January 29 – 30: Weekend Links for Brooklyn Mamas

Flex Donuts

I’ve now gone completely round the bend with last night’s snowfall, which can mean only two things: brownies and donuts. In that order.

Today, we’re making the best brownies ever, and I’m hoping to score some donuts in the next couple of days. Have to trek to Grand Central for them (see below), but it seems justified given the circumstances.

Now, on to some weekend linky love….

Flex Donuts Pop-Up Shop Opens in Grand Central Terminal. Drown your winter sorrows in flavors like spiced chocolate and salted caramel — I’m hoping for meyer lemon, too. — TimeOut New York Kids

Check out one of the upcoming Summer Camp Fairs to see what the options will be for your kids this year — one’s happening this weekend in my ‘hood, at the Grand Prospect Ballroom (FREE, but you need to register.) — New York Family

The Kings County General Store kicks off its 2011 season this weekend at Southpaw — we went to one of their markets last year (yes, with the kids), and it was fun! Look for cool local designers and yummy food to keep little hands occupied while you browse. — Brooklyn Based

You still have time to get some of the cute Valentine’s Day Cards that Chrissy wrote about — we ordered our Robots (for Magnolia) and Monster Trucks (for Jasper) from ItsyBitsyPaper this week.

And, like summer camps, another warm-weather activity to fantasize about now is taking the kids on an overnight camping trip to the Zoo (The Bronx Zoo’s Overnight Family Adventure Safari.) It’s BYO tent and sleeping bag, but they plan tons of up-close animal-focused activities for the kids (yes, they get to pet some of the zoo residents, too). At $155 a person, it’s splurgey, but also an unusual treat for a city kid. — Mommy Poppins.

Happy weekend! Stay warm.
