Half-price Sushi for Short Adults?

Last week someone told me there is a place somewhere on Beacon Street in Brookline which sells half-price sushi to adults who are under 5'. I can only find places that do that for kids. Does this ring any bells? A short friend of mine is always citing the downsides of being vertically challenged & would just love this to be true - even if it's not the best sushi!

  1. No idea- but I'd be interested in your recs for who sells half price sushi for kids!

      No recs, but found a Brookline place called Takusan via Google that does just that!

    2. Never heard of such a thing. Maybe they serve horizontally challenged fish.

      1. I really do not intend for this to sound mean or rude...but this is rediculous! It is discrimanotory and I believe illegal. Pocketviking, are you being serious? I think that I better stop here. :)

          Hey, I'm not advocating anything - just following up on a rumor!

            I can't imagine that this is illegal. You can serve a free dessert to a mother on mother's day; free dinner on a birthday; heck, you can have pink rose day and everyone who wears a pink rose gets a free champagne. How is being short different?

              well, no, you cannot give away booze, unless it's included in the price of the flower. :)

              Agree. In particular, I find the discrimanotory part of the practice just rediculous.

                1. re: ParisLady

                  Ridiculous? Perhaps

                  Discriminatory? Yes

                  Illegal? Doubtful. Unless you can dig up a law that says you can't discriminate against tall people.

                  Tall people can unite and empower themselves by not patronizing the place.

                    Not again! Those people under 5 feet tall have it so easy!!!!

                    Seriously, I doubt they do this, it's probably just for kids. But even if they do, I think it's OK to let them have it...

                    1. re: ParisLady

                      "People over 5 feet tall" is not a legally protected category. Of course it's not illegal.

                      1. Hey, that would be me. I want to know if this place exists!
