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

A digital musical experience loosely inspired by the dystopian 1976 cult film Logan's Run, set in a society that kills people when they turn 30. After receiving that fateful birthday card in the mail, you decide to escape, and the ensuing journey leads not only to frozen caves and violent robots, but also to a radical questioning of the self and the world that shaped you. CAPRICORN 29 reimagines the not-quite-midlife crisis as an opportunity to embrace the terror and joy of blowing up your life.

RealTime Interventions (Pittsburgh, PA)

Actors will cultivate meaningful experiences for each participant through daily text messages and weekly challenges meant to guide each participant along their personal path to liberation.

Lance Horne (New York, NY)

12) Education & Excitement over February Winter Break at 
Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island

As a way to overcome pandemic fatigue, enjoy the great outdoors and take a socially distant trip with the family, Statue Cruises runs boats to both islands seven days/week with service from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM daily for locals to enjoy right in their own backyards. From the great outdoors, to the history, very light crowds and being able to safely social distance, here are five reasons why now might be the right time for a winter excursion:

·         Making Up for the Missed School Trip – With most school trips cancelled, including the annual trip to Liberty and Ellis Island, take the kids on a fun boat ride to a priceless educational experience that many students are missing out on because of the pandemic.

·         Open Space Galore – Plenty of open space on both islands to enjoy the great outdoors and the spectacular views of New York Harbor. It may be cold, but you have Lady Liberty to warm you up.

·         Lean and Clean – With strict social distancing guidelines and cleaning protocols in place, including deep cleanings of vessels throughout each day, mask requirements and more, Statue Cruises is taking all the necessary precautions to help keep guests safe.

·         Alone Time with Lady Liberty - When can you visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with no wait times and lighter crowds.

·         Timed and contactless ticketing via statuecruises.com helps manage capacity while providing easy flexibility to change the date/time of a reservation.

15) Pandemic-Friendly Hit Offers Special Valentine’s Day Live Performance
February 13, 2021

Bated Breath Theatre Company will present a special Valentine’s Day edition of its live hit VOYEUR: THE WINDOWS OF TOULOUSE-LAUTREC on February 13, 2021. In addition to this acclaimed intimate performance experience, each ticket holder will also receive a red rose provided by Starbright Floral Design (starbrightnyc.com), a glass of Prosecco, and chocolate truffles. Tickets are $100 at www.unmakinglautrecplay.com.

VOYEUR is an open air, immersive theatrical experience that guides an intimate eight-person audience through the dreams of iconic artist Toulouse-Lautrec as he recalls his final absinthe-laced years living and working in Montmartre – and his love for can-can dancer Jane Avril. It is a unique blend of theater, dance, art, walking tour, live music and puppetry. The sidewalks, doorways and windows of Greenwich Village become the setting for VOYEUR as live accompaniment collides with the city’s soundscape, transporting attendees into the romantic, bohemian world of 1899 Paris. 

In an effort to maintain additional safety during the Covid-19 pandemic, audience members will be required to wear a mask at all times and maintain a safe social distance for the duration of the performance. Hand sanitizing stations will be available at stops throughout the tour. This immersive performance is hosted primarily outdoors, with one short venture indoors into a spacious atmosphere capable of safe social distancing. A flexible ticket exchange policy will be offered to those who may feel ill in order to facilitate responsible event participation. Audience members are asked to check local weather forecasts and dress accordingly.

The pair trade barbs, flirtations, and vows of love, weaving their marital journey into a sophisticated tapestry of song and conversation worthy of Nick and Nora Charles. Who would have thought the story of a couple of a certain age could be so delicious and insightful? Music Direction is by Gerry Dieffebach. _MARRIAGE, The Ups and Downs...in Song*_ was originally produced at The Duplex.
