7th and elm has got to be one of the worst places to go in terre haute. it seems like every time I go in there is some cocky gay dude (and i mean really gay, and really shitty) that acts like a dick and expects me to tip. I work in the industry myself and I cannot believe how terrible it is at 7th/Elm. its one thing if you are busy, and food is taking awhile, but when the staff is just straight up rude for no reason, its uncalled for. get someone in there that knows what the hell they are doing and can hire good people. gay, black, white, i dont give a shit. just be cool with the people, who are by the way, PAYING YOU. oh, and good luck with the whole rap concert this weekend. i bet things will be poppin off for sure. stupid idea

7th and Elm and Mulligans are more like food service establishments and they are required to have non-smoking sections. The Bally's primary income is from alcohol sales.

When I go out for a drink I don't want to have a family of screaming kids banging into the back of my seat and just being rude and annoying.

So I choose to go to over21 only places.

Why can't people who don't like smokers just go to a place that doesn't allow smoking, and leave it at that.

No, they have to lobby for some law to make places that they'd never go to anyway, not allow smoking.

Once Indiana goes smokefree just see how many small bars have to close. part of going out for a beer is to have smoke with it.

It's really nice to see the free market working. This proves that invasive laws are not needed. The only problem is that smoke free lobbyists are instructed to allow NO Exemptions. Here are their instructions from the tax exempt political action committees that recieve millions from the makers of Chantix and Nicoderm to promote bans to increase their sales.
