Friends: Manuel's Tavern, located at the corner of North Ave and Highland in Atlanta, has just announced a decision to increase their smoke-free area and to be completely smoke-free in 2014.
In a recent FB post, Brian Maloof promises that Manuel's will increase its smoke-free areas, limiting smoking to the bar area only until 2014 when cancer-sticks will be completely eliminated. This brings more than a sigh of relief to thousands of customers who have hacked their way through the smoke to the small non-smoking designated area only to find no room. Thank you Manuel's for taking the risk of offending those too young or reckless to understand how dangerous smoking actually is.
Nicotine is a powerful addiction and our hearts go out to those who have suffered
through numerous attempts to quit. Even with increasingly helpful psychological
techniques and some good medications, smokers still face an average of 5-6
attempts at quitting before success. We need to support those who are trying to
quit and reach out to individuals who have yet to find a way to stop. It isn't
easy, but eliminating smoke from bars and restaurants is a huge step forward!
Thanks Brian for taking this step. Let's all support him with our patronage for this
historic and well-love Atlanta institution.
