Smoke on a T.G.I.F. Patio Ruins a Meal

TGIF on Anton in Costa Mesa is the perfect place on a warm night
To enjoy a preplay repast before strolling to see Miss Saigon under the Segerstrom’s lights
Patio dining to watch people from offices or going to the play
With a Happy Hour that lasts til 7:00 p.m. what could ruin one’s day?
Sadly in a world where most rightfully fear second hand smoke
TGIF allows patrons to on its patio with their cigarettes toke
I did not have my tape measure but believe we were from the entrances within 20 feet
Having to the aroma and taste of our meals ruined by smoke we were forced to greet
My chicken wings were tasteless and devoid of drumettes
The calamari had too much batter and was a tasteless soft batter coated bet
Easier for a rich man to go through a needle’s eye
Than to find a beer at happy hour prices one would want to buye
Worse the reason for eating there was their steak and lobster tail special at a reasonable price
No mention of the special hidden on other tables that would have been nice
The service was prompt and cheerful but the management the smoking policy defended
Any chance of having to again wallow in second hand cancer causing smoke has forever ended
