50% off Single and Tandem Bike Rentals and Pedicab Tours

“Lady, Lady give me your answer do…It won’t be a stylish marriage, I can’t afford a carriage. But you’ll look sweet, upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.”

Am I the only one who thinks of that song when I hear someone mention a tandem bike?

Anyway, how many times have you looked at someone taking a pedicab ride and thought “Looks like so much fun, but totally NOT in the budget.” ? I know I have.

Prefer to ride your own bike?  With this deal you can rent a single or tandem bike instead, if you prefer.

I think I may just sit back and let someone else do the pedaling 🙂


$15 for $30 Worth of Crafts at Little Shop of Crafts

My children are both very creative and artistic, which is definitely something that I want to encourage.  There are times, however, when I’d prefer to do a huge messy painting project with the kidlets and have someone else clean up.

Better yet?  Have them make the entire mess somewhere other than at home 🙂

At either Little Shop of Crafts UES or UWS location, you and your kids can paint pottery, paint a plastercraft, bead a necklace, make a mosaic or stuff your very own stuffed animal. They even have special grown-ups only evenings (wine included!) if you’d rather get your craft on alone and leave your kids with a sitter 😉


Didn’t Your Mother Ever Tell You Not to Pay Full Price?

Unless you've been living under a rock (proverbial or otherwise) you've heard of Groupon …and maybe even Living Social , DoodleDeals or Mamapedia's Sweet Deals.

Enter Jdeal.


Jdeal is "a premiere online discount site offering daily deals geared toward the Jewish consumer."  Huh?

Basically, all of Jdeal's food offers are for Kosher certified establishments, and many (but not all) deals appeal specifically to Jewish consumers.

Though the company had a soft launch in November 2010, Jdeal is officially launching this Thursday, January 14th 2011!

Why miss out, bubbeleh?
