Welcome To Our New Blog

While it is true that Smoke Freely VA has a website, thought it might be a good idea to have an additional source out there for some of the information that we would more than likely not put on the website. So we have started this Blog to take care of that. This Blog is listed with a rating “PG”, so if a curse word or two happens to pop up..it’s OK! Keep in mind we are in the building process, so you want to check back frequently to see what’s going on.

Let me take a moment to point out that we do have a Twitter account and you can find us there by clicking on the Twitter Button on the sidebar. Having “followers” there would be a wonderful asset for keeping in touch with out going through the hoops of sending emails.

As time goes on we will include a lot of information on smoking Restaurants, legislation changes, and of course rants. You are encouraged to leave comments, as many and as often as you want. We will also welcome visitors and comments from others outside of Virginia. Keep in mind this Blog is, for the most part, for smokers and though non-smokers have plenty to say on the subject, the comments left will be closely monitored and will only be approved if we deem them acceptable to the subject matter contained.

All of this being said…Welcome!

  3. Moe,

    On the latest “LIST” I have seen a couple of “smoke at your own risk” comments. What do these mean?

    • I should make that clearer. The owner of the restaurant is giving your permission to smoke in his or her restaurant. The restaurant is not state compliant and both he and you could be fined. Caddy’s for example is working on a non smoking patio. Once this is complete it will be a compliant restaurant. Until then. when you ask for an ashtray they will warn you that it is at your own risk. They are willing to pay their fine but you must be willing to pay your fine if caught. I was in Caddy’s yesterday and all of the smokers were smoking.

      I hope this helps.

      – Moe

  4. I just wanted to give a shout out to Bailey’s Pub & Grille on Broad Street in Richmond. I went there for the first time last night as my usual water hole (Applebee’s) has decided they do not want smokers’ money. Bailey’s invested their own money to make a separate non-smoking section. The best part is, 90% of Bailey’s available space is smoking, while the non-smoking section is only about 10%. Bailey’s obviously knows their clientele as they have a nice “This is a smoking restaurant” sign on the front door. They are fully complying with Kaine’s idiotic law, and yet are still catering to those of us who choose to smoke. I would like to say “THANKS” to Bailey’s and recommend anyone who sees this to please pay these folks a visit as they are truly sticking up for us!
