Looking for date-night babysitter – easy gig

My wife and I are looking for a sitter for date nights, usually Fri, Sat or Sunday nights. The sitter would come over after our 3-year-old is already in bed (around 8:00/8:30) and stay for two or three hours. Our son sleeps pretty well, so there would almost never be any actual child care involved. We just need someone to be there while we’re gone.

My wife and I are looking for a sitter for date nights, usually Fri, Sat or Sunday nights. The sitter would come over after our 3-year-old is already in bed (around 8:00/8:30) and stay for two or three hours. Our son sleeps pretty well, so there would almost never be any actual child care involved. We just need someone to be there while we’re gone.

The ideal sitter would be a high school or college student with childcare experience who lives nearby. We do have a cat who is very shy, but if you have bad allergies you might not want the job.

We have been using SitterCity/Chime, but we’re getting tired of paying premium rates for someone to sit on our couch, watch our TV, and use our Wifi.

Please send an e-mail through my profile if you are interested.

In a short note to subscribers of its email newsletter, Half Acre announced that it has received building permits to move forward with what's been dubbed the "Brewing & Food Palace" at 2050 W. Balmoral Ave.

    Half Acre 'Stoked' That Bowmanville Taproom & Beer Garden To Become Reality
    BOWMANVILLE - It's been nearly three years since Half Acre founder Gabriel Magliaro announced plans to build a brewery, taproom, restaurant and outdoor beer garden in Bowmanville. The brewery has been operational since 2015, but the rest of Half Acre's ambitious expansion has lagged behind - until now.

    Where to Watch the Blackhawks' Playoff Games in Chicago
    If attending a game is out of the picture, consider watching the game somewhere where you can still be surrounded by fellow fans. Whether the game is home or away, you can still catch the excitement at one, or a few, of the many official Blackhawks bars across Chicago.

    Chicago has a lot more problems to worry about, things like murder and violent robberies, than some people celebrating a championship!
