Talk about being anti-social? Try anti-digital.

So it would seem that rather than making good strides forward and including their customer base in the dinning experience, whilst increasing their reputation. This particular restaurant, in LA, has decided to work against that with their 5% discount offer, when you leave your phone at the door.

Featured in The Stylist weekly magazine, I spotted this weird and wonderful story on the train home yesterday. I wonder what you think of leaving your mobile phone at the door of a restaurant?

Perhaps some make like the idea, but in my experience the majority of us can’t get enough of our phones these days. Irrespective of age, or gender, we are apart of a digital shift, or didn’t these guys get the memo?

Hey, I could be totally wrong here. This could work. In my ¬†opinion is probably will work, for a short while at least, but only for a small number of people. Those who don’t have Facebook primarily.

Just when I thought we were beginning to see a wave of folks, (i.e. companies) embracing the social surge of digital media; que the above article.

What’s your thoughts? Would you take the plunge and leave your phone at the door for 5%?
