Want a night out with the squeeze? Tired of baton-passing the kids while you share sail time? Looking for help corralling the urchins while the big folks dance the macarena at your best friend’s wedding? Get your nanny on — by hooking up with Bambinos. Seriously, proprietor Lorena Lowell tells us that the nanny service for the child care and learning center has been  a huge growth area. She’s got 65 trained nannies available to oversee on-site kid care, or work off-site — at parties, hotels, corporate events. She’s had a couple of calls from guys staying at local hotels who wanted a nanny for the entire weekend, but when the nanny arrive, there were no kids. To put the kibosh on that sort of nonsense, Bambinos now lets hotel management know that a nanny will be meeting the client family in the lobby before beginning child care. Cost is $13 an hour. Weekends are busy, so call a week ahead, at least. Out-of-towners are calling a month early.
