I like a smoke now and then myself. That said, having a dining experience where I *don't* have to suffer through a smoker at the next table would be a *delight*. It's not like you are banishing the smokers out into the snow and having them huddle around the office building doors to get their fix. You've made a nice area outside and that should be just fine.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
