Weekly Picks: Aug 15-19
Hello, hello mid-August - summer is flying by!
- Clean House. School & classes are days away. Make the most of your time by making a clean sweep of your munchkin’s closet, bookshelves & toy boxes. Pack up anything gently used and hit the donation boxes. Get the little ones excited with impromptu fashion shows & story times. Bonus – profit from the fun by bringing high-quality goods to Lolliposh for its upcoming back to school consignment sale.
- Score Some School Spirit. It's a back-to-school bonanza in the Magic City. Tuesday, treat your favorite teacher to champagne & industry mingling at Books & Books Coral Gables' Teacher Appreciation Night. Friday, celebrate the end of summer with carnival games, rides & concessions at Flamingo Park's Back to School bash or sport cheerleader uniforms & school spirit at Cool de Sac's Back to Cool Pep Rally in Sunset Place.
- Win Big. It's raining, it's pouring & us local moms are in need of some snoring! Entertain the munchkins guilt-free with this artistic & classical DVD set (Aretha Franklin & Zach Braff are involved). We're giving away two copies by August 23 (for that last school-free week) - click here to enter to win today!
- Weekend Plan. There's a sticky, sweaty weekend waiting to be celebrated. Hop in the kitchen with MCM's Kids Cooking Club, celebrate Tutti Bambini Maternity Concierge's grand opening, dive into a poolside screening of Flushed Away and treat your family to a free P.L.A.Y. day at Deering Estate.
