I Won't Be Going to This Cafe

Two women sharing a kiss got told off by the owner of the 1842 Cafe in Waterloo, Ontario. Well, I guess I won't be buying anything from that place when I return to KW from my sabbatical.

The article say "necking". I would say that there is quite a difference between "necking" and "sharing a kiss".

The owner said necking, the couple says it was a peck. My real question is what is the problem with public displays of affection in this day and age? So people want to kiss a bit. What's so wrong with that? Considering the Huether Hotel has been host to some very non-friendly shows in the past this seems more like the owner just a large stick up her butt.

I meant to say not family-friendly, there have been burlesque and strip shows on occasion in the pas, though I don't know if they still host them.

The Record has also covered the story now. http://news.therecord.com/News/Local/article/691762

depending on your own acceptance of public affection in restaurants and such, it's hard to take a side on this. it's one person's word against the other, and both slightly different (re: necking vs sharing a kiss).

personally, i take the side of the owner. i feel uncomfortable if i'm sitting next to a table with people making out, and i think the owner is trying to address this for the sake of other customers.
