Summer Features

"I smoke. If this bothers anyone, I suggest you look around the world in which we live and shut your fvckin' mouth." ~Bill Hicks

Miami International & Smoking Airports

Travelers are going to love this one. Welcome to summer, and hope you all have some adventures on your horizons.

For those traveling Stateside, news just came in that the TGI Fridays at Miami International Airport now has a smoking section. Miami airport sees some of the most travelers in the US every year, and the new smoking section has already been a huge success. Awesome! Even better, there are unique craft beers that you can only drink if you are in the smoking section. Cigarettes, cigars, and vapes are all welcome. Go check them out, and thanks to lilivia91 for the tip.

Do you know other airports that allow smoking? I travel a lot, and here are the ones I can vouch for:

:bulletblack: LAS, McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA: Welcome to Sin City! Of course you can smoke here. It's difficult to miss how many places you can smoke, but here are a few: the "great hall" in Terminal D, above baggage claim in Terminal 1, and the lower E Gates in Terminal 3. In proper Sin City style, this includes access to alcohol and tempting slot machines.

:bulletblack: ATL, Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Atlanta, GA, USA: From 2010 to 2015, the number of smoking restaurants and bars in Georgia has doubled (thanks again to lilivia91 for the tip). It's no surprise then that the ATL airport, the busiest in the world, has at least two smoking lounges in each concourse. If you want a drink to go with your smoke, then hit up the Heineken Bar & Grill in the center.

:bulletblack: DEN, Denver International Airport, Denver, CO, USA: There is only one place to smoke inside at Denver International, but at least there is a place. Head to the Smokin’ Bear near the C Gates. There is a $5 USD drink purchase as a minimum entrance. You could easily run into me at this one, so be on the lookout.

:bulletblack: CVG, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, Hebron, KY, USA: Cincinnati residents can look across from downtown, right across the border and into Kentucky, and ask themselves, "Wait? Why is the airport in Kentucky?" No one knows. What I do know is that there is at least one place to smoke in CVG, and that's at the Graycliff Lounge near the B Gates. It is a newer addition, and a part of the trend of smoking sections making a return to airports.

:bulletblack: BNA, Nashville International Airport, Nashville, TN, USA: I have not seen this one, but it comes from a good source. There is a store called Graycliff Cigar Company near the B and C Gates. If it exists, then there is smoking allowed, but I have no idea if it requires purchases or any other details. Much like the rumored smoking area in Tampa -- is it real? -- I wait to verify it myself.

Mad shout outs to HelenaRey, lilivia91, and michaelangelo82. Each of these Leaders of the Pack have been crazy active. They are behind the guns that fight the war. Thanks to all who contribute!

Have an incredible summer, get in as much trouble as possible, and stay up later every night. Cheers y'all!

i am surprised u don't have the smoke rings section or hookah only... 
Kantiki Featured By Owner May 21, 2015  Professional General Artist
Ah, I wish! If there was more high quality photography or art of smoke rings, that would definitely be a section. The difficulty in capturing a great shot of a smoke ring has made the shots very limited. Hookah, however, has a good presence in the Spice n Exotics gallery: the-art-of-smoking.deviantart.…

I would like more of a hookah presence, especially high quality shots of smoking shisha. I have considered taking this on myself, as I spend a lot of time in hookah bars. We will see.
zoomzoom Featured By Owner May 22, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
well. i used own one... hookah bar, but smoke capturing in the work setting was never my priority. having that said, i am planning to do a class on studio lighting sometime this year and smoke capture was one of my planned topics...

Mirai Flustered IconWTF is this?!?

This? That appears to be an emoji of the subspecies "morePLZ", and she looks wound-up tight. Someone needs to give that girl a cigarette. I'm sure any other "this" you could be referencing has just as blatantly obvious an answer.

Good idea. She'll quit screaming when she dies of pneumonia.

You see? You're with me on this. I could tell we had a thing going right from the get go. Love and kisses, darling.

Hey guys thank you for including my work into your gallery and what a fantastic gallery it is! Who would've thought there can be so much beauty in smoking. I'm not a smoker but subscribed anyway. Reminds me of "American Beauty"^^
