With a smoking ban looming, another local restaurant has decided to cut off smoking in the building.
Sammy’s Lounge on Jolly Road in Lansing has been a staple of the South side for 53 years. People could walk in without reservation and enjoy a meal, a drink, and yes, a smoke. That ended Thursday. Sammy’s went smoke-free in an effort to get ahead of the curve, as owner Mark Corey puts it. The curve being a statewide smoking ban.
I drove by Sammy’s today and the sign says the restaurant is smoke free, so I’m guessing the bar is not. Either way, it’s a step in the right direction.
