No more coming home from a night out smelling like an ashtray, thank god!

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
