Skip the Sitter and Head to Mercado San Agustin for a Kid's Valentine's Dance Party

Valentine's Day is expensive enough as it is with dinner and drinks and flowers and presents and whatever else people are expected to splurge on to prove they love each other. That's why parents out there should take advantage of Mercado San Agustin's offer to watch your kids while you get dinner on site on Friday, Feb. 13.

True, it is a day before the real deal, but since it's only $5 to let your elementary-aged kid loose at the Kid's Valentine's Dance Party, it might be worth it to save a chunk of cash on that babysitter and celebrate your love a night early. I mean, really, what's the difference?

The event promises three hours of kiddy pop jams played by DJs from 6 until 9 p.m. with snacks and supervision for the little ones. That means parents are then free to grab dinner at Seis, Agustin Kitchen or Blu while the kids dance and romp around under the disco ball. Parents do have to stay on site during the event, but can peruse the Mercado at their leisure almost entirely kid-free for a couple hours.
