Paid to Go Phone-Silent

Big News: You can actually save money by not texting and using your phone so often.  Okay, so that’s probably no surprise to those who’ve watched their cell phone bills continue to rise – less talking and texting means less of a decrease to your wallet.  But here’s a twist you may not know about: LA restaurant EVA offers a 5% discount to anyone willing to surrender his or her phone at the door.

That may not sound like much, but owner and chef Mark Gold claims a little under half of EVA’s patrons turn over their phones to save money on dinner.  It will probably take more than a 5% discount to save restaurants from text and phone call interruptions, but it could be a clever start to bringing conversation back to the table.
