Parents’ Day or Night Out is offered at local Ys across King and south Snohomish counties. Whether you want to catch the newest movie in Bellevue, enjoy a romantic dinner in the University District, or catch up on chores at home, there’s a Y nearby. 

If you need a little bit of date night inspiration, we've got you covered:

Around the World in a Single Yelp

Pick a restaurant with high ratings that you've never been to before, grab your friends or partner, and enjoy something new! 

Laundry & Slow Jams

Who said laundry has to be a slog? Put on your favorite jams, light some candles, put your favorite drink in your cup, and get to folding. All while knowing that your kids are having fun while you make a night of catching up at home.

First Date Again

Take your partner for an evening celebrating your first date by doing it all over again! Watch the same movie, or eat the same meal and remember the day that started it all. 

Get Creative!

Sign up for a drop-in art class! Whether it's ceramics or a fun sip and paint night, you can spend your free evening letting your creative juices flow.

Relax and Recharge

The sweetest treat is a quiet house, a remote in hand, and dinner ordered in. There's no shame in a quiet night at home to recharge and catch up on your favorite shows. No arguing over the remote, no checking ratings, just you and your TV full speed ahead.

Parents' Day or Night Out is a night of fun activities for kids; what you do with your new free time is only limited by your imagination!
