Kids Night on Broadway tickets go on sale Monday!
Wed Nov 4
Although you can find discounts to Broadway shows every day , none of the usual deals compare to the bargain that is Kids Night on Broadway . On Tuesday, February 2, Wednesday, February 3 and Sunday, February 7, children ages 6 to 18 can catch a slew of Broadway shows for free — provided you buy an accompanying full-priced adult ticket. Participating productions include tried-and-true family faves ( The Lion King , Wicked) tween-pleasers ( Bye Bye Birdie , Billy Elliot the Musical , West Side Story ) and even a few choices for mature teens ( Oleanna , Next to Normal ). Tickets go on sale on Monday, November 9 at noon, and we're sure they're going to sell out fast.

Bronx Zoo Turns 110 this Sunday
Tue Nov 3
"Happy Birthday to you, You belong in a zoo...." Never will the words to that song ring truer than this Sunday, when the Bronx Zoo celebrates its 110th birthday. The first 110 visitors to arrive will receive free admission —that's a value $52 for a family of four—so arrive early (the zoo opens at 10am). In honor of the occasion, the wildlife conservation society is throwing a fabulous shindig (just in case seeing tons of animals isn't enough of a draw for your kids to make the trip). On the lineup of activities is a cake-cutting ceremony (of course), performances throughout the day by the Wildlife Theater players and lots of learning demonstrations involving the zoo's resident sea lions.
