Restaurant bans parents from having more than one alcoholic drink if they’re with kids. Fair call?
The Mirror reports, a restaurant in New York has split opinion with its controversial policy banning any diner with children from consuming more than one alcoholic drink.
Since the bar’s policy, which has been in place for several years, started circulating on social media recently it has sparked outrage among parents who disagree with the enforcement of the rule.
The restaurant refuses to serve a second drink to “one responsible adult” dining with children.
They explain the policy to customers as soon as they arrive and if anyone disagrees with it, they are invited to leave.
The policy says: “The commitment to end fatalities from drinking and driving requires all of us to participate.
“Each of us take part in this mission in our own unique way.
“We at Peddlers will limit one of the responsibilities adults to 1 alcoholic beverage while dining with children.”
Restaurant manager Melissa Gravelle explained the policy is about “giving children a voice” and reducing the chance of drink-driving related accidents, 3News reports .
“I could never live with myself knowing that I killed somebody driving,” she said. “I could never do that so and it’s a choice that you can avoid.”
Fair call! Do you agree with the rule or think parents should be able to make their own minds up?
