The Missouri Court of Appeals gave Kansas City the "OK" to keep banning smoking in bars and restaurants.
On Tuesday, the court upheld the smoking ban, which voters passed in April 2008. But the fight's not over, yet.
This morning's Kansas City Star story says opponents, namely Bill Nigro of the Kansas City Business Rights Coalition, plan to appeal to the Missouri Supreme Court.
So it'll be a a while before Buzzard Beach can reclaim its title of "Smokiest Bar in Kansas City."
