Swap your smartphone for a bottle of wine 🍷😄

How important is your smartphone to you, Pirates? Would you give it up to receive a bottle of wine? 🍷

A restaurant owner in Verona came up with a little something...

Many of us are constantly glued to our smartphones. The device, which has many practical advantages, can also become really annoying or rude if, for example, you can't put your cell phone down even when having dinner with someone.

The owner of the new restaurant, Al Condominio, a restaurant that recently opened in Verona, had enough of this sight. And came up with a great incentive: anyone who hands in their smartphone while eating in their restaurant will receive a free bottle of red wine!🙌

To do this, the mobile phone is locked in a small box at the entrance - it can then be picked up again after the restaurant visit.

The offer has been well received and 90% of restaurant visitors do hand in their phone.

Would you do it mateys?

Other restaurants in Italy are currently offering similar promotions, such as vouchers for those who voluntarily give up their phones.
