Manhattan’s public spaces about to go smoke-free. What to do?
Smoking cigs can be lethal, and it stinks up your nice clothes. But in a nod to “Mad Men,” and other pop cultural platforms that still romanticize the butt, we suggest, not smoking per se, but at least attaining chic mementos en-memorial of a soon-to-be extinct past time once favored by driven, natty swells in the city that keeps losing its edge (but just keeps going and going). One of our favorites: a replica of an original ’21 Club’ ashtray, favored and utilized when everyone loved “this dirty town.” Go to: 21club.com to locate and purchase one of these fine little lawn jockey ashtrays. And ’21′? Doing just fine, even with its loosened tie rules.
