|New Kids Night Out Mystery Dinner planned at Roeland Park Community Center on Dec. 6|
Parents are invited to drop their kids off for a night of fun during a new special event being planned by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District. The idea is that with the kids occupied and stores open late, parents can finish making purchases for their family's holiday wish list.
This new special event is called Kids Night Out - Mystery Dinner and is for ages eight to 12. Kids will enjoy trying to decode our "mystery" dinner menu, playing games, and creating their own take-home craft.
"The “mystery” part is all about what they are going to eat," said Roeland Park 50 Plus Coordinator Libby Scarborough, who is planning this event. "Participants will be given a menu where all the different food items are labeled with funny names. Then they will be asked to order their meal by the course (appetizer, entrée + sides and dessert). Depending on how they guess, their appetizer may turn out to be lettuce and applesauce or just dessert. The main dish could be ranch dressing, a brownie, and spaghetti noodles and their dessert could be marinara sauce and green beans. But any way they choose, they will all get a complete edible meal by the end of the dinner service. "
