I mostly agree. We had a couple of places in New Orleans that had high end sound systems years ago. They even used Mc equipment, but they were bars aimed at young singles. They may till exist for all I know. I'm past singles bars.
When we chose a restaurant to eat with family, we look for one that is quiet enough to have conversations. Most are pretty loud. To be able to hear music over the din of most eateries you would have to blast it. Then some people would avoid it due to not being condusive to conversation. Just my opinion.
it is hard to imagine that there is any choice of music that would be suitable to everyong for interrupting their conversation.
I avoid restaurants with music, especially live music.
Kal, the idea (Spiritland) is not a restaurant with music. It is a music venue that also serves food. Think of a jazz club. Which reminds me of a great put down from the vocalist Claire Martin performing at Ronnie Scotts. She starts her act but cannot continue. She stops the band and walks over to a loud table near the front. " Its terrible isn't it, you come out for a nice conversation then some bastard starts singing".
That reminds of an incident with the late great Maynard Ferguson. I don't remember if it was at Ronnie or The Blue Note in NY or somewhere else, but it was at a jazz club. Some drunk guy was being obnoxious while MF and the band were playing. Now, Maynard was a pretty fun guy and easy-going, but this drunk was so obnoxious that Maynard actually stopped the band and told the guy to shut the F up.
if that's the case, OK.
OTOH, the reason I especially avoid restaurants with live music is that, in addition to being annoyed by the intrusion, I am unhappy about being discourteous to the performers (but I am).
Kal, buddy, pal...
The guy is a goofball. 10 years on AA, and six, count 'em, six posts?
Can y'all say "phishing for email addresses"?
Goofball? Perhaps. Phishing for anything expect information, not so much. I post when I have something to say.
