I love this!


You might think that a restaurant with a sign outside that bans strollers, high chairs, booster seats and "loud" kids would be hurting for business.

You would be wrong.

The sign outside of the Old Fisherman's Grotto in Monterey, California is not a new one, but it continues to stir controversy. But that controversy, as well as the quiet atmosphere the restaurant insists upon, is excellent for business according to Chris Shake, the restaurant owner.

I love this idea. Now, if I am in a Burger King, McDonalds, Cee Cee's Pizza, etc. and there are loud kids, ok, whatever. But there are some restaurants I go to, I don't want to see or hear children.

I have no problem with this policy. They should have a family theater at the movies too. If you have to bring your children/babies (and some people cannot get or afford a babysitter...I get that) to the movies there should be a designated screen for families.
