As the parents of a busy pre-schooler and a new baby we know how hard it can be to find time for a ‘date night’. A recent article has highlighted the advantages of ‘day-dates’. It’s a great option for tired parents (or anyone who isn’t a night owl!). You get to connect with your significant other before you’re both ready to crash for the night, plus if the kids are in school you don’t have to worry about a babysitter and food and entertainment options often cost less during the day! Looking for some fun options in the area? Grab lunch on one of the great patios downtown Mankato or Lower North Mankato and then try one of the great beers at the Mankato Brewery! The new sculptures for the City Center Walking Sculpture Tour will be installed next month, check those out and finish with matinee at one of the theaters! So many great options, what would you do for your ‘day date’?
