Bird's Nest in Garrison cited for Theatre Nights

The Bird's Nest and owner Roberta Johnson are being taken to court by the State, saying that the bar and restaurant have been in violation of the Freedom to Breathe Act by allowing customers to smoke inside while saying they are actors in a play with a script that calls for smoking. According to the Brainderd Dispatch, Minnesota Department of Health Spokesman, Doug Schultz, is quoted as saying ". . .our overriding concern is protecting the health of Minnesota's workers and citizens from hazardous secondhand smoke. We believe this is the right step to take." The civil action is to be filed in Crow Wing County District court. Roberta Johnson did not return a phone call left by K-Lakes "Blenda".
