One weekend, we took a drive up the Mississippi River. It’s a pretty drive and there’s some cute little towns. There was a winery with a restaurant. We decided to stop there for lunch.
When we get to the restaurant, we have the kid with us and ask for a high chair. They respond with “We don’t have high chairs. We’re a winery.” I was pissed but we’d already made our order and paid. So we stayed and he stayed with the kid in the stroller next to the table. I felt bad for the other parents of young kids who were in a similar position and were struggling with their wiggly kids on their laps.
There’s a new fried chicken place in St Louis that I’ve been dying to try. But the restaurant has high top tables and 2 booths. Having a kid in a high chair with high top tables doesn’t really work. Plus the restaurant is always crazy busy. It was a non-starter.
Having a kid changes how you see the world. What you look out for completely changes. I wish there was an app that’d help me be successful.
The world of local search for businesses and restaurants is phenomenal. Yelp, Foursquare, and Google Maps are incredible products. But I want more.
I want to ask those apps if the restaurant has high chairs. I want to ask if the restaurant has a changing table in the bathroom. Is the changing table in both bathrooms or just the women’s? This knowledge would change what businesses I patronize.
