Two Really Hot Ways to Stay Cool This Summer: Natural History Museum Event and Chelsea Piers Bowling!

I don’t post a lot of “event” type stuff on my blog.  There are fabulous sites out there like MommyPoppins and GoCityKids who have the serious lowdown all the time.  But, these two summer special events were both too good not to share, since I know I’ll be doing both of them. First:

“Kids Bowl Free & Adults Breath Easier” Every Day This Summer at 300 New York!

300 (the Bowling Alley) at Chelsea Piers.  Air conditioning! Bowling! Did I mention Air Conditioning?  Sometimes you need a break from the gross reality of an NYC summer and my kids being the mathletes that they are love bowling.  And that game room attached to it at 300.  Here’s the deal – kids get a free game and free shoe rental (please don’t forget socks, ick) if they sign up for a Kids Club Card, also free.  Here are the details:

Where:         300 New York at Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex.
Pier 60/23rd & West Side Hwy. New York, NY 10011

What:           All summer long, 300 Kids Club Card members (12 & under) get one free game and shoe rental (Sun-Fri before 4pm). Card can be used once a day thru Labor Day.

When:           Now till September 7th, 2010

The 2nd is…


Anything I’ve ever been to at the American Museum Of Natural History has been run perfectly, is chock full of great information and highly entertaining.  So, when I heard about Meeting a Penguin Day I got super excited.  I’m a total sucker for penguins.  Here are the details or check out their website

Wild, Wild World:  Live Penguins!!
Find out everything you ever wanted to know about penguins at the July 10 Wild, Wild World program, where you’ll be able to see and interact with a live Black-Footed Penguin. Jarod Miller, host of nationally syndicated television series “Animal Exploration with Jarod Miller” will discuss the habitats and behaviors of these “extreme climate” animals, including surprising facts about where they live and what kind of parents they make. Come with questions and be prepared to march away experts!

WHEN            Saturday, July 10, 11 am–noon and 1–2 pm

WHERE         Linder Theater, first floor

ADMISSION $10 children, $12 adults; Members’ tickets are $8 children, $10 adults

See you there!
