Maybe it's because I don't have children, or like children, but this seems kinda novel for our neighborhood. Commonwealth is actively courting the "family" business with free food for kids and a new kids menu:
Family Nights at CommonWealth Gastropub: Tuesdays and Saturdays! Starting Tuesday January 12, 2010, 5pm -7pm kids 10 and under eat free*! *One kid's meal per adult meal. And introducing our new kid's menu: Chef's Choice Pasta, Burger w/ chips, Fish 'n chips, Hot Dog w/ chips, Hummus and Veggies.Not gonna lie, I won't be going to the restaurant during "family time." However... I don't go there now during those times because it's kinda early, so I guess what I'm saying is this doesn't change my behavior at all.
