In case you missed it, the Flying Saucer in Downtown Memphis — where you can grab a pint of 200 or so different beers — is banning smoking on July 1.
The news was delivered via Twitter at the beginning of June.
Here’s some insight from Flying Saucer regular and Downtown blogger Paul Ryburn, who says the “whole enchilada” will be smoke-free, including the garden area:
There’s been a lot of discussion among regulars about this. I personally think this is an EXCELLENT move. There are a lot of people who don’t come to the Saucer because they don’t want their hair and clothes and tube tops to smell like smoke. Now they can come back. Also, the Saucer is a beer bar. The whole point is to find new beers you like and learn about them. You’ll be able to do that much better without cigarette smoke affecting your senses of smell and taste. [source]

UPDATE: The Cordova location of the Flying Saucer is also going smoke-free on July 1. Thanks to Kenny for pointing that out in the comments.
