This Week: Mother's Day Brunch Picks, Awesome New Museum Exhibits, Amazing Weekend Events
At the risk of sounding like one of those organized moms who always plans ahead (something I'm rarely accused of), I'm happy to share our picks for Mother's Day brunch spots in NYC a full two and a half weeks before the big day. We actually have our readers to thank for the awesome choices, so check it out and see if your favorite restaurant made the cut (and if not, add it in the comments).
We continued our spring culture coverage with a roundup of the best new museum exhibits for families and we wrote about two of our favorite free seasonal events happening this weekend: East Harlem's Street Games and the Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair.
Our sister sites are also buzzing about the best things to do and see this season. New Jersey has a roundup of cool exhibits for kids this spring and Connecticut has a list of amazing outdoor festivals in case you're looking for a fun day trip. Further afield, our Los Angeles site shared a very thoughtful post about things to do during Screen Free Week, and why a total technology tune out isn't necessarily beneficial for our kids. If you're looking for an exotic family vacation destination, we've got an enticing slide show of Avignon, France or the slightly less exotic, but cool Cleveland on our Travel site.
Here's what else we shared this week on our NYC site.
Ice-skating season may be over but thanks to NYC's indoor rinks, your kids can attend figure skating or ice hockey camp this summer.
Alison, our special needs bloggers, identified awesome apps for children with communication issues.
Our best bets for the weekend include East Harlem's old-school fun fest Street Games, the Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Cherry Blossom Festival and a slew of indoor concerts.
