Valentine’s Day–Here’s the plan, Tucson families!

January 26th, 2015 · Comments Off

V-Day is on a Saturday this year so your chances of getting a babysitter are next to none.

Another thing–I really am not a fan of going out to dinner on Valentine’s Day. Probably because everyone else is doing so, and it feels….annoying.

My husband and I have tradition, 12 years now, of eating artichokes and drinking wine on Valentine’s Day. At home. Which is hard with kids, and getting a babysitter doesn’t help much if you want to be IN YOUR OWN HOME. I’d much rather pay for my kids to have a blast at Playformance and buy some amazing food and eat at home than pay for a babysitter AND a restaurant meal. It’s a better deal, and way more fun for all.

Awesome solution–PLAYFORMANCE!

$30 per child (dinner included). They’ll be playing games, building ninja courses, getting fit and making friends. Space is LIMITED so sign up now!

So you can go out OR stay home, and really celebrate the relationship that is often a bit neglected when we’re doing our best to be great parents. (At least that’s how I’m feeling…)

MLK Playformance Camp

January 13th, 2015 · Comments Off

Remember, kids don’t have school this coming Monday, January 19th!

But lots of parents have to work, and even if we don’t, we might want our kids to have a special day of play.

The kids can have a blast and we can go to a movie/do a major house cleaning project (eh)/have a date-day.

As I’ve said before, my kids would rather go to Playformance than anywhere else!

Check out the details here.

Tucson Families–tomorrow you can help make Tucson more walkable!

January 8th, 2015 · Comments Off


This is our last chance at funding a walkable region!
For the last three years, Living Streets Alliance, along with a coalition of over 30 neighborhoods, organizations, and businesses, has worked on a Pedestrian Safety & Comfort campaign to address the need for better walking conditions in the greater Tucson region. Tomorrow morning represents a major opportunity to do just that; the Pima County Bond Advisory Committee will make their final recommendation on whether or not to include $25 million in pedestrian improvements in the next bond election.

YOUR presence will affect their decision!

Help us pack the room to show that there’s broad community support for a walkable region. We’ll have ample, free bike parking available and provide you with a neon pedestrian pin to wear in show of support as you come in the door.

All you have to do is show up! (See details below.) Or, if you feel compelled, you can also fill out a speaker card as you enter the meeting and have the chance to speak directly to the committee for one minute during the “call to audience”.

To find out more about what’s being proposed, visit our Pedestrian Safety & Comfort Bond Proposal page. Meantime, please bring your friends, family, coworkers and help us spread the word via our Facebook event page.

This opportunity will not present itself again
for decades.

Let’s not miss our chance to create the walkable region that we want now! Thank you in advance for your support and resolve to create a community that’s safe and accessible for everyone. We’ll see you tomorrow morning, bright and early!
