WINNER: Congratulations to arch!

Canal Park Playhouse is a cozy performance venue in TriBeCa that is quickly becoming a family event space by offering classic shorts from when we were little, so we can share them with our kids. Beginning on January 7 for a limited engagement, Canal Park Playhouse will offer screenings of The Little Rascals on weekend mornings at 11 am.

You’ll enjoy three Our Gang shorts with Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Darla, Froggie and the rest of the gang screened in the intimate Playhouse theater. As a bonus, you’ll also see classic Casper the Friendly Ghost and Popeye cartoons. Here’s the thing that makes it really cool. As part of Canal Park Playhouse’s Classic Brunch Matinee series, families can enjoy brunch from The Waffle Iron Café. The menu includes hot-off-the-waffle-iron spinach, mushroom, smoked chicken sausage frittatas; French toast; and of course Traditional Belgian Waffles with pure Vermont maple syrup and butter as well as the house specialty The Playhouse Pink Waffle (a pink waffle with strawberries and whipped cream). Greek yogurt, granola and fresh fruit are also available.

Thanks to the generosity of Canal Park Playhouse, we are giving away a full morning’s worth of fun. One lucky winner will receive brunch for a family of four and 4 tickets to the The Little Rascals screening on either Saturday, January 7 or Sunday, January 8. (winner can choose)

And we can get this project completed in time for Montclair's sesquicentennial when we can stick a fork into historic preservation as a public policy.
