If I ever find the person who had the "bright" idea to put TVs on three of the four walls of Athens, I will drag them out into the street and pelt them with books until they recant and actually reverse the decision.

One TV, I could see (because some people here can't live without the idiot box - sad but true), but three? One on just about each wall of the restaurant? We don't need that.

Athens is good food-wise, close, and has pleasant memories associated with it. But those TVs are blighting an otherwise lovely landscape. I really wish they'd ditch at least one of them, so you'd have a place to sit where you're not facing a screen playing something you don't want to watch, but is hypnotic at the same time.

Stupid TVs. At least at other places I've been to, they confine them to one wall. Not Athens. I wonder why?

Not sure why they don't confine to one wall. Perhaps it's that they don't have sufficient wall space to contain 3 sets. Or, they want all of their customers to be able to see a game or the news or whatever, no matter where they sit in the restaurant.

You're right that it is annoying 99% of the time. But there's always that 1% - a 9/11/2001 situation, or a New Years celebration, or a playoff game (if you're into that) - where the majority of the clientele want to have a TV that's easily visible to them. I'm guessing they're probably going for a different customer base, one that wants to have the TV going, rather than the sit-down family-at-meal situation for which you enjoy the place.
