My state just enacted a statewide indoor smoking ban a couple of months ago. While my husband and I always vaped in bars, we haven't been out on the town since the ban was enacted. Another post in ECF stated that the lieutenant governor confirmed that vaping is NOT covered in the smoking ban, so we know it's legal here.
On Saturday night we met up with some friends to bar hop for my birthday. (We were walking!) I mentioned to my husband that I was excited to be able to go out and vape, but he was concerned that I'd be "making a scene." so, the first place we went to, a bar we had never been to, I stealth vaped. The next bar was one we had vaped in before, so at first I didn't stealth vape, but was discreet. The bar manager saw me and didn't comment. The bar was nearly empty (sad for a Saturday night) so we vaped openly. The manager commented that he was familiar with e-cigs. We talked a bit about me getting them a CASAA no smoking door/vaping allowed door cling and maybe table tents. He was very interested in that. I may just buy some sticker paper and print a bunch of door signs out to hand out to the bars and restaurants around town!
So, encouraged, we all walked to a few more places and openly vaped while people went outside to smoke. (Stealth vaping has the effect that you want to just inhale and blow out a big cloud as soon as you can, lol!) People asked us about them, I let a couple of acquaintances try my mocha cappuccino - which they LOVED. The bartenders all seemed familiar with the fact that it wasn't smoke and that it was not included in the indoor ban.
And I have to say, it was actually quite nice waking up this morning after a night out at the bars and not having my hair and clothes reeking from stale smoke or my throat sore from a smoke-filed bar.
Overall, a very successful and satisfying night out vaping!
