Wouldn't date night sound a whole lot better if it didn't mean paying a babysitter the cost of dinner and a movie? That's the idea behind Parents Night Out, hosted by Pilgrim Lutheran Church and School, 4300 N. Winchester Ave., from 5-8 p.m. Nov. 16.

While Mom and Dad enjoy a few hours of adult conversation, the youngsters will be entertained at Pilgrim with games, movies, crafts, cookie decorating and pizza. Toilet-trained children ages 3-10 are welcome.

The service is open to all members of the community, not just Pilgrim members. The cost is free, though a $2 donation per family would help pay for supplies.

Space is limited, so reserve your spot ASAP by contacting Kristi Killelea at kkillelea@gmail.com or  773-343-6073. Be sure to provide your children's names and ages.
