    I have noticed in the past week or so when driving past it that the restaurant seems to be closed. Does anyone know anything about it? They had some really good pizza...

    They were closed Monday night at 8:00. We wondered if they closed. Papa John's took their business is what I heard.

    If Papa Johns actually takes business from anyplace, then they deserve to close.

    I've noticed that they are slow, but Bars & Restaurants must be going through a terrible time these days. First, the economy has had to effect their business. Despite what St. Barack tells us, the economy blows and many folks are out of work. My wife loves the Sushi there, but it's too expensive to eat there right now. The recent smoking ban has also got to be killing business in places like that, also. Ban smoking in bars; stupidest damn thing I've ever heard!

    I lived in Arizona in the 90's and they did the same thing there...and it lasted about 6 months. All the bar owners in the city started holding protests outside of their establishments against the no smoking law and, more importantly, the lawmakers who voted for it. less than two months after the rallies started, the politicians repealed the law. See, being altruistic and all high and mighty is one thing, but losing your job is a whole different deal!

    Hit 'em where it hurts, folks!!!

    the smoking ban isn't killing anything... that's the most ridiculous statement I have ever heard.

    I agree. It is impossible for a ban, which came into affect 7 days ago, to kill anything. People being cautious with their money, along with the fact that Christmas will need to be paid for soon, is my reasoning for restaurants being slow right now.

    You also have the New Years resolutioners committed to losing weight and eating healthier right now.

    :iagree: I was in a local "bar" last night and was told the customers are actually very positive about the smoking ban. The place was packed and the smokers seem to have no problem lighting up outside and some even said they like the fact that the air is clearer!

    Apparently you are a bar owner, or have previous experience with the effects of a smoking ban in them. My bad :roll:

    Knowing several bar owners, and having relatives that live in other states where smoking has been banned for years now, I can answer truthfully that the smoking ban hasn't hurt the businesses in other states, and the bar owners that I know here are looking at it as a fresh start and as a way to target an overall larger crowd that usually has a higher table turn over rate, thus resulting in higher food sales.

    While several of them think that it honestly should be up to them to ban smoking or not in their facility, they are moving forward with a very positive outlook.

    Besides if you must smoke, you can always go to the private bars/clubs or cigar bars (haven't seen one locally yet).

    Bar owner, no. Observant bar patron, yes.

    Are you a bar owner?

    I agree with this also.

    When they find that perfume contains harmful carcinogens that shorten the lifespan of the person sitting next to you then, yes, I'll be all for a ban.

    nope. neither. It's just a ridiculous assumption. period.

    and just for the record....I lived in hollywood, california when they first banned smoking in the bars and clubs in the early 90's. The grunge era of music if you will....and EVERYONE smoked. It didn't change a thing. Every club was packed, still. No change except the smell of you clothes and hair when you left.
