4. Make it a whole day!

Just because Crayola Experience closes, doesn’t mean the day has to end! If you want to extend the party by going to dinner with family & friends, we might know a place or three!  The Shops at Willow Bend have quite a few restaurants that offer kid-friendly foods as well as great adult options. If you’re a burger person, check out Knife Burger.  Owned by Tesar, John, this burger restaurant is no new kid on the block when it comes to burgers. Another close and yummy option is Whistle Britches Chicken where families can enjoy a plethora of Southern dishes. If you want something a bit fancier but without the dress code, try Terra Mediterranean, also located in The Shops at Willow Bend. Terra Mediterranean has a casual, yet elegant dining atmosphere. Food ranges from authentic dishes featuring staples of the Mediterranean diet and includes gluten free options as well.  All three restaurants are located in or around The Shops at Willow Bend for birthday planning that is cake!
