christadiserio: Do you have a competitive side? If yes, then Topgolf might be the place for a night out! Let me start by saying that you don't have to be an experienced golfer to enjoy this outing. This "driving range-style" golf game venue uses micro-chipped golf balls, which you hit to aim at target objects on the field. It's fun and only as competitive as you make it! The best part is, you can order some delicious food and drinks, and enjoy them while playing.
Whirly Ball Mid-Cities
Vanessa M.: Feeling competitive? Whirly Ball Mid-Cities offers a fun and unique experience: imagine playing a game that is a blend of lacrosse and basketball played entirely in bumper cars! If your group is still feeling amped up afterward, play a game or two of laser tag, or chill out in the arcade.
Texas Wine and Wood
Vanessa M.: Texas Wine and Wood offers DIY workshops or private parties in their creative studio. Each guest creates their own art on wood project; the attentive instructors will guide you in the art-making process and make sure you and your friends have a blast and that each guest comes home with their very own masterpiece.

Check out all the food stalls out here and line up your mom's night out with one of their special events or guest entertainers on their main stage. Rest assured - this won't be your average dinner!
