Have kids ages 0-8? Then you are cordially invited to a Winter Family Fun day at the Andrew Peabody School in North Cambridge. For active kids, there will be games like giant basketball and a moon bounce, and quieter, calmer kids can enjoy face painting, book giveaways and lots of arts and crafts. Grab your little guys and get out of the house!

Sunday, 1/25
New brunch menu
11 a.m., Price varies
The Sinclair
52 Church St.
The Sinclair is often lauded for bringing great music right to the heart of Harvard Square, and they should be! But don’t forget: the spot is also responsible for some super delicious dining. This weekend, they’re kicking off a brand new brunch that includes treats like a Philly cheesesteak omelet, a waffle burger and brunch fries with chicken gravy, jalapeños and cheddar cheese. It looks awesome. (And don’t worry, a little hair of the dog is always on the brunch menu.)
