How is the smoking ban going to affect outside dining areas and patios?

Asked at Massachusetts Street on May 21, 2004

“During warm months when the weather's good, I think they will be very popular.”

“I think it might affect them initially, but in the long term it won't. Business will go back to normal.”

“I don't think it'll make a difference.”

“People who smoke are only going to bother the nonsmokers outside. It's better to keep them inside.”
