Dines. Tarpof’s. The Clock. Sneekers. Machus Red Fox. And the notorious Boom Boom Room.
Matchbooks like these were already an endangered species before the new law – as were the restaurants they represented. How many of you remember when could light up a Camel, Pell Mell or Benson & Hedges without fear of the tobacco police? Even your fellow non-smoking friends back then mostly suffered in silence.
We are using the advent of this new smoke-free era to urge you to share your memories of these gone-but-not-forgotten bars and eateries. Please post your anecdotes in the Comments section. Tell us about the restaurants we missed. Send your lengthier remembrances, as well as any photos, to firstname.lastname@example.org
