Reportedly an Akihabara curry house is offering freebies to visitors who bring their girlfriends along to dine with them – with the caveat that the girlfriend in question can be a figure.
Those bringing their girlfriend (in the form of a figure) along to Mammoth Curry and placing her on their table will be able to claim a free drink.
Apparently the scheme was hatched upon when the venue (whose main claim to fame is a 1kg curry for ¥950) was running a more conventional “free curry for your girlfriend if you come as a couple” event for a week last year – this being Akihabara, soon many patrons were asking whether their girlfriend had to be real or not.
Those wishing to give it a try can make their way to Mammoth Curry in Akihabara, taking care to bring their girlfriend.
2ch appears to be well suited to this offer:
“They’re a bit late!”
“A doll! You’re high level all right!”
“What happens if you take a real girl with you?”
“You’ll be looked upon with cold, cold eyes.”
“The shop will think some kind of weirdo has arrived.”
“The other customers might start on you.”
