I don't know how much cigarettes cost but it looks like the prices on this machine are more current than the latest permit ('86). That's one of the few things updated at Texas' Oldest Dance Hall, built in the late-19th century. Z and I saw Charlie Robison over the New Year and got re-acquainted with the lax smoking laws one is afforded in small town Texas. Not that I appreciate it, but I agree with it. In principle, you know. If you don't like it, grab your hat and go someplace else.
