There's a push to make Long Beach 100 percent smoke free when it comes to outdoor dining.

More than 30 restaurants are slated to join the Fresh Air Dining LB movement starting Thursday.

It's a new program designed to provide smoke-free outdoor dining options for residents and visitors.

According to a recent poll, 80 percent of Long Beach diners prefer to dine at restaurants with smoke-free patios.
