Northshire Bookstore’s Father’s Day Picks

Jennifer Armstrong, bookseller extraordinaire from Northshire Bookstore on Broadway in Saratoga (our area’s top independent bookstore) is on Mamatoga today with some last minute book ideas perfect for the dad in your life.

indexFor the first time dad: Jimmy Fallon’s new book, “Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada,” is just as charming as he is.  The text is refreshingly simple (no ham-handed attempt to instill a lesson, thank goodness) and the art is cheerful and fun.  This is a perfect first Father’s Day book.

Not his first Father’s Day?  How about How to Surprise a Dad, by the best-selling team (Jean Reagan and Lee Wildish) that brought you How to Baby-Sit a Grandma and How to Baby-Sit a Grandpa.  Full of funny advice for mischievous kids.  Dads: just pretend you don’t see them sneaking up behind from behind.  Play along.

Dads of school-aged kids may appreciate Made by Dad: 67 Blueprints for Making Cool Stuff, a book of projects to do with the kids that will get them all away from their screens and into full-on tinker mode.  It’s fun, funny, and even somewhat ingenious.

Pop into Northshire to pick up these great picks just in time for Father’s Day!

Mamatoga Supper Club Menu: Monday, June 22nd at Druthers at McGregor Links

mamatogamenuI am super excited for the menu for the upcoming Mamatoga Supper Club at McGregor Links on Monday, June 22nd because they are featuring my favorite dish, the Tabbouleh Chopped Salad! I’ve had it about twenty times since they’ve opened and it is THE BEST SALAD of the summer I can’t tell you enough how amazing it is. Plus, you can get it gluten free, with chicken or steak (or vegetarian of course).

Come join us on Monday for the third Mamatoga Supper Club where you can meet other local moms, chat and make new friends, peruse the Pop Up Shop from The Bundle Store featuring some great summer products (like my new favorite sunscreen for the whole family and these adorable blankets) and just relax and have a delicious (uninterrupted) supper.

This Supper Club is a casual, informal group, plenty of moms come by themselves without knowing anyone else, and we all have name tags and mingle and meet one another. It’s simply an opportunity to get out, meet some other moms from the area, and spend a fun night together. And this time, you’ll get a chance to check out the brand new Druthers at McGregor Links!

We’re going to have a happy hour/mingle and meet time from 6:30-7:30 with the dinner starting at 7:30. Just $25 per person, the dinner will be three courses with coffee, tea and soft drinks included (wine, beer, etc. can also be purchased with some drink specials as well). There are only a few spots still left, email me at today to RSVP!

The Stages of Summer Laundry

DON’T WISH FOR IT_WORK FOR IT(1)Summertime is almost here, hurrah! Life will be so much easier without the school schedule, packing those lunches, needing to get the kids off to the bus stop on time, right? RIGHT?

The answer is, yes and no. Yes lunch can turn into just eating watermelon outside with ice pops for dessert, impromptu barbecues without needing to make sure you have all the requested lunchbox components. Yes the schedule can be somewhat more relaxed without worrying about missing the bus and having to chase it down to the next stop waving your arms and yelling like a crazy person while still wearing your pajama pants. The big no?
