Back in the days of the Old West, some of the more civilized saloons and casinos would require patrons to "check their guns at the door" in order to avoid ugly conflicts.
These days, at local eatieries, one is more likely to see a conflict spring from one or more customers' need to carry on a (sometimes loud) conversation on their cell phone while others are trying to enjoy their meal.
What are you going to do, right? A cell phone is like an added appendage for most people.
But running counter to the "can't live without a connection" population is one restaurant in Los Angeles that is literally paying customers to keep their phones away from their meal, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Eva Restaurant in L.A. is offering diners a 5% discount on their bill if they dump their digital devices before being seated, according the L.A. Times.
Is this something that you'd like to see happen at any of the nice restaurants in Tewksbury? Or does the idea of ditching your phone during dinner start to make you twitch?
