As far as you can tell? Sue *tore a building down* in response to the smoking ban. She evicted her flower-shop neighbor (who she really liked, and was heartbroken about it) to tear down the shop to build a patio. Kind of hard to notice a building being torn down. Stub and Herb's happens to be a clean, and pleasant bar with good staff (who all hate the smoking ban, by the by).
By the way, I don't drink coffee, and hate the smell of it (I suspect that there are harmful chemicals present in the vapor rising from hot coffee). Maybe we should ban that next, and then, YOU and anyone who likes to drink coffee in public places can adapt to that, or "be left out in the cold," with me and the rest of the smokers. I bet I could hire the same hacks that do ETS "studies" to do a coffee vapor study, and come up with alarming results.
