I want my 15 feet!!

So we just left a movie at the Pavilions and walked passed Coyote (E Coli) Ugly. There was a group of Denver Firemen panhandling for Jerry Lewis standing at the rail directly across from the main entrance where an employee was sitting on the bouncer stool right at the entrance smoking! WTF? The Smoking Ban clearly states that smokers must be 15 feet from the main entrance. Do Denver Fireman in uniform feel no sense of law enforcement? And furthermore, isn't there a panhandling ordinance for downtown too?

OMG, I love it! My favorite is when the firemen stand at intersections collecting change. Total traffic hazard.

Now, I would advise not going downtown if the 15 ft rule bothers you. These are bars ... people are drunk ... and often 15 ft from one enterance will encroach into 15 ft of another. And I'd much prefer the police - those in charge of enforcing this particular law - spending my tax dollars on protecting my safety rather than my health.

I was interested in discovering last night that the Celtic Tavern & Delaney's have a cigar bar license and thus are still smoking bars. A word of warning.
