Olive Garden and My Gym plan: 'Parents' Night Out'
Head to your local Olive Garden on Feb. 7 and the Italian dining chain will pick up the baby-sitting tab as part of their "Parents Night Out" campaign.
Olive Garden and My Gym, a children's fitness franchise, teamed up to give parents a break while their kids enjoy an evening of free games and activities.
Here's how it works: At 6 p.m., drop off your registered child/children at a participating My Gym. Visit Olive Garden for the $25 three-course Italian dinner for two deal. At the end of your evening, bring your Olive Garden receipt to My Gym for check-out while you pick up your kids.
Contact the nearest My Gym location to confirm participation and register for Olive Garden's "Parents' Night Out." Space is limited to about 30 children per location, and reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. A deposit is required.
“With busy family schedules and everyone always on the go, it’s challenging for parents to find time for a date night out,” said Jay Spenchian, executive vice president of marketing for Olive Garden. “We’re excited to partner with My Gym to offer this exclusive Parents’ Night Out event, making it easier for couples to enjoy time together over a great meal at Olive Garden, while their kids are having a blast at My Gym.”
Here are the Long Island Olive Garden and My Gym locations participating:
My Gym (128 West Jericho Tpke., Huntington Station)
My Gym (955 West Montauk Hwy., West Babylon)
The closest Olive Garden restaurant is located at 5598 Sunrise Hwy. in Massapequa.
