I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - A Salute to Black Achievements in Television and A Special Tribute to Kobe Bryant

Where: The Paley Center for Media

Where: 25 W. 52nd St.
            New York, NY

Who: All ages

When: Through March 1, 2020


Me & Mom - This year's Paley Center Salute to Black Achievements in Television concentrates on comedy and the BET Network's 40th anniversary.  There are costumes from BET shows and a BET award trophy. There are also costumes and props from other comedy shows including the famous Gumby costume worn by Eddie Murphy on Saturday Night Live and the EGOT necklace worn by Tracy Morgan on 30 Rock. There are monitors playing clips from a variety of different shows. There are tributes to shows celebrating special anniversaries this year including: The Flip Wilson show, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Everybody Hates Chris, and In Living Color. There is also a special exhibit of Comedy Central's recurring sketch Trevor Noah Racism Detective which includes costumes, a signed script, a magnifying class and a mug with Samuel L. Jackson's face on it. You can even try your hand at an electronic quiz on  BET history. The exhibit is not very big but it is a lot of fun to go through.


Another current exhibit at The Paley Center is a tribute to the late Kobe Bryant. This exhibit is even smaller than the other exhibit and is mostly located in the Paley Center library on the 4th floor. There are pictures of Kobe, one of his Laker's Jerseys, and one of his US Olympic uniforms. You can also watch film clips of Kobe playing and/or being interviewed from throughout his career.


Numerous screenings are also held in connection with Paley Center exhibits. Although all Paley Center exhibits are free to visit and some screenings are free as well not all screenings are free. For more information regarding upcoming Paley Center screenings, visit /www.paleycenter.org/screenings.

Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
