Monday's pick of the day: Corduroy screening
Mon Nov 2
Didn't know that Don Freeman's classic tale about a department store-dwelling teddy bear had been adapted into a film? Neither did we. Today, your brood can watch the live-action short based on the tome, followed by A Pocket for Corduroy , a "sequel" to the original, in which Corduroy is forgotten in a laundromat and must find his way home.
What to do this weekend: Oct 31-Nov 1 event picks
Sat Oct 31
We're lucky enough to have Halloween on a Saturday this year (yay!). Unfortunately, rain may be in the forecast (boo!). Fret not, little Frankensteins: We've got plenty of outdoor and indoor options so you can celebrate the holiday no matter what tricks Mother Nature may have in store. If you're looking to stay inside, check out the Brooklyn Children's Museum's Monster Mash Party Nights both this evening and tomorrow (only $10!). However, lots of completely free events abound: The Winter Garden at the World Financial Center transforms into a haunted house on Saturday, while Tribeca hot spot Moomah treats families to plenty of spooky fun. Looking for some fresh air? Prospect Park holds a big festival of creepy activities, or head to a participating zoo or aquarium for their ghastly gatherings throughout the weekend. But what's Halloween without a parade? There's more than just the blowout in the Village; check out processions in Park Slope ...
Jamba Juice Bananaman handing out Ricky's gift cards right now
Fri Oct 30
Sometimes procrastination pays off! If you haven't yet bought your tyke a Halloween costume, head to Ricky's Soho location ( 590 Broadway between Houston and Prices Sts ) between noon and 2pm today for a chance to snag store gift cards courtesy of Jamba Juice. As part of the company's "Feel Good Campaign," Bananaman will be surprising 350 shoppers with $30 gift cards to Ricky's as well as Jamba Bucks (which range from $1 off Jamba products to $10,000 in cash). Budget issue solved; fighting for the last Spider-man costume is another problem entirely.
Friday's pick of the day: Halloween Extravaganza at St. John the Divine
Fri Oct 30
What's Halloween without a good old-fashioned spook-fest? The Cathedral of St. John the Divine provides just that tonight at its Halloween Extravaganza . First up is the "Procession of the Ghouls" during which costumed creatures of the night from the Mettawee River Theater Company play tricks on visitors. Afterward, the old-school black-and-white horror flick Nosferatu will be screened. Bring your little boos—and your bravery!
