SHANDONG: The shorter their skirt or dress, the less they pay for a meal at a hotpot restaurant in China’s Shandong province.
In a publicity stunt designed to reel in attractive female customers, the restaurant offers discounts of between 20% and 90% to women clad in revealing skirts, reported Shanghaiist.
An 8cm hemline from the knee will net a customer 20% off her bill, while the maximum discount requires a super short skirt that falls 33cm above the knee.
The female customers must also allow staff members to measure the front of their legs with a measuring tape.
Such gimmicks are not new in China – Shanghaiist reported in January this year that another hotpot restaurant caused a stir with its policy of allowing good-looking customers to eat for free.
The Zhengzhou establishment has a computer which scans the faces of customers. They are then judged by a panel of workers from a local plastic surgery clinic, who determines the five best-looking customers every 30 minutes. â€“ The Straits Times/Asia News Network
