WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Olive Garden is offering free babysitting for couples who want to go out for a date night and eat unlimited breadsticks on Feb. 20.

The restaurant is partnering with the children's fitness program My Gym to provide the free childcare. Parents only have to go to their local participating My Gym, register and drop off their children and go enjoy their dinner.

"We understand how important quality time is for busy parents, so we are thrilled to help them enjoy a worry-free evening together," said Jose Duenas, executive vice president of marketing for Olive Garden, in a statement.

A survey found the cost of trustworthy childcare and a dinner for date night causes 75 percent of parents to forgo such outings.
