S.F. Restaurant Celebrates with Condoms

The Locanda hands out free condoms with dinner

San Francisco restaurant Locanda has been handing out "Locondoms" for Valentine's Day.

Valentine’s Day is a time for romance, but one San Francisco restaurant is taking a position of responsibility and handing out condoms to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year.

According to Grub Street, the restaurant Locanda in San Francisco has decided that instead of handing out chocolates or candies, it would hand out custom made “Locondoms.”

The restaurant had been advertising the custom printed prophylactics saying, “For those not looking for the added responsibility of offspring, the Locanda team has once again swept in to save the day.”

While the restaurant says it has put together a menu of “sexy foods” for the romantic holiday, it says the condom program is helping it escape the kitschier aspects of the holiday.

"It's so cheesy how ladies are given a rose at a restaurant on Valentine's Day,” said chef-owner Craig Stoll. “This is our answer to that."
