Jan 5, 2010 (Tobacco Reporter) — Patrons at the Juggling Gypsy Café and Hookah Bar in Wilmington, North Carolina, are continuing to smoke despite a public places tobacco smoking ban that was imposed on the state at the beginning of this year.
At the end of the smoking ban legislation is an exemption for actors working on a live production set; so, with a web cam and a streaming web site, the Juggling Gypsy has transformed itself into a stage on which all its patrons strut. All that is needed, says Best, is for patrons to sign a video release form.
The plot thickens in what is likely to be a two-act tragedy.
