Birthday party question/poll (not SF related)
My DD is having her 7th birthday party at the place where she takes acting classes. She loves it and they offer bday parties that sound pretty cool and right up her alley.
My time slot choices are 10:30-12:30 on Saturday OR 5:30-7:30 pm on Saturday.
The kids will do 1 hour of acting/improv stuff and then there is an hour for pizza, cake, etc. (We will take the presents home to be opened.)
So--my question--as a PARENT, which time slot would you prefer? I don't want to screw up people's Sat. night plans but, at the same time, I am wondering if people might not LIKE a couple hours of free babysitting on a Saturday.
The location of the party place is near a mall, and there are also a bunch of restaurants around. I know my DH and I would love a party where we could drop DD off and go have a couple hrs to have dinner alone.
Or is the middle of the day a better bet?
DD has a very small, close-knit class (only 14 students) and the parents are all uber cool. Honestly--everyone gets along so well, I can see all the parents going to the SAME restaurant together, hanging out and socializing until the party is over.
