Last month I told you how Alexandria Restaurant Group (ARP), the parent company of Orlando’s Cafe Tu Tu Tango and Mia’s Italian Kitchen, was hosting twice-weekly free meal giveaways to hospitality workers that have been hit hard by the recent quarantine.

I was recently invited by Bloggin Mamas and Nissan to an event to learn more about car seat safety at Cafe Tu Tu Tango, and it was a very fun and informational day.
Full disclosure: I’m not a mom. But I am an aunt, and I want my family’s kids to be safe when they ride in cars. As should all of you.
