We went to a nice restaurant last night to celebrate my sister-in-law's birthday. The restaurant just opened their new multi-million-dollar dining room/wine bar/banquet facility in full Italian villa style. The food was good, although the service still needs to work out many kinks.
What really bugged me, though, was that in their classic and elegant dining room, there was a flat-screen television mounted above the fireplace. Imagine an extensive wine list, hardwood floors with mosaic inlays, 20-foot ceilings with elaborate molding treatments, tons of marble, stone fireplace - and a television showing The WB Network.
What were they thinking? Why?
