Look, fellow smokers, it's probably for the best we can't smoke indoors at shows any more. It was pretty sad for everyone, and dry ice is much less life threatening, probably. If you want to have some of the ol' tobacco, there are many solutions around Dallas, all of which involve blowing smoke into the sky.
So what makes a good smoking patio? Well, it must be roomy enough that you're not making your non-smoking friends sad when they politely accompany you outside. It must be conveniently located near the actual concert. It must be shady, because the summer is no good. It should look nice, because smokers are fickle and need shiny things to entertain them.
