Mardi Gras in LA might be better called "low fat" Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t know how to celebrate. The Farmers Market at 3rd and Fairfax and Amoeba Records both annually find ways to let the good times roll (and the beads fly) for kids.
One love story that never grows old and seems to find its way back to the El Capitan every February is Lady and the Tramp. If you want to make this a true event, spring for an accompanying spaghetti dinner at Miceli’s, which replicates the candlelit scene from the movie.

Walt Disney’s classy cocker spaniel isn’t the only one with good manners. At Santa Monica's Superhero and Princess Academy, our heroes and heroines’ evening of etiquette at the Academy Ball is interrupted by villains whose rude and evil antics must be thwarted with a bit of help from the audience.
We hope you're enjoying our new look at Mommy Poppins. The site may be new but one thing hasn’t changed: you can still find many more things to do this week on our Event Calendar and February GoList.
