Yesterday, "What Hot Wings Thinks" was about a restaurant in North Carolina that was banning children under the age of 5.

The restaurant owner claims that his business has increased since the ban, as more people are enjoying eating without little kids running around, screaming, or making a mess.

Do you think any local restaurants should enact a ban of their own?

As a new dad, I'm kind of torn on this. If my wife and I want to go out to eat, we typically choose a place that is "kid-friendly". We're not exclusively eating at Chuck E. Cheese yet, but we also don't bring the stroller into the Ritz, if you know what I mean. Baby Varacchi is at the age where she's too small to run around and make a mess, but she's young enough that if she decides it's time to cry, it's time to cry. Being decent human beings, we've adopted the habit of asking for our check early, so that we can make a quick exit if things turn south.

On the flipside, there have been times (mostly before Baby Varacchi arrived) that I've been at a restaurant on the nicer side and been annoyed that someone brought a child that was being annoying.

When it comes down to it, I actually think I would support a restaurant banning kids. There are about a thousand restaurants you can choose from, so if one decides you can't bring your kid, just go to the one down the street.

What do you think?
