SMOKING SURVEY UPDATE #2

The Vortex Smoking Survey will be active until 12 noon on Thursday January 31, 2019. So, don’t miss your chance to let us know what YOU think. If you haven’t done so yet, CLICK HERE to take the survey. I know I said my last Smoking Survey UPDATE would probably be my ONLY update, but I continue to be amazed by how helpful our faithful fans are. Less than seven days into this survey and over 10,000 people have already taken it. We’ve got three weeks to go. If this keeps up, who knows what the final count will be?

CLARIFICATION
To be clear, this survey is about our smoking policy ONLY, and nothing else. We have been getting a lot of replies that basically say, “I don’t care what your smoking policy is, but for the love of god, don’t start letting kids in The Vortex.” Be advised, if we do change our smoking policy due to the results of this survey, it will not affect our age restriction. The Vortex will continue to be a bar designed for adults. I just wanted to put that out there to alleviate everyone’s obvious concerns.

  1. As a former smoker who quit and also a frequent visitor to The Vortex if you did allow smoking inside I will no longer support you!

    1. Andrew,
      I’m confused by your claim that you are “a frequent visitor to The Vortex” but you would “no longer support” us if we were to allow smoking inside. To clarify, we HAVE allowed smoking inside both locations since we originally opened for business, and currently continue to allow smoking at the bar (but not at tables). We believe our current smoking policy may no longer be as popular as it once was, so we are using this online survey to decide whether or not we should reduce or eliminate smoking altogether. Anyway, thank you for your confusing input. And be sure to check back here in early February to see what decisions we have made.

    1. Christine,
      Our current age restriction is “21 and over,” and this policy will not be impacted whether or not we continue to offer any options for smoking. Our concern is that our smoking policy may no longer be as popular as it once was, so we are reassessing it with the help of our fans using this online survey. Thank you for your input. Be sure to check back here in early February to see what decisions we have made.

  2. I LOVE The Vortex and of course BGC… Hi Cali peeps from Diego! I’m from the 805… not that it matters, but ya’ll know good eats!!!

    1. Mike,
      Thanks for all the love. And thank you for taking our online Smoking Survey. Check back here in early February to see what the outcome is.

  3. I’m good either way. The burgers are what draw me in, not the smoking… I’m a non-smoker, but have never noticed that it was “too smoky” in there for me to eat.

    1. Jennifer,
      You sound like the perfect patron. We are happy to hear you love our burgers, and also that you don’t think our bar smells like an ashtray. Thank you for taking our online Smoking Survey. Be sure to check back here in early February to see what the outcome is.
