Growing up, I remember my parents going out with friends almost every Saturday night. We lived in Denver, surrounded by both sides of the family, so they could always count on someone being available to babysit my sister and I. We still reminisce about Saturday nights staying up a little later than usual watching Love Boat with our Grandma Honey.
Fast forward to our life in New York City. We have no family nearby and we’re so caught up in our busy lives that scheduling time to just go out with friends happens once in a blue moon.
That’s kinda sad given that we: a) live in one of the greatest cities on Earth (more than a few would say we live at the center of the world), and b) have plenty of friends with whom we would love to spend an evening.
With the desire to get out in our great city and a long list of friends that would join us, I was thrilled when Sittercity reached out to let me know they could erase any more excuses with their their new Date Night Now service.
As the title suggests, they have verified a roster of babysitters across New York City to be available on demand for date nights– Thursday through Sunday evenings. They take all the work out of the process by meeting all of the Date Night sitters in person, conducting enhanced background checks, and verifying prior sitting experience. All payments are handled online too, so no late night trips to the ATM to pay the babysitter at the end of the night!
Sounds good, right? Well, you get to try Date Night Now right along with us.
We thought this was a perfect opportunity to get some guys from NYC Dads Group together with our wives, so we asked some friends to join us too. We are all using the Sittercity Date Night Now service, and you get to watch our big evening unfold on May 8 Twitter and Instagram at the #datenightnow and #citydads hashtags!
Here’s who is joining my wife Priyanka and I:
- Jason Greene of One Good Dad, and his wife Cara
- Lorne Jaffe of Raising Sienna, and his wife Elaine.
- Christopher Persley of The Brown Gothamite, and his wife Jenelle.
From the moment the babysitter arrives, to our arrival back home, we hope you’ll be inspired to get a babysitter, find some friends, and get out!
