Bear asks the Widow Daventry for the special room he gets whenever he's in town. We get it: We like a room with a nice view and a free snack bar, too.
Turns out that's not what's special about this room, though. When Bear and the Widow Daventry take Crispin upstairs, Bear shows him a secret hiding place concealed in the wall. Now why would Bear need that?
Telling Crispin to stay in the room, Bear and the Widow Daventry give Crispin probably the best meal of his life, broth with meat and bread in it.
However Bear clearly doesn't think through the fact that he just brought a kid with a penny in his pocket to the first city he's ever seen and told him to stay in the room.
Figuring what happens in Great Wexly stays in Great Wexly, Crispin decides to go out on the town.
