On January 1, a new smoking ordinance goes into effect in Fort Worth. The augmented ban now restricts smoking pretty much everywhere. New additions to the list include:
… within 20 feet of a regulated structure’s primary entrance or exit, in bowling alleys and in business offices. The rules also ban smoking in bars, if the business does not generate more than 70 percent of its total sales from alcoholic beverages.
Dallas smokers can expect something similar, and possibly harsher, in the next 12 months. It’s coming, people. Deal with it. For more on that, check out the February issue of D. For less on that, go here. It has absolutely nothing to do with anything. But if you like hip-hop, charts and graphs, and a bit of blue language, you’ll have some good times.
