Hey yeah we came across this humorous-ominous article on the BBC -- the place we go to get the BEST anonymous news in the world! But no this article on the BBC talks about this bar in Minnesota whose patrons used a loophole in an anti-smoking ordinance exempting performers in theatrical productions to smoke: they became actors at the bar!
So people who would normally be at bars seeing a band, of course drinking -- you HAVE to drink -- and smoking a cigarette are acting like themselves BEFORE THE BAN! Apparently using ashtrays as props and speaking in strange accents. Will this happen in Charleston when the smoking ban goes into effect this summer? You know the Empty Glass will be fine with their patio. But instead of going outside, will there be groups of actors soon in area bars?
