CinebistroFOODFor most couples with small children, the traditional night out includes finding a babysitter, figuring out what fun they can squeeze out of a few hours, realizing they can’t run away from home in that time frame, and then just settling with going to the movies. After doing this a few times, movie night loses it’s thrill. For couples who can relate, then it is time to spice things up with a trip to CinéBistro.
