At the historic Hawthorne Hotel we try to do as many things in a thoughtful was as possible. I was reminded of this aspect as I was doing tableside visits a few weeks ago and encountered this lovely young guest, who was allowed to pose for this post.
Instead of handing children a page to color along with some crayons, we have created a "Wikki Stix" package to give each child when them come in, whether to Nathaniel's or the Tavern.
The package includes our children's menu, the Wikki Stix and a sheet of ideas for inspiration that they can use along with the Wikki Stix to help them get started. We have found that parents and other adults with children in tow really appreciate this alternative activity to keep the children occupied. And as you can see the children really appreciate them as well.
I hope you enjoy seeing just one more aspect of what we do here at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA.
