NY-Based Events

Once in awhile I post things for local events, sorry to those of you who can’t take advantage of them :(.  A few are below, check ‘em out if you’re in the area!

The Public Theater Shakespeare Initiative

In addition to producing professional Shakespeare in Central Park and downtown, the Shakespeare Initiative runs a sophisticated education and outreach program for adults and students in under-served communities.

  • Summer ShakeUp
  • Shakespeare Spring Break Break
  • A Midsummer Day’s Camp

In 2009, these programs served nearly 2500 New Yorkers.

For more information, dates and registration check www.publictheater.org.

Great Momasphere Events

Momasphere, based in Park Slope Brooklyn, has some fun events coming up, including …

  • March 8th, 2010: How to Prepare a Restaurant-Class Dinner for Four for Under $20! With Executive Chef of Melt Mark Simmons
  • May 23rd, 2010: Lunafest Women’s Film Festival. Award-winning Films By…For…And About Women.

The Melt event looks especially fun to me, what’s not to love about learning some tips from a Top Chef contender in an intimate little class?! 

As always, check out www.achildgrowsinbrooklyn.com and www.mommypoppins.com for the latest scoops on where to go and what to do with kids in NYC.  Both have redesigned their sites since I last mentioned them, take a look!
