A mix to keep (or share) in a jar.
Hmm. Y’know, the now-closed Jackson’s Restaurant in Methuen, Massachusetts was operated by the DuBois family; Susan (Paradis) DuBois went to high school about 50 miles Northeast of Westborough, in Lowell, Massachusetts.
The restaurant started off in the 1940s as the Skyport Diner, when the views along its Merrimack river location were primarily desirable because they offered a great view of the seaplanes taking off and landing at the Merrimack Valley Seaplane Base. The Dubois family purchased the location early in the 1980s and turned it into a large restaurant that served American classics and held events like wedding receptions and anniversary parties.
Sue passed in 2013; the restaurant closed that same year. At the time, hot chocolate cost $1.75 on the breakfast menu.
