As much as Jason and I love having a date night, it is also extremely important to me that we all do things as a family. HowAboutWe, my go to for all my dates, recently added a Family Friendly Collection. I was instantly drawn to it and loved every “family friendly” place they recommended. Some of the fun dates included Cheese Melts and Custard at 5oz Factory, Holiday City Lights Cruise, and DIY Dinner at Walk-In Cookbook.
NYC always has so much to offer kids; but sometimes I draw a blank on where to take the kids and wind up doing the same things with them. It’s nice to have HowAboutWe as a resource. For their Family Friendly Collection, they spoke to dozens of moms and crafted this collection with their specific recommendations and needs, such as dates that ended early, didn’t include alcohol, weren’t too physically strenuous, and offered true “one-on-one time.”Since we decided to have a date night once a month, the HowAboutWe for Couples, Family Collection has now inspired me to do the same with the kids.
For our Family Date Night, we chose to go to 5oz Factory. Located in the heart of the West Village, I was so shocked we have never tried out this totally family friendly space. My family and I were able to enjoy Wisconsin cheese melts, soda (root beer) floats top with frozen custard in this causal setting. It was such a treat for them as was for Jason and me. The owner of the shop was present and couldn’t have been nicer to our family!
Before kids Jason and I were out almost every single night. Even if it were for a quick bite. Obvsiously three kids later can definitely change things up a bit. I am so grateful for our monthly HowAboutWe dates that reminds us to slow down and make time for ourselves. And now with their new Family Collection, being a member is a reminder to escape from the daily hustle and bustle and make time for you and family. And who wouldn’t want a night off from cooking! HowAboutWe wants to make sure busy parents take time for themselves — with or without kids.
