Here are some of the many features that you're going to enjoy at The Family Savvy
: This Month
is our carefully curated list of the events that we think are key to each age-group this month, and is segmented into Elementary, Middle-School, Teens and Adults. We have some great ideas to help you celebrate The Year of the Dragon, and information about a free screening tomorrow of a film called City Lax
about inner-city kids in Denver learning the sport of lacrosse. Destinations
is a list of what's going on for families at all the major cultural institutions around town, right now. You'll want to check out The Annenberg's fabulous new show, Digital Darkroom. By Age
is where you will find featured exhibits and events archived by ages. Here you'll find our review of one of last year's best films, Hugo
. (And, we finally saw The Artist
and think it is must-see, as well). Extras
are features that we hope you'll find interesting. We'll post ticket offers, introduce you to members of our community in the Subscriber Profile
(parents like you who are dealing with life in LA and have professional or personal expertise that you'll find helpful), share articles we think are important from other major periodicals (look for Clip and Share
), and cover general issues of interest to our community. Finally, we have created a Blog
which will both reflect on our point-of-view and share the views of other savvy parents and institutions around town.
