Disclaimer: This is a date night collaboration between McKinney Moms Blog/Modern Mom Life and Topgolf Allen. I was compensated for this post, but all opinions are my own.
Last week, Topgolf Allen hosted McKinney Moms Blog/Modern Mom Life and our readers to spend time together at Couples Night sans kids! It was time to find a babysitter and better yet, have a conversation and dinner without interruption! Topgolf Allen rolled out the red carpet for a variety of couples, many who deserved a little relaxation and pampering after a long day!
I will admit, it’s been a LONG TIME since my husband and I went on a date.
My husband and I had plenty of date nights before our daughter (who is now two-years-old) was born. We had all the time and freedom in the world to try new restaurants, visit new museums and play golf with friends at Topgolf Allen.
Then date nights came to a screeching halt from the moment my daughter was born. All we really wanted to do if we had any free time was sleep or catch up on chores. Great for our household, but bad for our relationship.
I remember during the first few months of my child’s life, I cried to my husband saying, “I don’t remember the last time we have had a meaningful and uninterrupted conversation!”
Needless to say, as time when on and Reese got older we were able to make a choice to:
A) Find a great babysitter.
B) Make the time and mark the calendar at least once a month for a Date Night.
C) Don’t feel guilty for choosing to spend time away from our kids to spend time with each other.
It is so important to make time for date night with your loved one after kids. Now that we have established that, the fun part is planning a date night!
Why you should consider Topgolf Allen for your next date night
It’s a Place to Run into other Couples
Remember how you used to have full conversations with other grown adults prior to having children?
The scenery is stunning and makes you feel like you are on a vacation
Even if it’s only for a few hours…
If you haven’t visited the perks and fun of Topgolf Allen, you truly are missing out. For Couples’ Night, Topgolf Allen had a live DJ, life-size games, and a food spread that I am still drooling over… I am still dreaming about the mashed potatoes and wishing that I didn’t have to cook tonight.
Our group took over part of the 3rd floor which is where you can find the stylish and modern environment that in some ways reminded me of California. Did I mention we truly lucked out as the weather was perfect?
You don’t have to cook or clean and the food spread is unlike no other!
No need to be a golf pro to enjoy the game of Topgolf
As the sun set, we got to enjoy the beautiful golf complex. No need to bring clubs as each station is equipped with mens and women’s right-handed clubs. And yes, clubs are available for lefties as well!
There is always something unique and different happening at Topgolf Allen
Even if you have been to Topgolf a million times before, I promise you there will be a special event or program going on that you have not experienced. For example, coming up they are hosting a Zombie Ball and Halloween Party later this month. The event staff at Topgolf are very creative so the chances of you getting bored are slim to none. They have thought of every occasion to celebrate. Did you see the giant Connect Four game above? Check out Topgolf Allen’s upcoming events if you don’t believe me.
