For parents planning a night out without the kids, Olive Garden has a deal to entice customers.

The restaurant chain is trying to drive up sales by offering to pick up the babysitting tab for a one-night only special. The date night offer is only good Feb. 7.

Olive Garden teamed up with a network of children's fitness centers around the country called My Gym.

First, parents must call My Gym and reserve a spot for their children. Making a reservation also requires a deposit.

When parents return to pick up their kids, they get their deposit back if they have an Olive Garden receipt.

There are My Gym locations in Katy and The Woodlands.

Olive Garden is promoting the deal on social media, asking parents to share their experiences using #OGParentsNightOut.
