What's That You're Smoking?

    "It's been five years since Mayor Mike Bloomberg banned smoking in bars. And no offense to Hizzoner, but if this is the best the city can do to put an end to nightlife cigarette culture, we can kiss all hope of a balanced budget goodbye." [Page Six Mag]

    We, like Page Six, doubt that Mayor Bloomberg will be hitting up Beatrice Inn, Citrine, or Rose Bar (just a sampling of the places that tend to ignore smoking), but we are curious to where else you go to lit up?

    Does smoking in bars/lounges/clubs bother you? Or is it to be expected?

    Speaking of Beatrice Inn, apparently they have a "mix" on iTunes. We have yet to confirm if this is an official compilation from a legitimate Beatrice DJ, but in case you care, here are the songs that only the hippest of the hip are listening to (on repeat):
