We don’t keep a calendar of events. We considered it and realized that every other site has one and that’s where people go for “things to do.” However, the other sites usually list things for the kids– Not the moms. So we’ve decided to publish things for the moms to do, alone or with kids. Each month, we get so many requests to post events, so here’s your “end of the month” blog post: 10 things you might want to do in April.
- Shop the Booked Marketplace Pop-Up on 4/20. Its being held at LIFE The Place to Be in Ardsley. Guest will enjoy a unique shopping experience, lite bites, mini-massages and more. Tickets are $20 per shopper and can be purchased via this link. https://www.eventbrite.com/o/booked-parties-13201894868
2. Visit the Pleasantville Farmer’s Market.
It’s now outdoors, on Saturdays starting April 1st from 8:30am to 1pm.
56 vendors will provide the community with the highest quality regionally grown foods including seasonal vegetables (with 3 Certified Organic producers), humanely raised meat, fresh fruit and berries, prepared foods created with ingredients from regional farms, allergen-free baked goods, flowers, wine, and many other offerings.
Responding to shoppers’ requests, the Market is adding a hot breakfast and a new lunch option this summer, to complement the popular Aba’s Falafel. The Pleasantville Farmers Market attracts an average of over 3000 visitors every Saturday and has become a major regional destination. “Our research shows shoppers come from all over the county for the quality and diversity of vendors present at the Market, as well as the engaging weekly Culinary, Kids and Music programming held throughout the season,” says Steven Bates, Executive Director of Market Operations, Foodchester, Inc, the non-profit operator of the Pleasantville Farmers Market. “Another draw is that the Market is in the center of a walkable Village, close to restaurants, shops and the Burns theater.” The location is at Memorial Plaza, right at the Pleasantville Train Station.

3. Enjoy a Jazz Brunch!
Starting Sunday April 2nd at East End in Greenwich and Mediterraneo in Norwalk. So very NYC, finally out here in the suburbs! (Remember the GIRLS episode where they went to the jazz brunch? I think Marnie was singing, if I remember it correctly…. ) After watching LaLa Land last week, I am more interested in checking this out. Menus and pics below.
Guests will enjoy bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s and $1 oysters. Live Jazz music will entertain guests every Sunday in April between 12:00-4:00pm. Artists’ featured will include up-and-coming New York City Jazz musicians Margi Gianquinto and Albert Rivera. Reservations are suggested especially for large parties of 8 or more.

4. Take a Calligraphy Class

10. Book your ticket for Soul Camp on June 10th.
Yes, I am aware that this is not really an April event, but I’d buy now so as not to get sold out! These events are usually on weekends, but for the first time they are on a single day in this area for NY and NJ folks. A full day of a variety of healthy, wellness, outdoor activities.
