    I wonder how many ladies have never even tried a cigarette?

    Izabella and I are building a glass cage in the middle of the bar where the smokers will be put so we can walk around the outside, make faces at them, taunt them, and act superior. They deserve it.

    Sounds illegal but I approve of isolating them. The bar is too smoky for me to be in there enough time to talk to any lady.

    No cigarettes for me!! You can also add me to the list of non-smokers. I cannot stand the smell on me, in my hair or in my clothes. Seems like with all the smoke in the bar its hard to escape from the trail of cigarettes or smell. I prefer to smell clean, fresh and out of the shower with a spray of Gucci Guilty or Burberry Brit!

    Flint,
    Some of the non-smoking Courtesans and Ladies with respiratory problems or allergies only enter the bar and restaurant when absolutely necessary on their respective shifts. There are a few Courtesans that are essentially appointment only too. A slideshow of currently appearing Courtesans is shown on monitors in the bar. If you don’t see your Lady of interest in the bar, ask the hostess if she’s available. If it’s excessively smoky in the bar, I would ask the hostess if you and your chosen Lady may talk in the parlor or in the rear courtyard to avoid the smoke. In any case, if you know with which Lady you desire to party, ask your Courtesan to be taken to her room for negotiations. Negotiations can take anywhere from one minute to half an hour depending on the party type, menu items, explanations of specifics and if you’re enjoying your conversation.

    I asked, firefighter, because I am almost never in the bar and have not looked carefully at the screens in there.

    It’s cool!! We either put up with it, or we ask the management to open up the back door for some much needed ventilation! How are you Flint?

    Brooklyn, I am slowly recovering fro my Christmas “present”. I nominally have a low tolerance for smoky areas.

    Dear Brooklyn,
    I’ve added your name to the list of cigarette abstaining Ladies. Are there other Sheri’s Courtesans that don’t smoke or drink alcohol besides the Ladies listed?

    Dear Tatyana,

    I have you listed as a non-smoker and non-alcohol drinker too! I don’t smoke cigarettes but I have a weakness for alcohol at times.

    I totally agree, tobacco smoke is very unhealthy. I have asthma so I can’t tolerate it at all. I don’t really think about it in California, because smoking is not allowed in any bar, restaurant, other business or public building except cigar lounges and Tribal casinos. All of my smoking friends don’t smoke in the houses they’re buying either, because they don’t want the residue and smell to damage their home investments.

    It might be a good idea for Sheri’s to provide a non-smokers bar, or a place to meet Ladies out of the highly irritating tobacco smoke. The restaurant should be divided from the smokers’ bar because patrons can’t enjoy their meal with someone smoking close by. Las Vegas casinos don’t allow smoking in their restaurants. Many clients have respiratory problems that won’t allow extended exposure to cigarette, pipe or cigar smoke either.

    I understand Sheri’s is planning a modern high volume fresh air exchange system for the bar and restaurant which should help immensely. Also, several optimum efficiency ceiling fans, 70 inch blade span minimum, are needed too.

    Great idea firefighter!! I should not be exposed to smoke but do not know how to meet the ladies without having to go into the bar.

    Yes, I gave it up too, quite a long time ago. But as Flint said, I do enjoy smoking fetish parties. Can be very, very exciting!

    I’m not sure who all smokes/doesn’t, but I don’t and it really sucks when I take 2 hours getting ready, showering, smell really nice and pretty just to step into the bar and smell like 2nd hand… I wish smoking wasn’t allowed in the main shared spaces (sorry, smokers!). I appreciate good hygiene. It’s sad my clients can’t enjoy all the work I do to smell nice =(

    Xoxo,

    Juna has a valid point for banning smoking in those places.

    Flint,
    Cigarette smoking in bars and restaurants poses a definite health hazard and results in substantial damage to the facilities’ interiors. The consequences resulting from tar, nicotine, smoke and lingering offensive odors usually requires the complete gutting of the bar/restaurant inside to repair the damage; in addition, loss of employee services while ill from exposure to cigarette smoke is another hazard, not to mention medical problems caused patrons. I believe the reluctance to ban smoking in Nevada bars revolves around the fear that it may decrease revenues; however, a study has found otherwise.

