Award: Best Change in the Nightlife Scene
Year Won: 2010
Pick: Editor's Pick

Since January 2, we’ve been able to breathe a deep sigh of relief without having to take in secondhand smoke thanks to North Carolina’s Smoke-free Restaurants and Bars Law. This piece of legislation (in our tobacco state, nonetheless) has made it possible to bar hop to your heart’s desire and still smell smoke free upon returning home. We think the city’s nightlife scene is happier — and healthier — for it.
