It’s a tough life being a ginger. You get banned from flying with certain airlines, people don’t really trust you, local councils go out of their way to stop you getting laid, and you’ve got to live with the fact that ginger people are on the verge of extinction.
Basically, gingers need all the help they can get, which is why we’ve got to give a shout out to Mark Linaker over in Prestatyn, north Wales who spent two years developing his Ginger’s Grill restaurant concept — which gives redheads 20% off.
Mark, who is based in Manchester and plans to expand the chain there someday, makes it clear the gourmet burger and chicken restaurant will be offering a special discount to all “genuine” redheads.
The 39-year-old describes himself as a “former ginger”, so he knows the trials and tribulations of living with red hair all too well:
I feel that gingers deserve a break, as one of my friends said to me, gingers have been getting stick for a long time now so it is time they got something back.
I am a former ginger myself before I started losing my hair and decided to shave it all off so I know what it is like to be a ginger.
The deal will be 20% off a meal for a genuine ginger.
Mark has big plans for the Ginger’s Grill concept:
I think we have a good brand and I don’t want to stop at Prestatyn.
I want this in other towns in North Wales and maybe the north west of England but it is one step at a time.
We have had delays but we are getting there and will be open in a month.
It will be happy days for gingers in the area and also ginger tourists who I hope will flock to Prestatyn.
Great idea Mark. I guess this guy won’t be needing his ‘ginger discount card‘ when he rolls up.
