I RTFA, and it appears to actually be a broad-based "heartwarming scene" discount instead of a specific "well-behaved kids" discount. So hopefully there will now be a slew of absolutely non-attention whoring people descending on this establishment to deliver totally spontaneous and soon-to-be-viral heartworming scenes that will be captured artfully via vertical cellphone video.

Published discounts given based on subjective criteria. What could go wrong?

wow, so now everyone will be biatching at their waiter that their spermfruit were well behaved and adorable and they too should also receive said discount...

and no, in no way is this any sort of viral marketing...

"heartwarming scene?"  if the owner said "they seemed nice so what the heck, or some other weird reason, but heartwarming scene is too prepared to be off the cuff.

My hope is that it's something the wait staff can use at their own discretion.  So if there's something that makes their lives a little less hellish, they can give a surprise thank you to the folks in question.

If people act better in the hopes of getting a discount, well, heck, I'm okay with that.

There's a time to be succinct, and a time to be verbose. Sometimes you're Hemingway. Sometimes you're Dickens.

Can you imagine the screams if someone lured a bunch of little kids away from their parents and..........


gave them a puppy, and told them that it was theirs to keep? then send them back to their parents. That is pure evil.

Considering the grammar, punctuation, and spelling oft encountered on the internet I'd say that you are less likely to come across "The Old Man And The Sea" and more likely to come across something like "Finnegans Wake"... only less comprehensible.

I like to go full Dickens on the weekends. Sunday morning especially. During the week I prefer a lot of short vignettes.

This is genius. Parents with awful kids that they know are awful won't visit for fear of a no-discount earned shaming. Great reverse psychology.
