Amazing crepes at Yorkville Creperie on the Upper East Side
Fri Oct 9
Eating crepes stateside usually makes us long for the ones in Paris but we were pleasantly surprised by the treats at Yorkville Creperie on the Upper East Side . Kids will be wowed by the sweet selections, such as the "S'more"—chocolate, graham crackers crumbs and fluff—and the "PB&J"—creamy peanut butter with strawberry or grape jelly. Parents might be more inclined to go for the savory stuff: The "Roma" is filled with chicken and mozzarella cheese and topped with bruschetta. Plus, the open layout is perfect for strollers and little ones who don't always stay in their seats. The eatery even hosts storytime sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 11am.
Flowers are blooming in Chelsea through Saturday
Fri Oct 9
Looking to brighten your mood on this overcast day? Then escort your tykes to Chelsea's Marlborough Gallery for a taste of spring (albeit an artificial one). The folks at the awesome kiddie art collective Hi Art just reminded us that the the space's current exhibit, " Will Ryman: A New Beginning" is closing on Saturday, so it's your last chances to see the artist's oversized sculptures of red and pink flowers, garden detritus and insects. The works are two- to seven-feet tall and the enlarged scale is intended to give visitors the feeling that they are rodents traipsing through a garden. So what are you waiting for? It's time to stop and see the roses!
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.
What to do this weekend Oct 10-12: free for all!
Fri Oct 9
It's official! It's not going to rain this three-weekend, at least according to the site I check . It is going to feel like fall, however, but that's okay: Just break out the light coat and maybe a hat and you'll be good to go. The main event is openhousenewyork on Saturday and Sunday. Seemingly every single cultural institution in town is inviting folks to visit for free, and there are a bunch of kid-friendly offerings in addition to tours. Some activities are already full (hopefully you're one of the lucky few who made a reservation to check out Tom Otterness's studio), but there are so many things going on that no matter where you live or what you're into, you'll find something to please you. Check ohny.org for a complete list of venues and events. New York Week for the Animals also kicks off this Saturday. We already rounded up some of the highlights , including free spaying, neutering and microchipping in northeastern Central Park. This is your...
