TLP: Didn't They Try Something Like This Before in the South?
Business must be really good at the Olde Salty.
From WECT in North Carolina:
A restaurant in Carolina Beach is stirring up controversy over a couple of signs reading, "Screaming children will not be tolerated."You know the drill: substitute any group of people you like for "a bunch of kids" and the Olde Salty becomes the Old South.
The owner of the Olde Salty restaurant, Brenda Armes, is tired of having her customers complain to her about children misbehaving and screaming when others are trying to enjoy a quiet meal.
Armes says the signs have worked.
"It has been a good thing for us," Armes said. "It has brought us in more customers than it has ever kept away."
Gary Gibson was dining at the restaurant for the first time and agrees with Armes.
"It's not very enjoyable when you hear a bunch of kids screaming. It's nice to see a sign like that up," Gibson said.
"We want to attract the type of people that come in knowing they aren't going to have to sit behind a table with a bunch of screaming children," Armes said.Something tells me the Olde Salty has just begun attracting people. Wonder if the restaurant has a lunch counter?
