Bill Kozlack, the owner of Jax Cafe a Minneapolis steakhouse is quoted in this article about his fight with a local councilman after he learned that restaurants were no longer able to distribute branded matches due to the new anti smoking ordinance. “I had to explain to him that it’s one of the longstanding traditions in restaurants and bars—and I informed him that no matter how hard you try, you can’t smoke a matchbook.” That response was enough to convince the counsel that restaurants would still be permitted to distribute their matches!

“Because they don’t serve as practical a purpose any more—save for lighting candles—matchbooks have to look good.”

While we don’t entirely agree with the above statement, we do agree that matchbooks have to look good!
