This Restaurant Has Monkeys on the Waitstaff

They say monkeys are our closest ancestor, so why not put those freeloaders to work? Bananas aren't free, after all. With that in mind, here is a restaurant that employs monkeys as part of their valued waitstaff.

North of Tokyo, in the Japanese city of Utsunomiya, lies a simple sake-house called  Kayabukiya Tavern. Sure, they have a human waitstaff, but they also have two macaque monkeys. One takes drink orders and delivers them to the bar and the other hands out hot towels to customers. The restaurant's owner says that he is currently training more monkeys to take over more available waitstaff positions. Is this how that whole primate apocalypse starts?
