Win tickets to see Baby Loves Salsa
Thu Dec 24
In the freezing cold of winter, there's nothing that warms you up quicker than a fast, fun concert. And Baby Loves Salsa, which hits the Highline Ballroom on Saturday, January 9 , is particularly caliente . Aimed at kids ages two to six, the concert-cum-storytelling session is a great way to introduce your tots to salsa, and the beauty of live music. Time Out Kids is giving away five family four-packs to the gig. Just click here to enter.

A practical guide to surviving---and enjoying---tourist season
Wed Dec 23
If you have out-of-town guests visiting for the holidays , there's a good chance you're getting pressured to visit places like the Empire State Building , Times Square and Rockefeller Center . We love our city's landmarks just as much as the next guy, but we also know how crowded they can be this time of year. That's why we've compiled a list of anti-tourist activities for families, conveniently located near the major hot spots. Click here for the info .
Bronx Zoo welcomes new baby monkey
Wed Dec 23
There's only one thing as cute as a newborn infant: a baby monkey! We warn you though, once the kids catch sight of the Bronx Zoo's new addition--a female Wolf's Guenon, who was recently born to parents Jordan and Gigi --they're going to beg to take her home (or at least get a plush toy). You can "ooh" and "aah" at the cuddly new kid in the Congo Gorilla Forest, which is one of the zoo's indoor exhibits, so you don't have to worry about freezing your tushes off.
