CAMPAIGN DIARY: Edinburgh adulterers get 1576 tip for venue

Looking for somewhere to take that special someone for an intimate night out? Anxious that you be left in complete privacy and that none of your mates, especially your wife, finds out about your tete a tete?

Looking for somewhere to take that special someone for an intimate

night out? Anxious that you be left in complete privacy and that none of

your mates, especially your wife, finds out about your tete a tete?



Look no further than the Edinburgh restaurant, Fitzhenry.



To advertise the restaurant, the Scottish agency, 1576, shunned the

traditional promotion of its luxurious surroundings, good food and

excellent service, and opted instead to promote the discretion of the

staff. In press ads, to run in Scottish weekend papers, people are being

encouraged to bring their extramarital partners to the restaurant safe

in the knowledge that they won’t be found out.



Carrying straplines such as ’take your toyboy where the truant officers

will never find him’ and ’adulterer is such an ugly word, so we use

’sir’ instead’, we’re sure people are going to have a field day

questioning the morals of the agency and the restaurant.



We just feel sorry for the poor bloke who tries to convince his wife

that the Fitzhenry’s receipt in his wallet was from lunch with a client.
