Babble New York
Looks like another snowy weekend. It’s late January, and we’re all getting antsy to get out. A little sunshine wouldn’t hurt. I’m afraid I feel the winter blues coming on. But since we can’t get sunlight, we take what we can get, and this weekend there are some fun family activities that can heighten your mood.
It’s no vitamin D, but a jazz performance or a fun children’s musical may do the trick. Here are some fun NYC activities for the family to get out of the apartment, but not necessarily into the sun.
Who is Louis Armstrong? is a performance put on by Jazz at the Lincoln Center with young people in mind. It’s Saturday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and ticket prices range from $12 to $28. Your kids will learn through music of the cheery trumpeter who spread the word of jazz music.
Flute Sleuth! is a family friendly show put on the the Femme Four flute quartet at Old First Reformed Church in Brooklyn. But this musical performance has a twist: a mystery! Check out their performance Saturday at 11 a.m. or Sunday at 3 and 4:30 p.m.
If you have some teenagers who need a day out, take them to Kids ‘n Comedy at the Gotham Comedy Club. The show is by kids for kids, ages 11-18. Tickets are $15 and the show is on Sunday at 1 p.m. They also offer classes and summer camps for your funny teen.
