Please excuse me while I state the obvious here, but if you're a parent you need a night off from time to time. You need to get out and have fun with your spouse, your friends, whoever. You need to have some time away from your kids to just...be you.

That being said, finding a babysitter to watch the kids while you get this ever important "you" time is not always easy. That's just one of the reasons events like this from the Stateline Family YMCA in Beloit is so fabulous, and the best part is, you don't have to be a YMCA member to attend!

Here's what's happening; on February 1, Stateline Family YMCA is hosting a Harry Potter themed Parent's Night Out event that will feature games, swimming, themed activities, pizza and more. This event is open to both YMCA members and non-members, and is for kids ages 3 to 12 years old. It runs 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. and costs $20 per kid for members, $30 per kid for non-members.

Obviously, spots for this event will fill up quick, so reserve yours online now, here. 

The only question left now is; what are the hot spots in Beloit that parents need to check out on our big night out?
