The new Pike & Rose neighborhood in North Bethesda has become a go-to spot for shopping, dining and entertainment for my family. It is such a bright and happy area along  Rockville Pike and as a bonus for us, it’s only 4 miles from our house. I absolutely dread going to the Mall. It takes forever to find a parking spot and then you have to waste more time getting to where you need to go inside the Mall and fighting crowds on top of that….no thank you! I find Pike & Rose to be stress-free starting with the garage parking – it’s convenient and the first two hours are free.

Dining

I first discovered Pike & Rose when my husband and I were looking for new restaurants for date night. It’s always fun and interesting to try new places. First we had a great meal at Summer House – it’s a must! I love the vibe and the food is fantastic. We have also gone back for other dates at City Perch and Del Frisco’s Grille. When our girls are dining with us we like to eat at either &pizza, Chipotle, or Roti. And for a sweet treat – froyo at Tutti Fruitti is always a good choice!

Shopping

Not only do I love the dining options but the shopping is top notch too! I was so happy once I found out there was a Gap at Pike & Rose. This means no more dreaded trips to the mall for my family’s wardrobe essentials. I purchased a lot of back-to-school clothes for my girls at the Gap Kids because they are priced well, cute, trendy, and durable. I also get a lot of the classics like denim, khakis, and t-shirts for my husband and I at the Gap. And their workout clothes are great too!

Yogaso is my go-to store for the truly unique and special clothes for my girls. They sell clothing and toys from around the world. You can get things here that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s a great place to purchase outfits for those special occasions like the first day of school, birthdays, family photos, or holidays. I picked out an adorable Petite Lucette top and skirt for Mae’s first day of pre-school. She loved it and begged to wear it again on the second day of school!

In addition to the Gap and Yogaso, there is also a brand new Nike Factory store, Francesca’s, and Lucky Brand store. There is also a Season’s Olive Oil and Vinegar Taproom that is perfect for anyone who loves to cook. And also a great place to purchase gifts.

Entertainment & Events

The iPic theater at Pike & Rose is definitely the coolest theater in our area! My girls thought it was so special to have a reclining seat with a pillow and blanket. And the free popcorn delivered right to their seats was an added bonus!

ipic-1-of-1

Pike & Rose also holds special events throughout the year and we are big fans of their PIKEkids series. The kids events are held on the last Saturday of each month for ages 12 and under. They are usually free but require an RSVP to reserve a spot. Stay up-to-date on all the events here.

At one PIKEkids event this summer my girls had fun creating edible art at Seasons Taproom. The kids used fresh berries, edible flowers, freeze dried fruit and Seasons Balsamic Vinegars to make their own edible creations!

At another fun PIKEkids event this summer, we enjoyed an Instrument Petting Zoo and a performance by the band, Here Comes Trouble at AMP powered by Strathmore.

Pike & Rose’s third annual Piketoberfest is coming up on October 8th from 1-4pm. It is free to attend. There will be a craft beer tent, lawn games, and lots of kids activities.

Mary Poppins – Encore Stage & Studio

 Encore Stage & Studio
125 S Old Glebe Road
Arlington, VA 22204
www.encorestageva.org
 

We have been to many Encore Stage & Studio shows in the past but Mary Poppins was the first show we saw that incorporated professional adult performers. This show had a different feel since the adults were played by actual adults! It is definitely at the top of my list as one of my favorites by Encore. Everything about it was Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

 

Mary Poppins is a practically perfect, spoonful of sugar nanny that unexpectedly arrives in the Banks household one blustery day. Using lessons disguised as games, she helps to teach the Banks children how to be their best selves. But, is Mary Poppins’ magic enough to save this family from drifting apart? Enjoy your favorite Disney melodies and watch Mary Poppins soar across the stage in this Broadway adaptation that won seven TONY awards, including Best Musical.

SupercaliPhoto by Larry McClemons.

One thing my daughter and I loved about this performance is that Mary (played by 23-year-old Kaely Clapper) actually flew across the stage several times using cables. And Bert even did a few flips mid-air during “Step in Time”. There were a lot of talented actors with great vocals. The set in Mary Poppins was also quite impressive compared to their other shows.

Encore Stage & Studio should be super proud of this performance! And it turns out this was their highest attended summer production since 2007 (with High School Musical!) at over 3400 patrons! Bravo Encore!

Mary Poppins has ended but make sure to catch the next show at Encore this fall – The Best Haunted House Ever, October 14-23.

Good to Know:

•The show is recommended for ages 6 and older. However, my  5 year old absolutely loved the show.
•Ticket prices: $15 adults, $10 children, students, seniors, and military.
•The show lasts approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.
•Concessions can be purchased and enjoyed in the lobby before the show and during intermission.
•There is free and ample parking at the Thomas Jefferson Community Theatre, where all Encore productions are located.
•Encore offers a birthday party package.
•Encore also offers a variety of classes and camps.

The Little Gym

The Little Gym at Downtown Crown
116 Ellington Blvd
Gaithersburg, MD 20878
www.thelittlegym.com
 
 

My youngest daughter Mae and I recently tried the Super Beasts parent/child class at The Little Gym of Gaithersburg at Downtown Crown. It’s an understatement to say Mae enjoyed the class – she was smiling from the moment we arrived and was enthusiastically talking about how fun it was after it ended.

The class started in circle time with introductions and a hello song. Then Ms. Ally brought out the sticks and lead the group in some counting exercises and songs. There were only a few children in the class, which I thought was nice – the kids were not overwhelmed with the chaos of a large group and the instructor could give enough attention to each child.

IMG_0847

Throughout the class, the kids had some time to explore the gym on their own, while Ms. Ally set up for different skills. The children worked on their forward rolls, walking across the balance beam, and donkey kicks. At the end of class the kids all shrieked when Ms. Ally brought out the balls. And of course the bubbles were a big hit too!

IMG_0845

The Little Gym does such a great job of creating a fun program for physical development and socialization. The instructors are so energetic and bubbly and really make an effort to get to know each child. Parents can relax knowing that the gym is sparkling clean!

We also recently attended a birthday party at this location and I was impressed at how well run it was for a large group of about 25 children. Ms. Victoria and Ms. Jackie lead the kids in group activities, gave them free time to explore the gym, and brought out the tumble track for lots of jumping (Mae’s favorite part)!

IMG_0846

The Little Gym offers a great summer camp for children ages 3-12. And there is currently a Certifikid deal for half-day camp at 11 different locations in the DC area. My oldest daughter, Clara participated in the camp in previous summers and it was one of her favorites!

The Little Gym has a lot to offer – check out their variety of classes here! We couldn’t be more happy with our experience!
