The Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington, DC is offering diners a printout of the major AP news stories that broke while they were eating.

The Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington, DC is a bit of an institution among political types in the city and is just steps from The White House. Now when staffers step out to lunch, they won’t miss the breaking headlines because along with their receipt, they’ll receive a printout of the major AP news stories that broke while they were eating. The hope is that these ‘news receipts’ will help dissuade people from checking their smartphones at the table as well as utilize existing restaurant printers for a new purpose.
