Everybody's a trendmeister

Regardless of what the top trends are, what should they be?
Here's one whose time is coming, if not come:
SmokeEasies: With smoking prohibition in full bloom, the speakeasy returns, this time for smokers. Furtive establishments will feature fine- to pub-grade dining with emphasis on grilled goods to cover the smoke. Sophisticated air filtration systems will suction off evidence in case of a raid. Guests will enjoy the usual restaurant trappings but with the cigar bars, black market cigarettes at pre-tax prices, etc. Clove smoking GenXers will post reviews in a clever argot to throw off suspicion and keep out health worshippers..
Not that I'd go some place like that.
