News: Act now to prevent smoking bans outside bars in San Francisco

Like to light up at some of your favorite hot spots in San Francisco? Smokers should be aware of a non-smoking ordinance currently under review that will attempt to ban smoking on the patios of places such as the Hemlock Tavern, Bottom of the Hill, Thee Parkside, El Rio, Eagle SF, Lucky 13, Zeitgeist and many more.

Those interested voicing their opinion can speak out this Monday, Feb. 1, at city hall in room 263 at 2 p.m.

This movement of smoking bans is spreading across California, with Los Angeles smokers recently losing their ability to light up in outdoor cafes and food courts after a city council meeting on Jan. 20. Other locations that have already banned smoking in outdoor dining facilities include Burbank, Beverly Hills, Calabasas and Santa Monica.

The Hemlock Tavern is attempting to create a grandfather clause to exempt current smoking patios at bars. For more information on general smoking rights, visit www.smokinglobby.com.


  1. Expose the deceits and lies behind smoking bans!

    FYI: Tobacco is IN the SAME food group as potato, tomato, cauliflower, green pepper, chili’s, egg plant and other foods. They ALL contain nicotine. Are those the next bans?

  2. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification
    seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to
    you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  4. A further issue is that video gaming has become
    one of the all-time largest forms of recreation for people of various age groups.
    Kids participate in video games, plus adults do, too.
    Your XBox 360 is one of the favorite games systems
    for folks who love to have hundreds of games
    available to them, and also who like to relax and play live with people all
    over the world. Thank you for sharing your ideas.
