Xeno: Maybe the owner didn't think the effects of the smoking ban would be too damaging for business. Don't you suppose that there were a number of factors in his decision including the effects of the construction in that area? And pehaps he was harmed by the general business downturn during that period.

I've only been to BTB twice, and was not impressed with food. I consider their food to be average at best and similar to the chain restaurant style I loathe.

Well that law went into effect a few years ago, who close down now?

Ask the owners. They're the ones that sited the anti-smoking laws as one of the reasons.

The smoking ban is a very sketchy proposition. A few "restaurants" seem to be exempt where other very similar restaurants are not. It seems strange that the exempt restaurants often seem to have vehicles with various "official" markings and plates parked in front and in parking lots. Probably just coincidence I suppose. :think:

I was referring to them as being one of the establishments that still allow smoking. Sorry for the confusion.

Yes, and a very few others. One nearly next to me that allows children in on home game weekends even with smoking allowed.

Perhaps, just perhaps because BTW is on a nice corner, he got an offer he couldn't refuse from his new neighbor? Just a thought.....
