Olive Garden to Offer Free Babysitting Feb. 20

Four Course Festa Italiana

Olive Garden is breaking down the barriers to date night for parents through a North American partnership with My Gym. The Italian restaurant is providing kids with a FREE fun-filled evening at My Gym while their parents enjoy a four-course Italian meal as part of its second annual Parents’ Night Out on Friday, Feb. 20.

Couples can participate in Parents’ Night Out by contacting their nearest My Gym location to confirm participation, obtain event details and register. (http://www.mygym.com/locations) Space is limited to approximately 30 kids at each of the 148 participating My Gym locations in the U.S. and Canada, and reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

A recent survey found that the overall cost, including childcare and dining, combined with lack of trustworthy child supervision are the largest barriers to date night for nearly 75 percent of parents, according to Olive Garden. Parents’ Night Out is designed to solve this dilemma. Parents can enjoy quality time over a meal at Olive Garden while their kids are entertained with games and activities at a My Gym.

“We understand how important quality time is for busy parents, so we are thrilled to help them enjoy a worry-free evening together,” said Jose Duenas, executive vice president of marketing for Olive Garden said in a press release. “Through our partnership with My Gym, we are able to provide the entire family with an evening out.”

To  keep things affordable, Olive Garden is offering its first-ever Four Course Festa Italiana starting at $12.99, featuring unlimited breadsticks and choice of homemade soup or famous house salad, and choice of small plate, entrée and decadent Dolcini mini dessert.
