After over two years of experience here in Chicago, now that the fanfare has worn off and the lobbyists have moved on to other states, it's clearly obvious that trying to ban smoking in small neighborhood "shot and beer" bars with adult songs on the jukebox and vending machines in the mens room is pretty useless. Many small bars in my area ignore the ban to keep their customers, neighbors, and local police (many are patrons when off duty) satisfied. In areas where real crime is an issue, the problem of panhandlers, drug dealers, hookers, and other undesirables being attracted by groups of people outside the bars and causing disturbances on the PUBLIC street, property that the owner has no control over, outweighs the issue of people peacefully smoking inside a bar, bothering absolutly no one, Chicago did not repeal the ordinance that prohibits people from congregating outside the bars. All of the complaints are from neighbors of bars that comply. It's fading into history in many small neighborhood bars
