    Looking for a Night Out? It's Restaurant Week in Columbus Jan. 20 - 25th!!

Or if you just need a NIGHT OUT, our sitter service is available on Thursday and Friday evening from 6p - 9p at the new JEC Clubhouse. EXPLORERS who are with us at normal After School Care will be bused over to the clubhouse.   WHAT IS RESTAURANT WEEK? Restaurant week is an event where restaurants offer reduced or fixed price menus, so customers can try many different types of food that may normally be out of their price range. Typically, it is mid- and upper-range establishments that join restaurant week, but any restaurant can take part in the event. Restaurant week appeals to locals and tourists alike, and most operations that participate see increased traffic during the occasion.
