i rock, but i need a tot

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

the warehouse district doesn't exactly scream family fun. but on saturday march 8th from 2 to 5pm velvet dog on w 6th is going to be turned into quite the kid friendly zone.

recently a couple of local mom's started an organization called rock-n-tot cleveland to create an "out on the town" experience for kids (through age 12), and their parents (or anyone who has a part in their lives). the goal of this event is to simply encourage families to spend quality time together.

there will a dj playing great kid friendly music, and there will be loads of fun activities for the kids. you get giveaways and goody bags too! the kids will get snacks and juice boxes and the adults can sip on an "adult beverage" if they choose.

now i don't have any children but i may just have to borrow a kid and check out rock-n-tot. i'm really curious to see what velvet dog looks like during the day when i'm sober. ha. i think this would be such a fun event for downtown residents to take their nieces and nephews to, or for families in the suburbs to check out my downtown neighborhood.

tickets are $12 a piece advance sales or $15 at the door - check out the rock-n-tot website for more information and to purchase tickets online.


  1. You ought to check out Bella Dubby in Lakewood just about any Saturday during the late morning/early afternoon. My friend teaches these crazy art classes for the kiddies and the hipster parents hang and drink their lattes and micro-brews.

    Not an every Saturday kind of thing, but interesting from a single person's perspective in a cultural anthropology sort of way.

  2. There is a thing called Baby Love Disco here in Chicago and a few other cities. Same idea. Close out a venue in the early afternoon and get a dj for the kids.So cute!

  3. The first RnT was in February and it rocked. We have two little guys and used to go to Baby Loves Disco when we lived in NYC so we were glad to have something like this come along.


Comments are cool. This is a fact.
