Come rain, cold, sleet or snow, smokers will find a way. With the 5-year anniversary of Chicago's indoor smoking ban coming Jan. 1, bartenders say they've seen little change in smokers stepping outside. "If people can afford the $10, they are going to kick out the extra $2," said bartender Giuseppe Cesolini, 30, of Hermosa. From his view behind the bar at Quenchers, he's seen little change in the amount of smokers. The same people still put the coaster on top of their beers and step into the bar's beer garden for a break.
