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.
