Hey Kids...Cigarette Machine Found in Hartford!

Everyone knows 80's Retro is in right now. Bret Michaels recently won Celebrity Apprentice and graces the cover of gossip magazines. (Though I'm still not sure who those four girls are on the Poison album cover.) A re-make of The Karate Kid is currently in theaters. 

Hartford bar, The Pig's Eye Pub, keeps Hartford on the cutting edge of trends by having a cigarette vending machine in side the bar. With this throwback tobacco dispenser, the Pig's Eye Pub thumbs it's nose at the health trends overtaking the 20-10's. 

What is this decade called anyway? The 20-10's? the teens, the i2teens? Did we ever come to a consensus on what the last decade was called? Is all this confusion why we yearn for the 80's and 90's? Simpler and purer times when we actually knew what to call the decade we were living in? 

Regardless, good job to the Pig's Eye Pub for keeping Hartford on the cutting edge of trends and bringing us back to a time when smoking was cool and we could all enjoy a nice puff.
