Prior to the pandemic, Palisadian Marissa Hermer, co-owner of The Draycott, introduced a child/parent-friendly event, Ballons & Bubbles, at the restaurant on Tuesdays from 5 to 6 p.m.
Children were treated to a “Balloon” artist and allowed to play on the lawn by restaurant in the Palisades Village, while parents enjoyed a happy-hour drink – “Bubbles.”
Then the pandemic hit, and everything shut down.
Hermer wrote in an email to CTN on June 9, “I’m so excited to share with you that we are bringing BACK Balloons & Bubbles after a two-year hiatus.” The last time that event was held was on March 3, 2020.
“It is a thrill that we can welcome our young families back to our terrace,” Hermer said. “I’m so looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new families over a glass of bubbles – while our Balloon Artist twists animal shapes and crowns for the kidlets.”
Adults can enjoy a happy-hour drink–Bubbles (wines) by the glass or cocktails such as the watermelon margarita, crafted by The Draycott’s beverage director Melina Meza.
Marissa and husband Matt have three children, so they understand the key to a happy hour/early dinner is “super-fast” service. It also means that the restaurant is is child friendly.
“I can assure you that the waiters are well versed with kids,” Hermer said. “Mine dine there a few times a week and there are spills – but cie la vie.”
