Nifty hitting the 50’s!

GNHR T-BONES Salem 1 Comment

In Salem we had a couple Ruth and Stanley Choate dining with us yesterday celebrating their 54th wedding anniversary.  I recognized them from visiting our Hudson location every Sunday and learned of their milestone while stopping to say hello.  Took care of their food and presented them with a $54 GC for next time.  Quite thrilled and excited to Pay it Forward!

And today we had Jack and Alice dining with us after hitting 50 years last Friday. Visited with them for a few minutes and learned that over the 50 years they learned to “compromise and communicate” that’s what got them to their milestone!   We presented them with a $50 GC and bought their meals!

Congratulations to both couples!

new daddy

Last night Aidan took a take out over the phone from a new dad who was coming in to grab food for himself and his wife. He asked me if there was anything we could do for him as he was elated and couldn’t wait to share he had just had a baby. I asked him to call him back and see if we could interest them in some desserts. When he came in to pick up his food I surprised him with a dining certificate so he and his wife could come out to dinner when they could get a babysitter and have some time to themselves. He was incredibly appreciative and just made his special day even better.

First Time!

Tonight I was told about how great Shaun was in explaining everything there was to know about T-BONES (menu, history, etc.) to a couple of first time guests.  He took the time to review menu items, things that can be modified or substituted.  I went by the table and thanked them for coming out to Salem T-BONES.  The guest stated that they “have driven by many, many times and have never stopped”.  Tonight she asked her daughter “hey how about T-BONES”?   The daughter agreed.  They thoroughly enjoyed the service from Shaun and will be back!  I presented them with a gift certificate to come back again!   Newly made guests/friends!

Started Something Big

Yesterday we RAK’d a family who’s been going through some tough times. A member of their family has a terminal disease and is being treated for a blood infection. This has been an ongoing series of treatments in and out of the hospital for a variety of reasons related to cancer. When the family came in yesterday we wanted to spread some light into their world since they had spent the day at the hospital. We bought their dinner and then presented them with a few Gift Cards that they could share with those they wanted to thank or just shed some light to their day as we had theirs. Today they came in and bought $500 worth of gift certificates so they could thank the people surrounding their family members care and have been sharing them at the hospital. They wanted to keep going what we started. What a pretty big set of events we put in motion.

Karma in Full Circle

Tonight I had a guest approach me, wanting to share that his server was doing an excellent job. She is a newer server and he was worried that another one of her tables was being difficult. He expressed that she was handling it very well. This man went above and beyond to make sure I was aware of the situation and that the server was taken care of, because of this I chose to RAK the table. He was taken back, and told me that he really does believe in karma.

Childhood Sweethearts

We had a couple in celebrating their anniversary and from the moment they walked in they shared their story and love for each other. When they shared their story with Danika she came bouncing in to me and asked if we could please RAK this couple. They shared 43 years of marriage and additional years of courting. The wife had brought a quilt she made for her husband who was doting over his loving wife and thoughtful gift. So we let them enjoy their time together and then went over to share more positive vibes. I shared my envy of the time they have shared and wished them many years more of happiness and well being when I told them they had their bill paid for. They hugged me and continued to share their story as they were leaving the building. It was then that I learned they had been together since they were 19 years old and ironically their siblings had married each other and were celebrating over 30 years together!  We can only ever hope to share that many years of love 🙂

Good Deed Done Double

A woman was dining by herself and couldn’t pay for her bill. She thought the card she had with her would cover the cost and said she had forgotten her purse. Well her card declined so the server discreetly gave her a Gift Card to pay for her bill. After we had taken care of things her friend brought her her purse. She in turn bought someone else’s dinner to show thanks for our gracious act so we gave her a RAK card to come back to continue the kindness

Family Birthday

GNHR T-BONES Hudson 1 Comment

A party of 6 came in for a double birthday, the mother turning 65 and her son turning 35 on the same day. Both are regulars as well as the rest of the family although they usually come in at different times. It was nice to see them all together! I decided we needed to make it even better and RAK the table. They were beyond appreciative. So glad we could make their night.

Happy Couple

Today we had a visit from guests who were celebrating their recent engagement with a large party. They chose to come to Bedford T-BONES because this was the place they met for their very first date! I saw this as the perfect opportunity to pay it forward with a RAK! I gave the happy couple a gift certificate to come back to join us for their next milestone: their first meal as a married couple! They were so thankful and appreciative and told me that this was the reason that T-BONES is their favorite restaurant! Even better, they mentioned that they volunteer regularly at Veteran’s events and the RAK certificate is going to be used to help out a veteran. Gotta love how GNHR is always paying it forward and spreading the love!

My Very First Regular at CJ’s..

Tonight my first bar regular at CJ’s came in and told us that this would be his last visit for a very long time. He is moving to Florida. I knew this was coming but wasn’t sure when. He has been a long time regular at CJ’s and really welcomed me when I start bartending here. He is such an awesome and funny guy that really does care about us! He’s one of the regulars you just truly love. I bought him and his friend dinner which ended with hugs 🙂 We’ll miss Ron so much at CJ’s!!
