Will business be lost to other locales?  Pullman and all of WA is smoke free, isn't it?  I guess maybe the college kids and other patrons who smoke could drive to Troy, Lewiston, Genesse, Potlatch, or elsewhere.  Risk a DUI though, I doubt it.

" 'Politics is the art of controlling your environment.' That is one of the key things I learned in these years, and I learned it the hard way. Anybody who thinks that 'it doesn't matter who's President' has never been Drafted and sent off to fight and die in a vicious, stupid War on the other side of the World -- or been beaten and gassed by Police for trespassing on public property -- or been hounded by the IRS for purely political reasons -- or locked up in the Cook County Jail with a broken nose and no phone access and twelve perverts wanting to stomp your ass in the shower. That is when it matters who is President or Governor or Police Chief. That is when you will wish you had voted." - Hunter S. Thompson

Man do I wish I had a "9 to 5" schedule. I have spent many 
an evening in bars, taverns (hmmm,  maybe I should reword that) and 
restaurants. In this trade, you go when you're called. The point is, the 
simplistic answer is not realistic. I don't know what the answer is. Yes Kai, it 
was dismissive, and you still own the straw man, my answer is based in reality. 
I'm not going to give you a business lesson on the daily activities in a bar or 
restaurant, I'll just leave it as far more people visit on a daily basis than 
you might imagine.
 Personally though, I think controlling smoking at 
the city level is a stupid, overreaching idea. No continuity with the rest of 
Idaho will lead to unnecessary costs and revenue losses as the smokers frequent 
other locales.

 I actually excpected an answer like 
So, how often are "others" in a bar during the 
  bar's "operating hours"? They don't operate on a "9-5" schedule.
Most, if 
  not all, of the maintainance, repairs and deliveries are made while the 
  joint is closed.
So, it would seem that Mike's response is the true "straw 
There was nothing dismissive, people were whining about 
  those who are employed at smoking establishments. I made a reasonable
