Free food and fun at Big Daddy's
Tue Oct 13
I admit, I'm a total sucker for retro kitsch, even when it's a tad over-processed and overpriced. That's probably why I'm a fan of the Big Daddy's restaurants , on the Upper East Side and in Gramercy (and soon the Upper West Side ). The decor is colorful and campy—my daughter loves to identify all of the pop-cultural icons painted on the walls. The atmosphere, boisterous—don't worry about your kid making noise here! And the food, though expensive, is heavy on comfort: They serve the best Tater Tots in the city. In an effort to up weekday business, the folks behind this mini-chain have instituted smart specials and activities. Their trivia nights have been selling out (two Time Out Kids editors tried their luck at the recent Saved by the Bell trivia night.

Tuesday's pick of the day: Where the Wild Things Are Celebrity Reading
Tue Oct 13
At the risk of completely killing your Wild Things buzz, we're recommending yet another event revolving around the highly anticipated flick (which opens this Friday!). In our defense, however, this one is pretty cool: Celebs from the film, including Forest Whitaker, Catherine Keener and precocious star Max Records will read aloud from Maurice Sendak's story . Arrive as early as possible, since there's bound to be a crowd. Check out all the Wild happenings taking place throughout the city at nycgo.com/wildthingsweek .
Get a sneak peek at Wintuk in Times Square this morning
Tue Oct 13
Although the star-studded reading of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are is our official event pick of the day, if you're free this morning and in the Times Square area, you should check out the Wintuk Sneak Peek and Hula Hoop Contest (whether or not you have the kids with you!) The Cirque du Soleil extravaganza is gearing up for its annual holiday run, so the over-the-top promotion has to start. Today's offering includes a performance by spin-master Elena Lev, followed by a free hula-hoop workshop. Rumor is there will also be prizes for the participants, so start shaking your hips!