    The European Journal of Health Economics
    Do smoke-free laws affect revenues in pubs and restaurants? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3249552/

    Introduction
    In many countries, the propagation of smoke-free air policies has been slowed by fears that restrictions on smoking may have a negative impact on businesses [1]. The most vigorous debate has revolved around the business activity of pubs and restaurants [2]. Debates centre on the claim that there will be a loss of revenue as a result of smokers visiting these establishments less frequently, cutting their visits shorter and spending less money than they otherwise would if smoking were permitted. Against this, it is argued that the premise that smokers would change their habits is wrong or that even if some smokers reduce their visits, it could be balanced by non-smokers increasing their visits. An extensive and growing body of literature on the economic impact of smoke-free policies in the hospitality sector shows that smoke-free air policies have no economic impact on restaurants, pubs and other segments of the hospitality industry [3, 4], with the possible exception of gaming establishments [5, 6]. However, most of this research has been conducted in regions of the world with a climate less hostile to outdoor smoking than the cold and wet Norwegian climate. In addition, many studies have also been limited to a short time period after the law was introduced, and few studies have had the data to compare and analyze the effects for restaurants and bars separately. This article contributes to the existing literature by examining the long-term effects of the law on smoke-free environments separately on the revenues of pubs and restaurants in a geographical region with a cold climate.

    The smoke-free law came into effect on 1 June 2004. The results from a comprehensive evaluation show that the introduction of the smoke-free law was followed by a reduction in airborne nicotine and total dust in pubs and restaurants, and a decline in urinary cotinine levels in non-smoking hospitality workers [7]. Service workers were also observed to have increased lung function [8], a decline in respiratory symptoms [9] and better self-reported respiratory health [10]. Hospitality workers found a total ban easier to enforce than the previous partial ban and patrons reported better air quality, increased well-being and high and increasing—especially among smokers—support for the law [11]. Population-based consumer surveys showed no significant changes in the frequency of pub/bar and restaurant visits following the implementation of the law [12].

    However, until now, no methodologically sound study has been conducted in Norway using valid, reliable measures of business activity covering the period before and after the implementation in order to separate the economic impact of the law from underlying economic trends and to allow sufficient time for businesses, smokers and non-smokers to adapt their behavior to the policy. With half of the country situated north of the Arctic Circle and the remaining parts also regularly exposed to cold winters and rainy summers, Norwegian smokers might be expected to be more affected by a law against indoor smoking than smokers living in more temperate climes. Business owners and hospitality associations therefore expressed concern when advocates of the law extrapolated evidence from research conducted in the USA and Australia and applied it to Norway. With 36% regular smokers (27% daily and 9% occasionally) at the time of implementation, Norway also had higher prevalence of smokers than most countries with such policies. We therefore hypothesized that the smoke-free law would have a larger economic impact in Norway compared to the lack of impact reported in the scientific literature on the topic.

    Conclusion.
    Our results indicate that smoke-free laws do not affect restaurant revenue directly or as a share of private consumption even in a country known for its harsh climate. There is some evidence for a short-run effect on pub revenue as a share of private consumption, but there is no evidence of a short-run effect on the absolute level of pub revenue and no evidence for a long-run effect using either measure.

    Firefighter: I agree with you and the Ladies who wish there could be a non-smoking area in the SR lounge…for all the health, smell, and sanitary reasons. But Nevada is indeed probably afraid as you say, of decreasing revenue if such a law were enacted…and they should be.
    When the beautiful Revel Casino/Hotel opened in Atlantic City in 2012, it was the first-ever smoke-free casino in AC. People stayed away in droves. Surveys showed the lack of smoking areas was a big reason. So in late 2013 they reversed course and allowed smoking…..too late. They went bankrupt twice and closed for good in September 2014. $2 billion…down the drain.
    There’s science…and then there’s reality….reality always wins.
    In this modern era, there are excellent ventilation and negative-pressure air systems that are so effective in removing smoke that you can literally sit next to a patron who is smoking in such a room, and their smoke is literally going straight up to the ceiling. That’s what the best casinos do and SR could install. Everyone wins.

    Leto,

    My intent was speaking strictly of bars and restaurants excluding casinos. However, some Las Vegas casinos have smoking bans in their restaurants. It’s true that casinos are totally different because it seems gambling, smoking and drinking go hand in hand. As a matter of fact I read a study once where smokers and drinkers gamble more often than non-smokers and non-drinkers. It’s doubtful that Nevada would enact a smoking ban in public buildings either. California has banned smoking in all public buildings except Native American casinos. A state of the art air exchange and ventilation system would be a great improvement though.
