We signed up for Broadway Pizza’s Birthday club about three years ago.  This has to be one of the best birthday clubs around.  Each year my kids get a coupon at the beginning of their birthday month that includes a personal sized pizza, a drink, a sundae and a “special surprise”.  The special surprise has varied year to year.  This year’s gift included a Frisbee, a beach ball and a pair of sunglasses.

If we are particularly busy or broke, we can do a one-on-one outing with a  parent and the birthday child.  However, we don’t eat out often, so it is kind of a treat to make it a family birthday outing when we can.  When that happens, we make sure to go to the Original Broadway Station, where we can see the little red caboose and watch the train go around the bar.

One of my main criteria for family outings is that I want to do grown up things and still get to hang out with my kids.  I love restaurants that are family-friendly, but not kid-oriented.  The train theme and the model-train in particular make this restaurant a great place to take the kids; but it is still a real grown up restaurant with beer and everything.  Sometimes — if we can ignore the little people throwing food at us and crawling under the table — we can pretend we are on a real date.  Actually, our kids are better behaved than some of our pre-kid friends.  None of my kids have ever hit on the waitress or got embarrassingly drunk at dinner; and they are a whole heck of a lot cuter when they do misbehave.

Although it now has locations as far away as Rochester and Eau Claire, Broadway Pizza has an interesting history that is rooted in Northeast Minneapolis.  If you want to sign your child up for the birthday club you can download the registration form hereI know this sounds a little like a commercial for Broadway Pizza.  Really, we just love good neighborhood pizza and Broadway is our favorite.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
