Bill and I are taking the boys to New York after Christmas. We’ll hang with Aunt Lulu and Uncle P and the new baby some, but we’ll spend a lot of time out on the town. We already have plenty of activities planned: Korean barbecue, Dylan’s Candy Bar, the Rockettes, Chinatown, the Brooklyn Art Museum and so forth.
I also have individual outings planned with each child, including Porter and Mama’s Sushi-Eating Extravaganza, Drew and Mama’s Knifty Knife Purchase and Finn and Mama’s Search for Cool Threads.
I’m always looking for ideas on things to do with the kids. They went to the Museum of Natural History and the ESPN Zone when I had my spine surgery up there.
Finn is 11 — does anyone have a suggestion as to where to find him some cool shirts that hopefully are less expensive than Abercrombie? I’m not sure he’s quite big enough to fit into Urban Outfitters, but that problem will probably solve itself naturally within the next couple of months.
The boys will eat pretty much anything although I haven’t offered them escargot yet, so restaurant recommendations are welcome as well. We’ll travel by cab, bus or subway but are headquartered on the Upper East Side (Land Of The Expensive French Bistros). We like to eat at cheaper places.
All right readers– show me what you’ve got! Thanks!
