Parenting Hack: Board games, a toy kitchen & cocktails

Do you have kids? If the answer is yes, then you need to check out Happy Belly.  You can have great food, COCKTAILS [or wine] and your kids don’t have to sit still. I repeat, siting still is not required.

Just think: You don’t have to juggle your desire to have an adult conversation with your role as restaurant-crayon conflict negotiator (we all have been there, when every child needs to use the blue crayon at that moment or they may die).

PLUS your kids will actually have fun too!

 

Happy Belly is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner at 3 Duncan Street in Gloucester http://www.HappyBellyGloucester.com 978.317.7571
