Weekly Events: Feb. 5 and beyond

Picture 8.pngOur keyboards are smoking over here at MontclairKids, and we’ve finally outsmarted our weekly calendar feature. Well, almost.

From now until infinity–or at least until we get real jobs–we will list family, kid and generally appropriate local things to do in the Upcoming Events calendar to the right. (Note to spammers: We’re not interested in horny divorcees with breasts almost as big at record-breaker Sheyla Hershey’s.)

So if you ever find yourself alone with kids, scratching your head about what to do with them, click on the date to the right to see everything that’s going on.

We’re still working out a few bugs, so here are this week’s highlights, starting with the Children’s Language Workshop tonight, and check out Chocolate Chip Chamber Music this Saturday.
