Family Entertainment

On one special evening this winter, kids take over Broadway! The Broadway League invites young people ages 18 and under to attend a participating Broadway show for free when accompanied by a full-paying adult. Read more…

SPYSCAPE

A New Museum and Expereince

Activities: It was raining heavily as my family and I arrived in the city. We were headed to SPYSCAPE, a new spy museum, and the turn-your-collar-up weather was helping us get in the mood. We checked the address twice because 928 8th Avenue looked like a sleek modern office building. Read more…
Holidays: I’ve always had a fascination with Grand Central Terminal. Its majestic cerulean ceiling in the Main Concourse featuring the zodiac signs, the information booth clock where tourists take selfies and, of course, the delicacies at Grand Central Market. Luckily, I’m not the only one in love with this beautiful landmark building that is the second most visited destination in New York City after Times Square. My 10-year-old son has also marveled at its grandeur and is a bit of a train buff, so we decided to trek into the city and learn more about its history. Read more…

Laurie Berkner

Laurie Berkner

Hot Topics: Here I am ... on the phone with Laurie Berkner (I’m not worthy!) trying to explain to her why her music is so significant to me and how it is my happiest happy place. Moms - you can relate, right? Her music carried me through some pretty rough spots as a newbie parent and helped me focus on the joy. That’s because her songs weave easily into our daily parenting routines and family life helping us connect, love a bit deeper, help our children fall asleep a bit faster and sometimes share a laugh at our own or our children’s silliness.

An Escape Room

An Escape Room

Activities: As my kids get older, it’s harder to find indoor entertainment for the colder months that doesn’t include movies or bowling alleys. We recently discovered two escape rooms -each within an hour’s drive - and they’re still raving about them. Read more…
Tweens: Two parts – an afternoon and evening OR consecutive evenings – for Potter fans it’s not an issue. For others, perhaps, a little bit of an endurance test. With that said, this is one of the most magical staging of any show ever to hit Broadway. Parents turn into children right before your eyes. Gravity is not an issue. No strings attached. Really. You won’t see how they do it – and that’s half the fun. Read more…

Frozen

Frozen

Tweens: Disney has had amazing success on Broadway starting with its production of Beauty and the Beast in 1994, which ran an astonishing 13 years. Then there was – and still is – The Lion King. And most recently they produced Alladin. But all Disney musicals are not created equal, The Little Mermaid and Tarzan are among the less successful. Their latest production, Frozen, falls somewhere in-between. Read more…

Danbury Duckpin Bowling

Danbury Duckpin Bowling

Tweens: Is there anything greater than bowling as a fun indoor family activity when the weather is less than cooperative? We recently found out about a different type of bowling that’s even better for young kids – duckpin bowling. It’s an old sport, and there aren’t that many duckpin alleys left, but there is one in Danbury, Conn. Read more…

SpongeBob SquarePants

SpongeBob SquarePants

Tweens: Yes, this is a show children and parents can enjoy – even adults on their own. For 18 years on Nickelodeon – and I admit to having never watched an episode – the animated television series never generated the buzz of its immediate predecessor South Park, which was aimed at a more adult audience. Nonetheless, it has spawned two movies, a video game and now a Broadway show. Read more…

Westchester Kids Rock!

Westchester Kids Rock!

Tweens: Most parents think their children are pretty special. Who can argue with that? However, as a community Westchester County has produced a multitude of kids who, either on Broadway, the silver screen or television, have fulfilled their promise of star potential including Vanessa Williams, Jason Bateman, Denzel Washington and Rooney Mara. Read more…
Tweens: During the winter months, my family’s idea of fun is a New York City day trip. We recently checked out two new – and very different – indoor attractions in Times Square. Read more…
