Colonial Cottage Inn

When I saw this item in my in-box, I thought, "So what? Everyplace is smoke-free now." Then I saw it's in Kentucky, where smoking is allowed in restaurants. (Not to get into a huge debate here, but I hate eating around the smell of smoke. Smoke overpowers the smell of the food! Bars are another issue, but I won't eat in a restaurant where there's smoking.)

Here's an excerpt from their press release:

"Matt Grimes, owner of the Colonial Cottage Inn, is celebrating his restaurant’s smoke-free anniversary by donating $1 to the American Cancer Society for every appetizer he sells in November. Grimes’ restaurant went smoke-free last November during the American Cancer Society’s annual Great American Smokeout.
“My wife and I wanted to create a healthier environment for our patrons and going smoke-free was the logical step,” Grimes said. Grimes was very concerned that he would lose business, especially since his historic restaurant was originally built to serve tobacco farmers.
“The first couple of months we saw a slight drop in business, but quickly we returned to normal and now people really appreciate our smoke-free environment,” said Grimes. “Our patrons stood by our smoke-free policy and I am very grateful to them.”
The Colonial Cottage Inn opened in 1933 to feed the workers of the local tobacco warehouse in the Erlanger community. The restaurant is a historical landmark in the community and is noted for its home cooking and affordable prices."
