We're willing to bet you know a mom who could use a fun night out (and maybe that mom is you!). For many moms those moments come few and far between, so when the opportunity comes along why not make the most of it? That's exactly what MommyBites Boston was thinking when they hosted their Ultimate Mom's Night Out this past Thursday night 3/20. Nearly 200 moms and moms-to-be gathered at Arts at the Armory in Somerville to learn, laugh, mingle, and relax a little. Of course, no mom's night out would be comeplete without wine, so we happily brought some vino to the party.
The moms sipped on Prosecco, Sauvignon Blanc, and Malbec as they perused through table after table of kid-friendly products, time saving services, and plentiful snacks. One of the evening's food highlights was a selection of healthy snacks provided by Sproot, a Boston-based company which delivers nutritious lunches to local schools.

When you participate in so many events you're bound to run into a few familiar faces. We were delighted to see our friends at Pretzel Crisps had a booth featuring fondue made from Taza Chocolate. What a fun idea for an after school snack!

One of the best ways to relax is through laughter, and one of the evening's special treats was a stand up comedy show by local funny women (and fellow moms) Robin Maxfield and Erika Welch. Jokes about how kids without filters and the everyday drama inherent in having a teenage daughter (plus a little wine) left everyone with a smile on their faces for the remainder of the evening.

All in all we were so happy to contribute to a fun night out for this rockin' group of moms. And even though this Ultimate Mom's Night Out has come and gone, we hope our wine can be a part of many more fun girls nights down the road!
