What’s Next ?

Some say that smoking bans won’t pave the way to too much government control over our lives. They say these bans are reasonable. But little by little more rights will be taken away from all of us , not just smokers. Each time a little more far reaching, until no one will be in a position to oppose anything the government wants. For America to see it’s future it need only look to those that have had smoking bans longer than us.

Here is your future, America….no don’t turn away , look at it! It’s just the beginning.


Summers Past – Virginia Beach

I decided to check out Summers Past in Virginia Beach. Smokers will like that the bar is in the smoking section. I like that the menu prices were really good. One of the ways that they help keep prices down is that they have a service charge of $1.00 for credit card sales under $10.00. Personally I like this (and I was using a credit card). Why should it jack up menu prices for everyone? Just let those that use them help pay those high rates.

Basically were talking home cooking here and pretty darn good. I love the service. Just the right amount. Don’t drive you crazy but doesn’t leave you needing anything either.

It is a neighbor restaurant, complete with neighbors. People you never meet and you feel like you know for years. I’m sure I’ll return to Summers Past in the future.

Cigar Shop Smoking.

Hey Cigar Smokers!

Another List? Well it seems so. I was contacted by Mike Banks ( known to many of you as Uncle Miky) about the idea of having a listing of smoke friendly tobacco shops. Apparently some of you want to smoke em where you buy em. It’s kinda a Cigar Smokers thing. Anyway, after some thought, I decided why not. So coming the first quarter of next year we will be presenting this new list. Much thanks to Mike for his wonderful idea and even better, agreeing to do all the work.
Tell your cigar smoking friends.

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!
