Had a couple come in tonight and the man was wearing a Squam Boats and Livery jacket. I asked him if he knew the family who owned it as I grew up with the owner’s son. He explained he lives in Ashland and works at Squam Boats. Having grown up in Holderness we began talking about the area and who we both knew and what not. They told me they frequent T-Bones Laconia as it is so close, so I asked what they are doing this far South. They went on to explain that they are staying at Catholic Medical Center, as their son, Noah, was born 12 weeks early. They explained that he is doing well and hopefully be released in the very near future. I immediately gave her a hug and shook his hand, telling them congratulations on the addition to their family and that my thoughts and prayers were with them. When I went on to explain that T-Bones was going to pay for their dinner they were so thankful and appreciative of how we would do that for them during this hard time. I gave them a Pay It Forward and they once again thought it was amazing that we would then let them help someone else. As they left I said a last goodbye and told them they need to bring Noah in and show him off when he’s ready.
Had a couple come in today to have lunch. They were very outgoing and kept telling me how much they love the atmosphere, the service, and the amazing food quality. Visited with them for a little while when they told me it was their first visit to our family of restaurants. They explained they wanted to try a place they had never heard of instead of visiting a “chain”. I bought their appetizer and encouraged them to try our other two restaurants right here in the Manchester area. They were grateful and told me they would certainly be back to visit our restaurants.
