Has Arlington Reached a Smoke-Free Tipping Point?
When Clarendon Grill decided to go smoke-free, they didn't mess around. Not only is there a ginormous "NO SMOKING" sign right on the front door, there are those white fliers plastered all over the windows:
Just this year, we've seen three types of places go smoke-free that cynics claimed never would never flip voluntarily:
- A sports bar (Thirsty Bernie's)
- A brew pub (Cap City)
- And a music venue (Clarendon Grill)

UPDATE: Thanks to commenter JohnAlex, I called Whitlow's, who informed me that they're now mostly smoke-free. There's a small smoking section in the back (if you've been there, it's near the beach mural). OK, so I have to change my vote, I guess ... I know it's a stretch, but I'll go with Jay's. How great would it be to have a smoke-free dive bar? Close second would be for Tallula's EatBar to go 100% smoke-free, it'd be nice to hang out in that back lounge without smelling like an ashtray afterwards.
