    1. I was having dinner last month and notice the smell of smoke. I suddenly started looking for who was burning something in the restaurant. I even told everybody at our table something is burning. I told the waiter and she looked around with me to see where it was coming from in the restaurant. We never could find where that smoke was coming from.
