Children Of The Pub

With the smoking ban in full effect more children are hanging in the pub.

“The number of children we see here has quadrupled,” says Tom Peters, co-owner of Monk’s Cafe in Center City “I’m getting more baby seats. And it’s all attributable to the smoking ban.”

No longer does a favorite hangout seem forbidding or unwelcoming to parents. Rather than leave junior with a sitter, mom and dad are able to include the child in an evening interlude.
