Had me a blast at the {510} moms’ night out!

Scholarshare and UrbanSitter threw a big party with us at the New Parkway Theatre on Sunday evening. Instead of sweating it out during the witching hour, dozens of us were toasting with chilled sangria and singing along to favorite old songs from the movie, Grease.

How cute is she with the homemade saddle shoes?

We called it {510} Families Mom’s Night Out: GREASE with Scholarshare or #510mno for short; I just hope everyone had as much fun as I did wearing my leather pants and crazy uncomfortable shoes!

Cheers with sangria and popcorn!


Urban Sitter is the best place to find, book, and pay a babysitter using the recommendations of people you know and trust. Since the party a few days ago, I used the website to post my opening for a last-minute sitter and got nine responses within the hour; screened new-to-me caregivers with questions I made up; browsed reviews before making my decision; booked online; and paid with my credit card when I only had $2 in my wallet. If you’re not a member, I say do it.

Special deal for first-timers on UrbanSitter: Go to urbansitter.com/promo/510families and enjoy a $50 UrbanSitter credit, good toward your 1st month of membership ($15 value) + $35 babysitting credit. New customers only. A summertime treat for you!

Finally, our host location, The New Parkway, is an amazing independent movie theater in Oakland with family-friendly movies, baby brigade shows, and lots more! I love the quirky decorative touches throughout the two screening rooms. We were in number two with more couches, more graffiti, and no balcony.

Both theaters offer a full menu of choices delivered right to your seat. We had dinner, chocolate banana bread pudding, popcorn, and wine (because hot Sunday night). With a full kitchen at the New Parkway’s cafe, every movie brings relief from the dinner grind. And sometimes, there’s singing in the aisles!
