Remember Books and Cookies, that sort of Giggles N' Hugs for the cerebral toddler that was supposed to open in winter? The Main Street Santa Monica storefront, a partnership between a children's author and a New York caterer, finally announces an opening date of Monday, May 16th, allowing your yard-apes to get their hands gooey with cookie crumbs and healthy snacks before they go pawing through a collection of books for sale. You never know, tempting-through-cookies may turn out to be the only method you have to get little Tristan reading anything not glowing off of a screen these days. [Books and Cookies]
