First Take

Yuma Sun - - NEWS - By Rox­anne Mole­nar, editor

On a re­cent trip to San Diego, we ate at a restau­rant that had mul­ti­ple tele­vi­sions tuned to sport­ing events.

But one lone tele­vi­sion, which just so hap­pened to be right in my child’s line of sight, was tuned to some­thing dif­fer­ent: funny an­i­mal videos. This is a ge­nius idea. I en­joy going to restau­rants and watch­ing most sport­ing events. It’s fun to watch a foot­ball game with a big group, for ex­am­ple, while eat­ing din­ner. Peo­ple are in­vested in their teams, and their cheers and jeers can be quite pas­sion­ate.

But not ev­ery­one loves sports, and kids of­ten have to tag along too.

Hav­ing a sin­gle TV tuned to some­thing fun that isn’t sports re­lated is an in­ter­est­ing ap­proach. My child laughed, pointed out the fun­ni­est mo­ments, and chat­ted away while those funny an­i­mal videos played, a happy camper.

It’s an in­ter­est­ing con­cept, and one that other restau­rants might want to check out.
