Non-Smoking Bars In and Around Harrisburg

by: Sara Bozich

I have an assignment for you (I mean “you,” of course, in the collective sense.)

A reader of my column wrote to me seeking the names of area bars (that is, taverns or pubs or clubs) that are non-smoking. Off the top of my head I can only think of Fisaga Cafe in Camp Hill, and that is not currently open.

We are not looking for BYOB restaurants, but for places that serve alcoholic beverages but do not permit smoking of any kind. An exception may be a spot that has a smoking section that truly works.

I intend to make this the focus of a future column. Your help in identifiying these locations is appreciated.

Please post your information in the Comments section below, or email me.

Local Bloggers

I’m working on a story on bloggers – sort of who, how and why, but without turning into a “how to” guide or “for dummies” manual. I will cover the best ways to get started, however, so if you have suggestions (something besides blogger.com), feel free to submit those as well.

By today, I’ll be emailing some local Harrisburg-area bloggers. If I don’t contact you, and you’d like to be a part of my story, please feel free to comment below or email me.

I’m interested in what you choose to blog about, whether it’s more of a personal diary, largely politics-oriented or a local news blog (or something else!), and why you blog.

Hark! Local Internet Radio

If you scan the links on the right side of this page, you’ll find two local entertainment websites, OSHRadio and HbgOnline. OSHRadio launched just October of last year, and HbgOnline has been around for over five years. Both have all limbs into the local music and entertainment scene, and now the two entities are partnering to mesh their internet radio ventures into one all-consuming station.

Listen for a variety of talk and comedy shows – oh and hey, if you want to, they’ll let you run your own show on — get this — whatever you want.

Shows are live or taped and aim to include countdowns, news, talk shows and more.
