Restaurant for plants   (+19, -1)  [vote for, against]
Treat your plants right

People can bring a plant or flower and enjoy a nice quit time together.

You can order nutrients from a menu, waiter comes and waters plants and brings them a table light.

Light pruning in the plant restroom.

Mozart on the stereo.

Such an establishment would fill a much-needed gap. [+]

<obligatory> "FEED me Seymore!"

Sorry. I'm trying to cut down... really I am.

this is just so.....well, nice I guess. I have a family of over 100 houseplants, so I couldn't bring them all at the same time! ;)
-- xandram, Apr 17 2011

I'd quite like a dinner for two with my pigeon.
-- po, Apr 17 2011

I'm not sure, but I don't think you'd get a meal for two out of it.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 17 2011

we both like pizza. she's very keen on cheese. she speaks well of you MB.
-- po, Apr 17 2011

Ah. Clearly a pigeon who has never met me.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 17 2011

Next up: Restaurant for stones. Take in your rock collection to be pampered by trained pebblepamperers and shinglesoothers.
-- pocmloc, Apr 17 2011

Sounds gneiss.
-- tatterdemalion, Apr 18 2011

Got slated by the reviewers, though.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 18 2011

I'd just like to point out that, if anyone is tempted to post "Restaurant for planets", where the bulkier members of our solar system are accommodated to top-up their ring system or atmospheres, it won't be big or clever.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 18 2011

Well, OK, it would be big.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 18 2011

I think it would be clever as well.
-- pocmloc, Apr 18 2011

So sweet. +

Waiter, there's a fly in my poop.
-- rcarty, Apr 19 2011


Yay global worming.
-- 2 fries shy of a happy meal, Apr 19 2011

Waiter, there's poop in my fly....oh, sorry, my pants are on backwards.
-- Boomershine, Apr 21 2011

Boom +++++ ha.
-- blissmiss, Apr 21 2011

[blissmiss] May I call you Missblissmiss?
-- Boomershine, Apr 23 2011

Since you did, you can, Oh, shinebooner!
-- blissmiss, Apr 23 2011

Very nice! [+] Though, I have no flora to go with... since my ivy died...
-- DeniqueCoelum, Apr 23 2011

And my 7 cacti died too, now I come to think of it. I'm a plant mass-murderer, I'd probably be barred from the restaurant in case I went on a rampage, uprooting the customers and defoliating them alive!
-- DeniqueCoelum, Apr 23 2011

What's that black fungus like growth that spreads like wild fire from plant to plant? Can't recall the name. But yeah, gotta have sections so they don't cross contaminate.
-- blissmiss, Apr 23 2011

Why thanks. I always think in terms of human germ, and fungus jumping.
-- blissmiss, Apr 23 2011

Zeno, have you considered some form of behavior modification therapy that would be capable of sculpting you into a socially redeeming companion capable of beguiling another human being into eating with you in public? Or would the restaurants-for-plants thing be easier?
-- MikeD, Apr 23 2011

... horrid stories about customers who mysteriously "go missing"
-- FlyingToaster, Apr 24 2011

Done that, didn't work.
-- zeno, Apr 25 2011

Try the [MikeD] peanut-butter-in-crotch technique; at least dogs will take an interest. Better than plants, anyway.
-- mouseposture, Apr 25 2011

//if anyone is tempted to post "Restaurant for planets//

Its been done. Reviews said great food but no atmosphere.
-- AusCan531, May 22 2012

You'd be surprised how loudly i laughed at this idea. It's quite funny.

I'll bet you could do it in California, new-age or hippy types may come in
-- EdwinBakery, May 22 2012

What would be on the menu? A vegetarian selection might put your leafy companion ill-at-ease. Feasting exclusively on herbivores seems very much appropriate.
-- placid_turmoil, May 23 2012

I wonder how many would take advantage and leave their dining partner to pay the check?
-- Phrontistery, May 23 2012

Does one take their rhododendron out for cocktails and an intimate nightcap afterwords? How far does this inter-kingdom relationship go?
-- doctorremulac3, May 23 2012

I think you've identified the root of the issue.
