5 Things To Do in Santa Monica While Your Kids Are Having Fun at Parent’s Night Out



A few times a month on Friday nights, we open our doors at our summer camp spot in Santa Monica for an evening of cooking lessons for your kids, Lego robotics activities, foozball, dance games, science activities and more!

But here are 5 things you, the parent, can do as your kids are having fun at PNO:




5)  Go out for dinner on the Santa Monica Promenade.  There are plenty of great restaurants serving everything from Italian pizza at Trastevere to sushi at Monsoon  If you’re craving seafood, check out my favorite spot in the city: Blue PlateOysterette.

4)  Check out a film.   For the latest movies, The Promenade is your go to spot to see artsy fare like Wes Anderson’s gorgeous “The Grand Budapest Hotel”  or, if the kids inside you needs to come out, the super awesome “Lego Movie.”  You can also check out a classic film at the Aero Theater.

3)  Grab your girlfriends and have a Girl’s Night Out.  In need of a fun night out with cocktails?    Hit up a cool rooftop lounge such as the Hotel Shangri-La or the Vice Roy Hotel.

2)  Stay in  Enjoy the peace and silence of your house with some take-out Chinese food, a bottle of wine and catch up on your favorite shows from House of Cards to Modern Family.

1)  Treat yourself!  Your kids are having a good time, so why not enjoy yourself as well?  Enjoy a glass of fine wine at Bodega Wine Bar,  a massage at The Massage Place  or grab an ice cream and play games at the Santa Monicapier.

There’s plenty to do!

And what will your kids be up to?
