Last summer, while grocery shopping at Hannaford, Kaitlyn, Kevin, and Grammy were randomly selected by Hood as winners of a weekend in New Hampshire. They met one of the Red Sox players and were even on the news that night! The prize included two nights at a hotel, several meals out, and various other gift certificates.
The hotel was the Red Jacket Inn. It was pretty cool because besides traditional hotel rooms, they had townhomes, and even full size homes to stay in. We were in one of the townhomes. Kaitlyn loved having all the room to run around. They also had a playground on site and free activities throughout the weekend. The first night we were there they were offering horse and carriage rides.
Then we used one of our meal certificates at the Black Cap Grill, the sister restaurant of the White Cap Grill in Portland. Kevin got the build-your-own burger and sweet potato fries. I had the salmon with mango salsa.
We used another gift certificate at the 1785 Inn for dinner that evening. The food was amazing. I got my escargot and tried elk sausage for the first time. Kaitlyn discovered a love of lobster and scallops.
We will be heading back later this summer. We have one more gift certificate to use on a dinner train, but that only runs during summer months.
