As a smoker, one of the many things I love about Vegas is the freedom to smoke almost anywhere! Even there though, I try to be courteous about it. I don't smoke at a crowded table or bar (unless everyone is smoking), don't blow smoke anywhere near someone (especially bartenders), and will even ask people nearby if they mind if I smoke. Really never had any issues with it. There is some mention of smoking negatively on the forums here but not much - and not even close to reading posts on Trip Advisor where it seems 80% of the folks complain about it. Really? It is Vegas... isn't it kind of expected? However, with so much anti-smoking talk these days, my wife and I always laugh about how often people (non-smokers I assume) ask us for smokes in Vegas! I understand it - folks are out drinking and partying and want to smoke too... No problem! But as you other smokers probably know, it happens A LOT! And while it can be annoying, I've rarely told anyone no. A couple intersting stories from a recent trip: -Playing VP at Book and Stage by myself early one morning (to get my "free" coffee). There was only a couple of folks there so I was bullshitting with the bartender for the most part. A couple young ladies all dressed up probably still partying from the previous night sit down 6-8 seats away. After they get drinks, one of them asks for a cigarette. "Sure" I say and set the pack on the bar in her direction. She looks at me funny for a minute and looks at the bartender too... I'm thinking you want to bum a cigarette and you want me to get up and bring it to you too? I think that's what she expected... Not gonna happen missy - your not that pretty and I'm old enough to be your dad! Haha... So she sighs and finally walks over. Of course then she says "Can my friend have one too?"... Of course. Over the next hour, three more girls asked for smokes as they stopped for a drink but nothing as weird as the first one. Several also say "Can I buy a smoke for a dollar?". I think that's pretty cool and generous, but never accepted. -A couple days later at the Palms, wife and I are at the sports bar chatting and having a good time. As a guy is walking by, he stops right behind us and interupts us. "Hey I'll give you this drink slip for a smoke". I was a bit annoyed by the interuption but I tell him no problem but I don't want the coupon. He shoves it in my face and says "look, it's a real - you can use it when your not gambling". I tell him no thanks. He moves to the other side of my wife and shows her the coupon. She says no thanks but offers him a smoke. He finally says ok so she hands him one and he asks if its a menthol? Yep sure is. He says he doesn't like menthols and walks back to me and says "Can I have one of yours - their regular right?"... Now I'm kinda pissed as it seems like this has gone on way too long. "Dude, she offered you a smoke. Take it or leave it but get the hell outta here!". He took it and left. BTW, I also found out they'll comp you smokes a the VP bars there is you play for awhile. Anyway... just wanted to share some observations. Any one else feel the same way or am I just weird?
