Good idea for restaurants?

One Canadian restaurant is rewarding the parents of young children who behave at the table by giving them a discount on their bill.

Daley and Alicia Welsh were dining at Carino Japanese Bistro in Calgary, Alberta on Mother's Day with their almost one-year-old daughter Evie when they found a surprise on their check.

'When we got the bill, my husband noticed there was a "well behaved kids" discount on it and $5 off our bill,' Alicia Welsh, 34, told ABCNews.com. 'We just thought it was really sweet and really nice.'

Daley Welsh was so impressed at the gesture, he posted a picture of the receipt to Reddit, where it received 3,000 comments in one day.

'We welcome the kids and wanted to show some appreciation for kids (of course for parents!) with dining manners,' Carino Japanese Bistro owner Toshi Carino told Yahoo Shine.

Mr. Welsh described the 35-seat restaurant with no place for strollers as 'not the most kid-friendly place.' Still, he and Mrs. Welsh went to Carino before they had Evie. And fortunately for them, she was in a good mood on Mother's Day.




'Our daughter is like most babies,' Welsh said. 'She has her on and off days. We avoid taking her out if she's fussy.'

I'd have to take out a second mortgage if that were the case

blacks would cry discrimination

It will never work. Discrimination lawsuits  the SECOND you don't give one group the same discount as you did another.

Great idea.  But society sucks.

 

Jhay - blacks would cry discrimination
They just wouldn't tip (see what I did there?) Phone Post 3.0

How about a bar with a killer outdoor area that bans smoking? Phone Post 3.0

Nothing ruins everyone else's meal/movie/whatever like a shitty kid.

People that can't afford a babysitter for their shitty kid can't afford to take their shitty kid to movies and restaurants. Give that fucking brat Netflix and Chef Boyardee all day.

I'm all for this!
