The goody bags are all packed, the raffle items are ready to go, and I’m looking forward to bringing the kids to one of my favorite spots — Java Mama — for the Hullabaloo concert, sponsored by Plum District.
When Java Mama in La Mesa first opened, Mallory was not even one, and Hullabaloo played at the grand opening event. I felt so lucky to have a place we could visit for a free story time or dance party, where I could get a great cup of coffee, enjoy the Wi-Fi and watch my daughter toddle around the supervised play area. A coffee shop that actually offered a changing station was a nice change of pace. (Have you ever seen one at Starbucks?!)
We were bummed when Java Mama in La Mesa closed, but the Scripps Ranch location offers more room and an outdoor playground, and I really like the owner, Virginia, who is also the mom of two young children.
Steve with Hullabaloo is awesome with kids and, of course, his songs are great too. He performed at Gage’s 2nd birthday party and appears regularly on the Parent Connection‘s calendar of events. We own several Hullabaloo CDs, but their DVD is the best!
Plum District is expanding across San Diego county, “bringing daily deals to savvy moms.” And, in the case of the Java Mama event, Plum District is bringing one great big deal in the form of a free concert, goody bags and several raffle prizes including a $100 Target gift card, a Stone Flats gift card, the most adorable Lil’ Sugarplum barrettes, one month of classes at Gymboree, Ultrastar movie tickets, and dinner and game tokens for four at Chuck E. Cheese’s (have you tried their new pizza recipe yet??).
Thank you to our sponsors who contributed goodies to our gift bags including a free kid’s haircut by Supercuts of Scripps Ranch, a free combo upgrade at Stone Flats, free sodas, churros and chips and guacamole from Rubio’s, and an awesome 15 meal for $59 Dinner Studio coupon. (Did you know they deliver anywhere for only $5?)
