For all you hard core smokers out there who want a ciggie with your meal in Canberra you still can! Want to eat some food with your cigarette? Want a welcoming environment where the management will ignore those annoying non smokers? Want to be able to tell those annoying anti smokers to F off? Well, now you can!
Come to ANU and grab a table outside of the restaurant on the upper level near the Manning Clarke Centre. Not only will you get food service to your table, but you can smoke there and management will do nothing about it. Even when people raise it with the staff three times nothing will be done about it. No smoking signs? Not at these tables. Yes, you can see them at tables closer to the restaurant, but not these ones.
No ashtrays? No worries! You can dump your buts on the ground and leave your cigarette packets on the table. They’ll still be there in the morning waiting for you.
Forgive the sarcasm, but it is beginning to get tiresome dealing with the staff of a particular restaurant at ANU who seems to have opened an unofficial Designated Outdoor Smoking Area on campus. Three times I’ve raised the issue with them and three times I’ve been told that they will do something about it. I’ve only just now realised that “something” was to ignore my complaint.
But seriously, if you do want a smoke with your meal, they will welcome you there, even if you do tell other people to F off when they tell you that it is illegal to smoke at restaurants in the ACT.
