Is this what it is coming to to get people to quit checking their cell phones when dining with friends or family?
A restaurant in LA is incentivizing diners to leave their cell phones at the door, by giving them 5% off their restaurant tab.
The owner of Eva Restaurant in Beverly Hills says he want to create an environment where diners connect with each other. Imagine that? Being present for a nice night out!I wonder if other restaurants will follow suit.
But more importantly, I wonder how many people would give up their phones for 5%? If it is a $100 bill, that is only $5 off – Will it be worth it to be cell-starved while satisfying your hunger for good conversation (hopefully) and a nice meal?
Would you do it?
