Mon Oct 12
Looks like Yo Gabba Gabba! is as big a hit on stage as it is on the small screen. The upcoming live tour , There's a Party in my City, sold out in one day last week, including the two November 21 performances at New York's Beacon Theater . But now there's cause to dance: A 5pm show on November 21 has been added, but tickets are selling out fast. Visit ticketmaster.com right now or risk the wrath of your party-loving preschooler.
Monday's event pick: Columbus Day Parade & Festival
Mon Oct 12
If you missed the San Gennaro fest, today's your chance for a redo. If you're lucky enough to have the day off of work to spend with your kids, head to midtown to watch bands in costume and various Italian-American associations march up Fifth Avenue alongside bountiful floats and sleek rides at the Columbus Day Parade & Festival . If downtown is more your scene, hundreds of vendors will be dishing up treats like cannoli, pizza, and gelato. Happy Columbus Day!

Friday's pick of the day: Bolt screening at the Moxie Spot
Fri Oct 9
After a long work week, you can barely muster up the energy to pick up Chinese let alone plan an actual Friday night outing. The Moxie Spot sympathizes. To help you out, the Cobble Hill eatery invites families to come out, grab a bite and take in a free flick. Tonight, Disney's Bolt is screened after a yet-to-be-announced short. The feature flick follows a Hollywood white shepherd who believes that his on-screen superpowers are real—until he finds himself off-set (in NYC!) with only his buds and intuition to help get him back home.
