Today at 5 PM, the Baltimore City Council will be holding a hearing on a potential indoor smoking ban in Baltimore City. Broadcast on Cable 25, according to the Council's website, this will be a beautiful shouting match on both sides. And for bar-hoppers and live music nuts in general, this should resonate. I dont' smoke, but man, the second-hand smoke really adds to the ambience, doesn't it?
