Local bars add smoke shelters
Published 12/14/2010, The Daily Republic
Some Mitchell bar owners, stinging from revenue downturns, are building covered areas to provide shelter for customers who smoke.
On Monday afternoon at City Hall, two bars received approval for smokers’ shelters from the Mitchell Planning and Zoning Commission. Thirsty’s has built a steel structure adjacent to its patio, while two casinos and a sports bar in the Village Bowl complex have plans for plastic and canvas shelters by doors where smokers can go outside for a puff.
