    French, originally, meaning 'a group of smokers who meet together in the manner of a club.' It was just about to go the way of the dodo, but now suddenly a renaissance—in all of the major American cities one can find them once more, a tabagie, huddled together outside bars and workplaces and restaurants, united in suffering under the ban of their favorite activity.
    Zadie Smith
