    I would rather go for the better food and vape before and after. :vapor:

    Thanks for the chance!

    I'm with Carrielsal on this: There are no restaurants near me that allow vaping indoors--and I have yet to see anyone vaping in outdoor restaurants either. While I would love to visit an establishment that allows vaping, I don't foresee it as a possibility near me, so I'd have to go with the amazing food and no vaping.

    I'd choose good food, unless the restaurant had some personal vendetta against vaping, then I would prefer to grab a subway sandwich or just go home for food. When I was a smoker, I would wait till I ordered, go out and smoke, go back in to eat, then go back out to smoke when I finished eating. It's no different with vaping, except I can go much longer between vaping sessions then I ever could with cigarettes!

    In the late 1990's I went to visit a friend in Florida. On my first night there we went out to dinner at a little seafood place, and I was absolutely stunned when the waitress asked 'Smoking or non smoking?' In my home state we hadn't been allowed to smoke in a restaurant for many years, so it felt like time travel. We sat in the smoking section and ordered the lobster. While we waited for our food, I lit a smoke. Because I could. The smoking section of this restaurant, by the way, was completely empty. We were the only people seated there, and we were directly under a ventilation fan. Halfway through my first cigarette, I put it out. I couldn't stand the shame of it, the guilt was overpowering. I hadn't realized how conditioned I was to think of smoking in a restaurant to be so utterly wrong and horrible. I simply couldn't go through with it. I used to smoke in restaurants all the time when I was younger and it was socially acceptable, but not any more.
    And for that reason, I'd have to say I'd pick the good food. I'm a proud vaper and while I know it isn't smoking, it would just feel wrong and weird to vape in a restaurant. It might be different in a place filled with other vapers, but mostly I wouldn't even wonder if it was banned or not, I just wouldn't do it.

    Provided the prices of the food is the same I would go with the place with the better food. If I want to vape while waiting for my meal I would be willing to go outside.

    I would rather eat at a restaurant with amazing food that has banned vaping, but I don't have a choice in Chicago anyway. Vaping has been banned indoors everywhere.

    Thanks for the contest!

    I think I'd like to try the food at a mediocre place just to have the chance to vape with others that did as well. With my recovering taste buds, the food might not be quite as mediocre as it might have once tasted. :)

    I can always sneak vape so I'd rather have awesome food instead of mediocre grub.

    I'd go for the FOOD. Even when I smoked I didn't like to eat and smoke anyway. I did like to have an after dinner drink/coffee and a smoke. If it was nice out I would just ask to go outside if they had outdoor seating and finish up my dining there.

    I'd rather eat at a restaurant where the food is amazing but vaping is banned. When I used to smoke I was always able to wait til I was done eating to go have a smoke. And I don't really vape too much when I'm in public anyways, especially in food places. I just think it's rude to people that don't vape or smoke.

    That is a really tough pick. On one hand, a nice dinner and drinks, along with some friendly conversations over a soothing vape would be delightful. Maybe meet some other vapers, try some new juices, see some custom mods. Or better yet, spark an interest in a smoker that is intrigued with all of our gadgetry, and possibly get him/her into that path of a cigarette free life!

    On the other hand, I am a very kind and thoughtful person. I would never vape around strangers, or in a public place such as a restaurant. I know that is is harmless, especially with my measly 3 mg strength, but to people that are clueless on the matter, they would be very offended, and I really couldn't blame them. And I am a sucker for good food.

    Now, if I have to pick, I would go with option A. I like the possibilities of a nice vape with some fellow friendly vapers', as I know some good discussion would swiftly come about. I can deal with a double cheeseburger and onion rings over some steak and shrimp for that kind of trade off!

    By the way, I LOVE THIS SITE! :toast:

    ive been so use to not smoking anywhere that it no longer bothered me. so when I vape I just do it at places I had smoked.
    that being said, I would go for the better food, but I would also speak with the manager to see if the understood what vaping really is or were they just joinin the band wagon so to speak.
    ty for a chance to win one of your fantastic prizes!

    I would eventually eat at both. The dh and I eat out a lot lol.

    However, if I had to choose, I'd choose the restaurant where I could vape. I don't know if I'd actually vape there or not since we've all been conditioned to not vape around other people that don't vape, but I'd love to have the choice to do so and would definitely eat there to support them.


    ETA: Edited to try and figure out which to use, chose or choose. ;)

    I'd say amazing food/banned vaping. I've never really sat down at a place and thought about vaping. I'm sure some of the places I've been wouldn't mind it, but I'm usually more focused on the food and atomosphere and the fact that I'm out of the house :p
