We may be a bit late to the party, but did you hear that one of our very own Sunshine Coast cafes is confiscating phones and tablets when you dine with them? True story.
My Place at Coolum has taken it upon themselves to bring the conversation back into mealtimes by asking guests to hand over their tech devices in exchange for a complimentary house wine or beer. A pretty good deal considering you get your phone back at the end, but don’t have to return the drink, which let’s be honest, would not be pretty. At all.
It’s all about reconnecting people IRL minus the screens. Which when you think back to your last solo coffee date where your eyes darted between your flat white and your Facebook feed, despite a cute guy aka a potential life mate sitting across the way, it’s a pretty necessary, and possibly even (love)life-changing, step.
We’re all about relationships and even though we, being Metropolist, exist online, and phones and iPads and computers are the bomb, we know that it’s people who make life, well, good. No, GREAT!
So if you’re in Coolum and think you can handle ditching your beloved block in exchange for a free drink plus a D&M with your bestie over lunch or dinner, then head to My Place asap! Because surely these guys can’t keep pouring free drinks forever.
