-- Without a doubt, the one thing parents could always use is a kid-free night. Taking in the latest action flick, a fancy dinner, or just a few hours of peace and quiet at home can help overworked parents recover a little of their sanity. And, that's just what they got when they dropped their kids off at West of the Moon's monthly "Parent's Night Out."
Each month, school owner Nick Zorn plans an action-packed night of fun for his students and their friends. This month, students sang karaoke to their favorite songs and showed off their moves in a game of freeze dance.
After about an hour and a half of games, pizza was delivered to the school and the students ate while watching cartoons. As their food "comas" began to set in, the kids brought out their pillows and blankets to the padded workout floor and watched a movie.
"As an added bonus for the parents, they get to return from a relaxing evening to pickup their kids in a drowsy, easy-to-deal-
with state," says Zorn.
