    At this time of year, the pumpkin craze takes over. There's pumpkin custard, pumpkin fro-yo, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin doughnuts and even pumpkin coffee (we've got those last two on our desks right now). Today you can get in on the pumpkin fever for free: The Street Sweets truck will be doling out pumpkin whoopie pies and coffee , gratis, from 12:15--2pm. Head over to 50th between Sixth and Seventh Avenues to indulge. We suggest showing up on the earlier side, as quantities will likely be limited.

    Michaels craft store comes to the UWS

    Thu Oct 22

    Good news for creative Manhattan families: The celebrated suburban craft store, Michaels , is now open on Columbus Avenue and 97th Street. The 14,700-square-foot shop, which already has outposts in Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx, is packed to the rim with supplies for jewelry making, scrapbooking, custom framing and more. Our favorite part: the children's department, of course! The section boasts American Girl crafts, activity kits, tons of supplies for school projects and the largest selection of Crayola products in any Michaels store. Photograph: Caroline Voagen Nelson

    Thursday's pick of the day: Free storytime at the JCC

    Thu Oct 22

    You could stay at home today and read Junior Goodnight Moon for the billionth time, or you could head over to the Upper West Side for a special storytime with other local kids at the Jewish Community Center. After tales are read aloud, baby bibliophiles can gobble up gratis cookies and milk.

    Win tickets to see the Imagination Movers in concert

    Thu Oct 22

    I admit, I get a smile on my face every time I watch my four-year-old help the Imagination Movers solve one of their quandaries on their eponymous Disney Playhouse series. So I was stoked (seems like the verb to use here) to hear that, in addition to the pop band's new CD , For Those About to Hop, the quartet is going on tour . On Sunday, November 8, Rich, Scott, Dave and Smitty will hit NYC for a pair of practically sold-out concerts at the Nokia Theatre Time Square. We're giving away a family four-pack of tickets to the 1:30pm show, along with a copy of the band's new Walt Disney Records album. Click here for a chance to win!
