    Lemony Snicket (poison) pens a new series

    Thu Nov 12

    Good news for Gothic-minded tots: The mysterious Lemony Snicket—pseudonym of the somewhat less inscrutable Daniel Handler —will publish his first new series since the bestselling "A Series of Unfortunate Events" ended in 2006 (though he's certainly been busy in the meantime). The four-volume run begins, perhaps fittingly, in 2012. Dare we expect an apocalyptic scenario? It would certainly make for a very Bad Beginning .

    FREE winter tennis classes!

    Thu Nov 12

    Looking for a winter activity for your kids that doesn't involve the word "ice"? The New York Junior Tennis League has your solution: The organization is offering tennis classes for kids of all ages on weekends. The cost? Nada. A few caveats: You'll have to wake up before the sun rises (most sessions start at 6am!) and you must register in person. However, there are locations in every borough and plenty of opportunities for free play against other local tennis tots. The program just began, and runs through March; see nyjtl.org for locations and schedules. Game on!

    Double Take installation opens at the MetroTech Center

    Wed Nov 11

    Because there can never be enough offbeat things to see in New York, today the Public Art Fund debuted a brand-new series of fantastical art at the MetroTech Center in Brooklyn. Dubbed Double Take (because that's exactly what these works will make you and your kids do), the installations are surprising, illusory projects by six emerging artists. Among the oddities on display, you'll see a ghost, a strange chain-link fence, a flameless bonfire and a very funny lamppost bending into the ground. You and your brood can check out all the outdoor works from dawn until dusk every day though September of next year. MetroTech Center, Myrtle Ave between Jay St and Flatbush Ave, 718 488 8200.
