On Feb. 7, Olive Garden, the casual Italian dining chain, will be serving up free baby-sitting for any parents who dine at one of its participating locations across the country.
Olive Garden is teaming up with 145 My Gym locations for this strange, wonderful, and brilliant promotion they’re aptly calling Parent’s Night Out. They’re doing it specifically to promote their two-for-$25 dinner menu, but invite parents to order off the regular menu too.
Meanwhile, your little tykes won’t even miss you, since they’ll be having way too much fun playing games and doing other activities with trained and background-checked sitters in a licensed facility.
Olive Garden is using social media for the promotion, inviting parents to share their nights online using the hashtag #OGParentsNightOut.
