Recently, here in TN, a new smoking ban was written into law, prohbiting smoking in all restaurants and bars. However, bars and restaurants with an under-21 age restriction are exempt. As a result, many bars and restaurants have opted to become 21-and-over venues.
Coincidentally, most of these places are where I go with my father to see live music. But now, those of us who are young musicians have virtually no where to see live music. I think it's a preposterous law.
Personally, I'm against smoking (I think it's disgusting), but I honestly don't think much consideration was put into this law before it was passed.
