State smoking ban marks 2-year anniversary

Friday, November 25th, 2005

On any given Sunday, smokers used to be puffing away inside the local Menands Diner on Broadway in Menands. The ban put an end to it and the owner, Alex Vasilakos, says business has never been the same.

Two years after the smoking ban, the small family diner is losing approximately $7,000 a month. Vasilakos says that is a lot for a small business.

Smokers used to come in and play Quick Draw while having a smoke and a cup of coffee.
The owner and workers at Menands Diner say they too enjoy a smoke-free workplace, but it comes at a price they simply can’t afford.
