  1. Mr Yunioshi (mickey rooney) in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Could also argue that Audrey H was a miscast too.
  2. Not that I really know of, as far as enforcement (it's mainly complaint based). And yes, as long as you use discretion you should be okay. You just need to watch out more for the common idio..citizen trying to enforce their own interpretation on the law.
  3. Had one a couple of weeks ago. Still smoking beautifully. Slightly chocolaty goodness creeping in too.
  4. Unfortunately, no. Nowhere pretty much.
  5. Other than going to a park that doesn't have any children's equipment in the vicinity you're limited to where you can smoke. There's a small parkette in the Yorkville area where some smokers congregate during the day. Are you a veteran, if so maybe see if you can join the Canadian Forces and see if you can get into a Legion. The other option is to walk an smoke, I guess. As to "after hours' locations I can't help you there. Current Toronto rules are as follows: Under the City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 709-Smoking. In Toronto, it is against the law to smoke within 9 metres of an entrance or exit of any building that is used by the public. Building entrances and exits include: Municipal buildings (such as City Hall, civic centres, recreation and community centres, libraries, arenas and administrative offices) Shopping malls, stores Offices and institutional buildings Multi-residential buildings (condos, apartments and other similar residential buildings) that can be accessed by the public. For example, the smoking ban would apply if there is an entrance at street level that allows the public to enter the building, such as a lobby or foyer with a buzzer, before another set of locked doors. As of January 1, 2015, it is illegal to: smoke on and around children's playgrounds and publicly owned sport fields and surfaces (e.g., areas for basketball, baseball, soccer or beach volleyball, ice rinks, tennis courts, splash pads and swimming pools that are owned by a municipality, the province or a postsecondary education institution) smoke on all bar and restaurant patios, whether covered or not (with an exemption for uncovered patios established by the Royal Canadian Legion - Ontario Provincial Command before November 18, 2013) sell tobacco on university and college campuses (this applies to buildings that are owned and areas that are leased by a postsecondary institution or student union) e
  6. From my perspective no. There is no way in any world that a person should be subject to that kind of treatment by a profit making enterprise, for an issue that was of the airline's own making. From start to finish it was the wrong thing to do. As to the victim's life outside of the confines of that seat, no, it matters not one bit.
  7. Where I work (toronto) it's good Friday as the day off. I think schools get Monday too. Hope the stores are open that day. Otherwise I will die of boredom.
  8. You would pay the list price at the store. If the establishment offers a refund on the portion of the tax paid the store would fill out a form (need to have your passport on hand) and then you would claim it at the airport once leaving the country. I don't know if there are refunds offered on taxes for tobacco products though. For most purchases there is a minimum spend required at the store to take advantage of the potential refund. Rules on the EU to on VAT refund: http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/individuals/travelling/travellers-leaving-eu/guide-vat-refund-visitors-eu_en
  9. 520 (best smoking at this time - nuttiness and milk chocolate notes) 1966 (creaminess, and for what @bundwallah mentioned above)
  10. Sounds very eu and socialist to me.
  11. They do the same thing to lighters in Varadero. I always have a cheap bic on me that they manage to find. The four boxes of cigars in my carry on this past Tuesday? Just a question and a stamp on the factura...not even a bother to look. Three years ago I had five or so boxesin my carry on, didn't even bat an eye. Focused in on the lighter in the bag, took it, then sent me on my way. Now, the funny part of this recent trip we were the last flight out. Standing over the security gate (it's one floor down and we had a balcony view) as they're closing shop one of the guards takes big boxes near each metal detector which were all filled with lighters and starts to transfer them into one main box for easy transport to the back (I guess). As this last box is being passed from hand to hand wouldn't you know it, one of the guys palms a lighter or two as it's going by. At least the confiscated lighters are being used (some of them at least).
  12. No, the Matusalem was there. And it was amazing. I unfortunately don't know the provenance.
  13. Really? Habana Libre? Oh, wait, right. I was mesmerized by the Sir Winnie. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
  14. Here are my photos of the 4 day trip. Not too many I'm afraid, too busy smoking some cigars. Lounging around: Custom Cigar Time: A view from the other side: You Talking to Me? (yes, he decided to attack his reflection after this photo): The best for last (a lesson in cigar rolling):
