Local smokers are going to have things a bit easier. According to Inquirer reports, Harrisburg has put major curbs in Philly’s smoking ban. So what does this mean for your average Philly smoker? Basically, you’re now free to light up in cigar bars, private clubs, bars where food makes up one-fifth or less of gross sales (!), charitable fund-raises where cigars are sold and one-quarter of the gambling floor at slots parlors. All in all, good news for dive bar-loving Philly smokers.
