By Maelinar - 1 May 2007 24

Does anybody know of any groups in Canberra that get together to adjourn in grey haze ?

What’s Your opinion?

The Hyatt humidor is no more. The management in their wisdom has dismantled it due to the smoking laws. Bit of a shame really I was staying there a couple of months ago and wanted to buy a couple of Cubans for a mate thats when i found out it was gone. The room is still there just the humidor is gone.

Nah, just ban driving near outside cafes etc.

It just annoys the shit outta me that people say “ooh cigarettes are bad” but those same people will sit outside in a cafe inhaling car fumes.

try banning driving in public enclosed places perhaps LOL 😛

Well why isn’t sucking in car fumes?

They’re more carcenogenic than cigarettes and there are a hell of a lot more cars than smokers.

LurkerGal – the smoking ban was intended for workers, not just patrons. Passive smoking is an OH&S issue.

Oh, there was a fantastic smoking lounge at the Hyatt… although that may no longer exist. And it was expensive.

Thanks LG – I’ll check it out.

There is Cahoots cigar lounge at Rydges, but it’s probably been banned by the do-gooders as well. Which kind of seems stupid – it’s a cigar lounge, if you don’t like cigar smoke, don’t sodding well go there!

Your on, but at $27 for a Greenpeas T Shirt, I’ll need more sponsors.

I’m sure there are many Canberrans who will let you lick clean their fireplaces and wood fired BBQs – the end result should be the same for yourself as an evening sucking on cigars.

I thought the Hyatt had something

When I was a chef at Daniels Of Manuka (Upstairs Style Arcade), they used to have regular cigar smoking nights.

I think Daniels of Manuka is no longer.

Anyone ?

Isn’t smoking illegal in all clubs/bars/restaurants now? If not, let me know…

try the French winebar on the corner of Jolimont. I’ll nuy you a beer if you can get a photo of yourself in there with a greenpeace t-shirt.
