Yes Virginia, you can smoke cigars in Philadelphia

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In a blog I stumbled upon by Chris Mohney, Editor of Gridskipper.com (The Urban Travel Guide), he refers to a map posted in Philadelphia Magazine’s Daily Examiner showing where “brothers of the leaf” can smoke in “The City of Brotherly Love.”

“These aren’t just reader-generated tips on which bartenders will turn the other way or provide water-filled paper cups,” writes Mohney, “Rather, the map features venues that manage to get around the city’s year-old ban in some pseudo-legitimate fashion. Neither the map points nor the brief intro explains why these different bars can legally allow smoking, but a little Googling reveals that Philadelphia’s smoking laws don’t apply to any establishment where over 80% of revenue comes from alcohol.”
