Commonwealth Courts the Family Crowd

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.

As the father of a 16-month-old, this is great news. We went to Commonwealth at that time of day a lot when it was nice out to sit outside and have a beer.

Just because you have a kid doesn't mean you have to give up going out! :) Or at least that is an ideal mantra for me.

i like it b/c it means that they believe there are enough families to make it worth promoting which means that there are young families moving into the area which means that my home value will eventually go up!

sounds great to me. let the screaming kids in early when no one is there and let the rest of us eat in peace during dinner time.

Wow. "Let the screaming kids..." That's like saying, don't want to go there because of the drunken Twenty-somethings. Thanks for the gross generalization.

A real thank you goes to Commonwealth for recognizing the diversity of our neighborhood and city.

Eventually one gets tired of associating with homogenous white twentysomething yuppies who all look kinda the same and carry relatively few concerns of substance in life. I don't have kids either, but good on Commonwealth for trying to diversify a bit.
