I recently brought my preschooler to Open Studio at the incredibly casual, cool and inspired downtown Darien location of JAM, and we both LOVED it. In addition to offering a flexible, pay-per-visit, ‘open’ option for indoor fun, the people who work there are easy-going lovers of both art and children, and the environment – a big loft-like space with paint-splattered floors, musical instruments hanging from the walls and expansive supplies for creating anything under the sun – offers artistic inspiration to visitors of all ages.
…. and we actually WERE — kids and parents — at a birthday party in a candy shop! Chunky Pam’s is a sweet little candy store in the shopping plaza across from the Darien Playhouse, and was a perfect location for a birthday party for 12 preschoolers. I might have even enjoyed it MORE than my 3 year old, but we definitely all had a blast …! P.S. the word on the street is that the name, Chunky Pam’s, was inspired by the owner’s chunky bulldog Pam. Can anyone confirm or deny?
