If you are craving a night out sans the kids, Main Street in Kings Park may be your destination.
A few local businesses have devised a plan that may make date night a regular and affordable event in your house and the babysitting deal can't be beat.
Friday night parents can drop their kids off for a 90 minute dance party for just $2 at Kings Park Dance and then head out to a local restaurant to enjoy a discounted meal (see below). For students of the center, the dance party is free.
Dance center owners Sandra and Nick Moletto thought up the idea as a way to get parents out onto Main Street and try out the expanding restaurant scene in Kings Park and have a little time out without the kids.
"We wanted to give back to the community. The parents can drop their kids off, we will have a deejay system and club lights on in the studio," said Sandra. "It's a way for parents to get out and support our businesses in town."
Mike Franchi, owner of several restaurants said he thought it would be a good idea to come on with the event.
"It's an idea to try to drive some business and we tweeked it with the coupons."
The group plans on offering it each month, with different deals and perhaps additional restaurants.
Offer is good Friday night only, participants will receive discount coupon when kids are dropped off.
Here is a list of participating restaurants:
Bella Cuccina- $19.95 for two chicken entrees, salad and bread.
Sombrerro's Southwest Grill- 10 percent off the check.
Dixie's Smokehouse- 10 percent off the check.
