The Playful Parent



Close your eyes and imagine this… A limousine arrives to sweep you and your special someone off on a romantic date! Sit back and relax as you are whisked away by Diamond Limousines for a luxurious ride to Galazio Greek Restaurant.  There you and your significant other get to enjoy a romantic candle lit dinner for two. After a night of romance you get to hop back in your chauffeured ride and enjoy a rich and decadent treat from Sweet Thing Black Orchid.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking…This is just a fantasy; it’s too late to book a limo or reservation at a fancy restaurant this close to Valentine’s Day. Finding a babysitter alone will be a huge challenge! Don’t worry the Dream Date team has put together the perfect package for you. One lucky family will win the ultimate dream date on Friday February 17, 2017 to include: a three hour limousine service provided by Diamond Limousine, $75 credit (plus gratuity) to Galazio Restaurant, pack of four delicious cupcakes from Sweet Thing Black Orchid and reserved spots for your little ones to play at Pump It Up while you are on your dream date.  The Playful Parent and Southern Maryland Restaurants are excited to put this package together and will provide the winning family with photos of their special night, not for marketing purposes, but to memorialize this grand event!
