(For the record, the Pub is the bright spot in the story -- but you have to get to the end.)

Caption: Jen Gonyer, co-owner of the College Inn Pub, is a longtime customer of the U District bar, and would hang out at this pool table in her early 20s. Gonyer says the low ceilings created an especially smoky environment back in the day. “If you were never a smoker, you left a smoker.” (Ken Lambert / The Seattle Times)
