    See camels, sheep and a donkey at Radio City tomorrow

    Wed Oct 28

    Did you miss out on Barnum & Bailey's elephant parade back in March? Well, tomorrow's your chance to make it up to your kids: At 11am, two camels, two sheep and a donkey from the Radio City Christmas Spectacular 's famous "Living Nativity" scene will be escorted into the Music Hall by a handful of costumed Rockettes for their first rehearsal. The dancers will be posing with the animals outside the theater's main marquee (on Sixth Ave at 50th St) until around noon, when they'll head inside. Provided the crowds aren't too overwhelming, you should be able to sneak a few photos of your kid in front of the spectacle. So charge up the camera!

    A Christmas Carol Train Tour

    Wed Oct 28

    Normally we hate this kind of promotional tie-in, but this is actually pretty cool. In honor of the upcoming Christmas Carol movie (starring Jim Carrey and set to be released on November 6), Disney is hosting a special event at Grand Central Terminal this weekend . Yes, we know you're going to be swamped with Halloween happenings, but if you find yourself with a few extra minutes swing by 42nd Street for a sneak peek at the movie in 3-D, a station where kids can morph their faces into several of the film's characters and much more. When you're done, treat your crew to lunch at one of the Terminal's many restaurants—we recommend Two Boots and Brother Jimmy's BBQ . Photograph: 2008 ImageMovers Digital LLC. All Rights Reserved.

    Wednesday's pick of the day: Ice Theatre of New York

    Winter is still a few months away but we're already looking forward to its seasonal pleasures, including gliding on the ice at Rockefeller Center. Today, you can get a graceful glimpse at some pros in action with a free performance by the Ice Theatre of New York . The performing skating ensemble, which combines elements of the contemporary dance, music and art into its routines, presents highlights from its benefit gala. Happy ice trails!

    TastyBite unfrozen dinners

    Tue Oct 27

    Our latest food obsession is the line of shelf-stable prepared meals from TastyBite . Normally we're not fans of packaged food, which is often overprocessed, unhealthy and culinarily blah. But this company, which produces Indian and Thai dishes that often cater to special diets (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, kosher), is rocking our overscheduled, budget-conscious world. Each delicious dish is flavored with a different mixture of turmeric, clove, cardamom, cinnamon, fennel, cilantro and curry leaves. They're spicy but not hot by any adult measure; adventurous kids can handle them too. We're still making our way through all the flavors, but so far favorites include Sprouts Curry & Basmati Rice, Spinach Dal & Basmati Rice, Punjab Eggplant and Spinach Soy. The meals have a good balance of healthy fat, fiber and protein. For instance, the Vegetable Supreme & Basmati Rice meal contains 317 calories, 6g fat, 11g fiber, 11g protein and 18% RDA of iron. All meals contain...
