Anyone who’s ever tried to do the gallery rounds with a child in tow knows the perils: dirty looks from patrons, the threat that a child will decide to “play” with an exhibit, etc. That’s why it’s a relief to know of at least one space, ATLANTA CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER, where children won’t be met with refrigerator chilliness or be bored out of their skulls. There’s always been a friendly, come-one-come-all vibe at the center. And it boasts the added advantage of a spacious layout so kids don’t feel trapped, while their adult companions can talk and mingle without fear of their child toppling artwork.

Philips Arena serves a dual purpose for CL's readers: Not only do the adults like going to watch their home teams lose, but apparently their kids enjoy it, too. While the Hawks are getting thrashed and the Thrashers get hawked, the Philips Experience provides an interactive playground for the young 'uns, allowing them to practice their jump-shot or try playing goalie. And if all else fails, there's always the $4 hot dogs. less...
