Olive Garden pays for babysitting for parents to eat out

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The restaurant chain Olive Garden is launching a gimmick to get parents to have a "date night" at their local restaurant.

They are holding a Parents' Night Out event on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.  The chain is partnering with My Gym locations around the country.

The parents can drop the kids off at the gym and then eat a special 2 for $25 dinner combo.

Parents have to confirm space at a My Gym location. They say space is limited to approximately 30 kids per participating location.

"My Gym and Olive Garden have similar goals in mind, to provide families with a fun, affordable and positive experience that both parents and children can enjoy," said Monique Vranesh, executive vice president of My Gym Enterprises. "During Parents' Night Out, we'll do just that by making a night out carefree and easy for adults."
