Conversations with the Owners of two Smoke-free establishments

Steve Patterson of interviews Tavern Keeper Steve Smith (The Royale) and restaurant owner Mary Deacon (Crepes In The City) about their decisions to have smoke free establishments... Keep St. Louis Free has no problem with the decisions of these two business owners. Just don't force this smoke-free option on all St. Louis establishments.

Remember that the air of the Royale may be loaded with hazards that air filtration would remove and a mere smoking ban leaves behind. The air of Herbie's Vintage 72, an establishment that features air filtration yet allows smoking, may well have air that is safer that that of the Royale.
