Mom's night out for the social caterpillar

I want to be more social. Can you help me come up with ideas for hosting a mom's-night-out party at my home that isn't a jewelry, tupperware, pocketbook, home product party, etc. party?

I want to get to know the mothers of my kids' friends a little better. I've been to quite a few of some of their home product parties and I admit I like the vibe of a quick casual get together that only lasts a couple of hours, perhaps falls some evening during the week instead of the weekend, and is a reason to have munchies and a drink or two. I don't want to sell anything, but I appreciate the ease of how those sort of "parties" get a group of women together. There seems to be a focus at a jewelry party that makes socializing easier.
I'm not really very confident about hosting something like Bunko or poker night, or a book club yet, but I won't rule it out yet if you can offer me your best tried and true tips. Also, I could entertain some kind of small benefit for a charity if you have any great ideas for that as well. Thanks for your help.
