donuts on the High Line

The High Line, already one of our favorite places to take the kids, gets even more appealing for fallColicchio & Sons just opened up a temporary donut stand there! Now through October 13th, order cider or pumpkin spice (with a side of cream cheese frosting) donuts and Stumptown coffee. Then let the kids roam and enjoy the plants, old train tracks, and views. My kind of outing. (Thanks to Katherine for the tip!) — the strong buzz

Lots of new deal sites for NYC moms seem to be popping up: Last week, I wrote about Plum District, and Cool Mom Picks just wrote about Gaggle of Chicks. Here’s one I can vouch for first-hand: doodledeals My friend Maureen turned me on to it and, though I just signed up last week, so far so good. Today’s deal? 50+% off at Moomah Creative Arts Cafe, which we’ve visited, written about, and love. And last week: half-off a pedi at our fave nail spot, Sweet Lily in Tribeca. (Snapped that one up in a hurry.) I feel like the deals I’m seeing pop up in my in-box are pretty tempting — so sign up and take advantage! — doodledeals

Fall festival round-up: the first-ever NYC World Maker Faire (sounds fun and impressive!), DUMBO Arts Festival, the Atlantic Antic, and more. — A Child Grows in Brooklyn

I’ll see you at… none of them! A fairy godmother has, for the second weekend in a row, magically made a quiet little house outside the city appear for us. The kids can run around barefoot. The sound of the beach is *right there.* We’d be fools to say no, so we didn’t.

Happy weekend!
