These events are free and open to moms of all ages.
"We believe that moms deserve 'A Nite Off,' so our malls are hosting a free event where they can enjoy their favorite retail destination in a new way," said Mikael Thygesen, Chief Marketing Officer at Simon Property Group, who added that last year's event drew thousands of Moms and received strong praise from participants.

Originally organized by Maria Bailey, CEO of BSM Media, author and Mom Talk Radio host, National Mom's Nite Out unites social media groups, companies, local playgroups, mom bloggers and networks in giving moms a well-deserved night off. Bailey brought the first National Mom's Nite Out to life after watching moms take care of everyone else on Mother's Day but never themselves.
