Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Katie M

Welcome to the last Wednesday of 2009! In case you missed our event scoop last Wednesday, clear your calendar today because Big Bang Boom! is playing at the Greensboro Children’s Museum TODAY at 11:45 am. There will also be a countdown to “Noon” Year’s Eve Eve. All this is free with museum admission. The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem is also holding a Noon Year’s Eve Party tomorrow –see details below.

And if you’re lucky enough to have scored a babysitter for Thursday night, I’ve also included a couple of “date night” ideas below.

We’re excited to ring in the New Year here on Triad Smarty Pants. Stay tuned for another year of fun and useful blogs, Smarty Moms, and fantabulous contests and give-aways. In fact, we already have a great give-away lined up for you in early January –be sure to watch for it. Enjoy the weekend, and please be safe this New Years Eve!
