Restaurant says go ahead and phone
You can leave your Portable Cellular Phone Booth behind, if you plan to dine in an upscale restaurant in Chicago, which is giving cell phone users a special room to handle those important calls.
An alcove off the main dining room at Landmark has been designated cell phone friendly. The nook, which accommodates a maximum of three people, features walls padded in fake leather and snakeskin and a leather banquette, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday, via New Kerala.
The owners said they may put battery chargers in the room for several makes of cellular phones.
"In this day and age, I don't know one person that doesn't have a cell phone," said Rob Katz, a co-owner. "And we live in a city where the weather is crazy. Why should people have to run outside to talk on the phone?" Nice!
