No doubt grownups need to spend time in a kid-free zone every once in a while, and date nights were invented for just that reason. But sometimes it’s fun to skip the sitter and have the littles crash the party. Click through for family date night ideas that are fun for the whole gang, from crashing at a museum for the night to catching dinner and a show. Adult conversation is a snooze fest anyway, right?

Dinner & A Movie: Studio Movie Grill

Movie night at this Wheaton gem marks the end of corralling your kiddos to your seat while juggling drinks, popcorn and candy. The waitstaff takes food and drink orders, and each seat has an individual table. Just sit back, relax and let the food come to you.
