Holy crap...That would take all they have...We just need to get some more raised for travel and room and look into what kind of facilities they have at the venue for those in need of relief from the sun but don't want to miss the tunes and get them there somehow. That's not too much to ask is it?

If you are able to be at your computer at 10 Central, and would like to help score tickets for Paula et al,

Yeah, drinks were more costly in there, I would usually just get one.  However, I probably a lot of time there before I was of legal drinking age, so it may not have come up that much.  I guess by college age I drank somewhere else first.

You must have been going to music clubs for prices like that. In the '80s, I was buying pints or bottles of imports around NYC for usually less than $4.00, domestics were usually much cheaper.  However, that was generally in "neighborhood" style bars, often with neon shamrocks in the windows, and the third drink was almost always free - even if you were a stranger or a newbie.

There y'go. But I remember a $6 Rolling Rock in the bars in NYC being the cheapest beer available in 1986, so I think you east coasters are screwed about 9 ways on your whole bar scene.

In other news, I got a 6-pack of Little Sumpin' Wild this weekend for $9. No contest there.

I don't care. I appreciate not having smoke in the hall, common areas, coming thru the vents, whatever. If someone on TripAdvisor says they got a nonsmoking room but that it smelled like smoke, that's a no-sale for me. So, finally, the market has decided that not a whiff of smoke anywhere is a better selling point than simply offering some non-smoking rooms. If you're really an advocate for free enterprise, well there you go. 

Long before it was common to have all-non-smoking restaurants, my coffeehouse was no smoking. Someone came in and said "I'll never come here!" and blew smoke into the room like the asshole she was. Everyone in the place laughed and shouted "Good!" And someone came along advocating for making all restaurants non-smoking by law. I said "what, and get rid of one of my biggest competitive advantages?" I had to explain to her that my competition all allowed smoking and a good portion of my daily traffic was from people who wouldn't go in those other places because of the smoke, then became loyal to us after a while.

Back in the day, when requesting a non-smoking table meant they took the ashtray off yours, we used to walk out of restaurants if the smoke was oppressive. And it often was. I don't like the heavy hand of the law entering the matter, but I voted with my feet more than once.

 
Me too. Not only do I not like being around cig smoke while eating I am actually allergic to nicotine so I get physically ill around. I was tested as a kid because people thought I was being "overly dramatic" around smokers. It kept me out of bars during college and parties with smokers (which was most all of them). 
Before all restaurants became all non-smoking I went to a Spaghetti Factory with a date and we asked to be seated in the non-smoking section. Right after we ordered a large party came in and they put a couple of tables together for them right next to use. This was in the no smoking section. And of course most of them started smoking. I got the server and complained and she said they ran out of room in the smoking area for a group that large. She refused to move us because again it was to busy. So we walked and went somewhere else. Because of my allergies I had to walk away from any restaurant that couldn't place me away from smokers.

Yep. Me too. Eating food and inhaling cigarette smoke do not go together.

Cool!

I'd patronize any forward-thinking establishment that thinks like that.  I stopped going out to clubs back in the day, largely due to the smoke, and the choking effect on my throat/lungs.  And of course, the clothes that reeked when one arrived back at home.
