|From the Where2sing.com stories:
Smoking or Non-Smoking? I am in favor of the no smoking laws that have recently become effective in pubs Queensland, however as a host it has made my job more challenging. This is due to the new designated 'light up' areas outside the venue. During the night you might call someone up and find they’d just taken a bathroom break or possibly left the venue. Now I'm finding more frequently many singers will disappear off to the 'light up' area and not come for their song because they're smoking. It's not unusual to skip five or six singers at once because they're outside. This is not a huge problem, but certainly has added to the complexity of a nights work.
