smoke-free weekAn array of Uptown bars including Barrel Proof, the Maple Leaf and Tracey’s will be hosting events and participating in Smoke-Free Week this week, and City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell will host a town-hall meeting on the subject Wednesday at Carrollton Station.

The Healthier Air for All Campaign is partnering with Councilmember LaToya Cantrell’s office to bring Smoke-Free Week to New Orleans from Monday, July 21 to Friday, July 25, 2014!

Over 100 bars in New Orleans have already voluntarily chosen to go 100% smoke-free. During Smoke-Free Week, we are encouraging even more bars to go smoke-free and “Join the Movement” for cleaner, healthier, smoke-free air in New Orleans.

This week will feature several special events, including a Smoke-Free Week kick-off celebration, smoke-free nights and/or happy hours at different bars around the city, and a party to close out the week, New Orleans-style!

Featured events include:
MONDAY, JULY 21: Kick-Off Party with the 610 Stompers at The Rusty Nail. 6pm – 8pm.
TUESDAY, JULY 22: Smoke-Free Young Professionals Networking Event at Barrel Proof. 5:30pm – 7:30pm
WEDNESDAY, JULY 23: Town Hall Meeting at Carrollton Station. 3:30pm – 5:00pm

  1. Congratulations to the New Orleans bars that have chosen to go “smoke-free” for one week. The Smoking Cessation Trust is providing free programs to help Louisiana residents that qualify become “smoke-free” for life. Visit http://www.SmokingCessationTrust.org
