Babies in Bars
I love when businesses get creative and to cater to moms. Like Six Plates bar in Durham.
As a bar, you have to imagine that people aren't rubbing the hinges off their doors at 4pm. So when one of our mommies found out that that Six Plates Wine Bar offers a "Mommy's Vino" event we were there in a NY minute.
In their words:
"Beginning September 10th, every Thursday from 4-6pm we will child proof our bar to allow the moms who desire an opportunity to have a nice glass of wine an opportunity to do that without worrying about their child bothering the other customers. We will rope off our back room to our regular customers and leave the front room available to all the moms in the triangle to get together, have a glass of wine and a light bite. Moms, please bring everything you need to keep your kids happy as far as toys, drinks, and food. We will provide you with the wine and food. There will also be a 10% discount on food and non-alcoholic drinks for any designated drivers."
(which please note that you should not need a designated driver while hanging out with your baby, ew!)
Anyhow, public service announcement aside, we gave this a go. Fantastic idea. But bear in mind that they use the term "child proof" lightly. They don't really do anything to make the place kid-friendly. It just is a time of day for you to bring your baby in and not worry about bothering other people because, HEY, this is a MOMMY'S EVENT. Sadly, this is not well advertised so we were the only people there. I had to do an Internet search just to find the text above it is so hard to find on their website.
BUT, advertise it they do.
And it is really good food and wine.
So I say Go For It!
