From the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Whitney Museum and the Museum of Modern Art, this city offers an absolutely amazing array of choices. The fine art gallery scene here is also huge, with galleries available for viewing art all over the city, from uptown to midtown and all the way downtown to Soho and Tribeca. Opera and other live musical events are also big attractions in New York, and the choices are nonstop.

For live shows, Broadway is obviously a major attraction, with shows running nonstop, offering major productions with big names from Hollywood and the world of theater. It’s smart to take a look at some Broadway play reviews before planning a trip, so that you’ll have a good idea of what is running during your visit, and what the top-rated shows are. From big musicals to important dramas, Broadway offers amazing choices in shows that will entertain, educate and inspire.

The live cabaret scene in New York is also a big attraction, as these shows offer audiences a way to enjoy a show in a more intimate setting, while also enjoying food and drink during the show. These shows always deliver a lot of entertainment for your travel dollar, so be sure to plan on seeing cabaret while in New York, too.

So, next time you want to plan a trip to an exciting location, be sure to check out the reviews and book some tickets to a great Broadway show, while also visiting a few New York museums while you’re there.

How to Accommodate Out of Town Family

Posted by admin in Family Affairs, House and Home on 11-12-2017

The holidays can be a hectic time of year for most people. It’s usually an opportunity to spend time with extended family and catch up. However, accommodating out of town family can be difficult with limited space. It’s enough to make you want to put everyone up in a hotel. However, before you do that, consider some additional ways to provide a place to sleep for your family without calling a local hotel.

Put Additional Beds in the Bedroom
You may not have extra rooms for relatives but you could get extra beds. In fact, this would probably be the easiest thing to do. You can pay for a service like roll away bed rentals and avoid actually purchasing additional beds. This is a clever idea because these beds can easily fold and roll when not in use. Not only does this solve the sleeping arrangement dilemma, it frees up space when the beds are not in use.

Utilize the Home Office
If you need more room, consider using a room that’s not dedicated to sleep. The home office can be used as a makeshift guest room while your relatives are in town. You could add a futon or some other sleeping accommodation to create a temporary guest room.

Make the Den Area a Multipurpose Room
The den area could have a dual use while your family is in town. It could be a sitting area by day and a sleeping area by night. This creates extra space for sleeping accommodations and still allows the room to be used for social purposes. You have to be creative with space to house a large extended family. However, if you are creative, it can be done. If you have a pull-out sofa this idea works even better. However, if you don’t, you can still provide for your family by using sleeping bags and making a pallet on the sofa itself.

The holidays are an exciting time of year. Most of us look forward to spending time with extended family. It can be stressful to figure out how to host your large extended family when you have limited space. However, if you use a little creativity you can find ways to create space for everyone. Most of us don’t get to see our extended family very often. It’s worth the creative effort it would take to comfortably accommodate everyone.

What Do You See In A School Cafeteria?

Posted by admin in Family Affairs, Furniture and Fixture, Parenting on 16-10-2016

When you enter a school cafeteria, you often see long tables with either benches or stools. Some cafeterias have tables for students to sit in so that they are comfortable. There are other types of cafeteria furniture Canada companies sell so that schools have their own look when it comes to the lunch environment.

The basis for any school cafeteria is the table. If it’s an elementary school, you might want bright colors and fun designs with chairs that are in colors that match the tables. However, middle and high school students likely want something basic, so a plain white table and simple chairs or stools would probably be the best option. There are several sizes of tables to choose from, such as those that are long and seat several people at a time and those that are circular. These are often best for smaller schools that don’t have as many students.

Another item that you might see in a school cafeteria is a beverage cart. This is often positioned near the doors that lead to the serving line. It usually holds condiments, cups, napkins and other items that students would need to get to complete their meal. Trays are another item that you’ll see. There are some that have compartments so that each food is separated while others are a simple tray that will hold a plate and small bowls. The compartments are ideal for schools that serve the same thing to all students without options, such as daycare centers, preschools and elementary schools.

When you go to the kitchen of the cafeteria, you’ll see that there are several appliances that are used. There are prep stations so that the staff can make the food that is served. There are refrigerators that hold the milk, juice and other items that are used on a daily basis. You might see an ice cream case where students can get ice cream with their lunch. There will usually be either one large stove or a few smaller stoves so that the staff can prepare the meals for the day in a short time.

How to Successfully Tailgate With the Entire Family

Posted by admin in Family Affairs, General on 13-09-2016

When your favorite sports team comes to town, it’s time to head out to the stadium and cheer them on. Part of being at the game is the tailgating that occurs before it. The entire family can enjoy some time out of the house as everyone gets excited about the upcoming competition. Get ready for a spectacular season by following a few guidelines about tailgating success.

Haul the Big Items

A grand tailgating time can’t rely on a small cooler and a fast-food bag of items. Be ready to bring the large cooler and a barbecue in most cases. You’ll probably be tailgating for several hours before the game so fill up the car with as many food and drinks as you can. Ideally, use a truck or SUV as your transportation on game day.

Grab the Outdoor Games

There’s no room for television viewing in the stadium parking lot. Entertain your family with active games, including regulation cornhole boards. These physical games get everyone involved in the fun while sparking conversation. You may even start a friendly competition with an adjacent family during the festivities. Fun and socializing are the goals of the day as your family takes time out of a busy schedule.

Shake Out the Umbrella

Regardless of the temperature outside, being under the bright sun for a long time period is tiring. Bring a large umbrella or foldable tent in order to cover most of your tailgating area. The shade alone is enough to keep you relaxed until game time. Bring foldable seats too, and you’ll have most of the comforts of home.

Keep the Menu Simple

Because you need to haul your food items out to the stadium, don’t cook anything that’s complicated. Hot dogs, hamburgers and chips are perfect choices for your grill. The condiments can also be simple, such as lettuce, tomato and ketchup. Fill the cooler with a mixture of different drinks that will please everyone. Water, soda and juices are a good combination so that everyone is hydrated.

Be courteous to others as you enjoy the party atmosphere in the parking lot. Park your vehicle between the lines, and only spread out as much as necessary. Everyone should have a chance to enjoy a relaxing time before the big game. In the end, the family might meet others who’ll become your best friends throughout the season.
