Submitter may want to read the definition of "relevant".

Along with about half the other people who throw that term around online.

Will anyone really learn anything from the paper AP receipts that isn't available from their Twitter feed, Facebook page or email?

I weep for the present. Who the fark gets "news" from Twitter, Facebook or even email?

I get all my news from Fark.

Not really, but I get a lot of it here. When I want to know what's going on in the world though I still seek out actual news sources though.

Also, who the fark is Robert Griffin and why should I care about his sharp knees?

Greed wins out over a nice dining experience. Advertising and headlines on your restaurant check? I can think of very few cities where this wouldn't backfire badly. Even inside the beltway some of us just want to escape when we go out.

Some people just want to be unhappy. We are talking about a news story printed on the back of the thing you get at the end of the meal, and it would destroy his/her experience. Can you imagine having that biatch in your restaurant?

"they provide access to the news "without people becoming absorbed in their devices as at the same time contributing to table conversation and interaction."

Seeing as you don't get the receipt until you're ready to leave, I don't see how that's going to happen.

Interesting. This is the next step after putting the newspaper over the urinal. By next year, a sports bar will print out a new menu when you arrive, with sports headlines in the menu.

Nobody cares what the Assimilated Press does.

/They are part of the problem.

"We've got thousands of news-hungry Washingtonians coming to lunch, so we're giving The Latest News a shot," explained David Moran.

Not one comment on "Moran". I am dissapoint.
