How many more bars and restaurants will go out of business because of the smoking bans in the Twin Cities?

It seemed like as good a day as any to update regular readers of this site about the (500+) bars and restaurants which have gone out of business since the smoking bans started here in the Twin Cities on 3/31/05.

Any Twin Cities readers who are familiar with other closings not reported at the above link please contact us so we can update the list.

There is no longer any doubt that smoking bans eliminate business, especially since even the state funded anti-tobacco group MPAAT, now ClearWay Minnesota, proved in this newspaper published report that smoking bans eliminate business in virtually all bars and restaurants.......the question now is how much business is eliminated due to the bans?

And the bigger looming question remains, are smoking bans justified in the first place?.......Not according to government and American Cancer Society air quality testing.
