Our People + Culture team framed the day with a range of fun activities to teach these special guests about what their parents do at OpenTable. From a baby play room to a kids activity room that featured games and arts and crafts, we also provided restaurant and food-themed coloring pages, held a special cooking class around a waffle bar that allowed kids to make their own waffles since food is such a big part of our corporate culture.


Additional activities included an office tour and scavenger hunt, face painting, a family lunch, a special “Music with Ryan” session, in which Ryan Ward and his trusty guitar from People + Culture entertained kids (as he often does his fellow employees) with songs and a singalong.
