When my girls were toddlers, Sundays during the winter made me feel like Jack Nicholson in "The Shining": Snowbound, irritable and slightly psychotic. Then we discovered the Beat Kitchen's concert series for kids and it gave us a respite from the playroom to hang out with other families equally thrilled to have stumbled upon an entertaining indoor Sunday activity.

Local bands like the rockabilly-inspired Deep Fried Pickle Project and Mr. Dave and the Space Cadets, which has a slightly punk rock vibe, groove on stage while kids strut their stuff on the dance floor and parents actually can relax a bit-some with the $6 day-friendly cocktails like mimosas or Bloody Marys.

Shows start at noon and many concert-goers choose to partake in the Beat Kitchen's tasty and hearty brunch, served 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m. The French toast with caramelized banana and maple pecan butter or the grilled cheese-imported Gruyere on thick-cut bread served with creamy tomato-basil soup-are perfect choices for a frigid day.

The tickets are $6. It's wise to buy them online in advance since they do sell out.
