Sesame Street, Shrek, Snowshoeing, & Stooges This Week

Really, it’s impressive that I’m pulling this post out at all. We spent much of the afternoon and evening skiing, I sampled some delightful home-brewed home cider, and frankly? I’m pretty much ready to be sleeping. So I’ll ask in advance for you to forgive typos or missed items. And always don’t forget to check out the pages to your right, like What About TODAY?, which includes regularly scheduled events, and the Embrace Winter! page, which has links to skating, sledding, and other winter fun.

Here’s what I’ve got:

All Week:

  • It’s Sesame Street Live presents 1-2-3 Imagine! with Elmo and Friends at the Glens Falls Civic Center on Tuesday and Wednesday, where tickets cost $14 to $52 and are required for ages 1 and up. Then it moves on to Albany’s Palace Theatre over the weekend, where tickets range from $15 to $67.
  • Shrek the Musical is at Proctors in Schenectady starting on Tuesday through the weekend. Tickets are $20 and up.
  • Moreau Lake‘s got several snowshoe hikes, including a Beginner Snowshoe from 1-3 pm on Thursday.

  • Albany Pine Bush has Pine Bush Pups: How to Stay Warm in the Bitter Cold? at 10:30 am. It’s free, and you can register online.

Wednesday, January 25th:

  • At 10:30 am, it’s Alphabet Soup: S at the Children’s Museum at Saratoga. Free with museum admission, for ages 3 and up. Funny that the letter this week is S, considering my title! Or maybe it’s only funny if you’re overtired. . . .

    Here is something fun to keep in mind for a few weeks from now, especially if you want to get a great deal on tickets! The Harlem Globetrotters are bringing their 2012 World Tour to Albany on Sunday, February 5 at 1PM at the Times Union Center!

    Even better, if you go to to purchase tickets, you can save $7 when using the promotional coupon code MOM. Restrictions apply.

    The wows, the laughs, the magic – these moments become the memories that last a lifetime! Highflying dunks … eye-popping tricks… hilarious jokes … the Globetrotters will have you smiling from start to finish. At the Globetrotters, the game of basketball sets the stage for an experience you will never forget. The Harlem Globetrotters just signed a historic rookie class that includes the top three finishers from the 2011 College Slam Dunk Contest!
