So, when I go back home for holidays, I love to see my friends and I want to hang out with them...but I always have a toddler with me. I ask if they'd want to come over to my hotel room for dinner or get lunch at McDonalds (sorry, again, toddler) and it's countered with "Well, how about X bar at 10 at night?" It bums me out because I can't really go out at night or take my kid to bars.

Any suggestions? I'm one of the very few in my circle at home who has a kid and I want to hang out but am not sure what else I can suggest. Are parks in the daytime a thing that people would be willing to do or would I be lame for suggesting that as an option too?
