Best Place to Take the Kids 

Red Tractor

After a day at Tilden Park watching the geese honk and the horses neigh, load the kids into the back of your wagon and rumble down to College for the closest you can get around here to a meal in a barn. With prices in the $6 to $8 range, you won't have to raid your children's college fund to do it, either. Kids love Red Tractor because they can order a PB&J if they're not in the mood for adult stuff; they can color on the tractor placemats -- and for a couple of bucks, they can buy a miniature red tractor and plow a few rows on the table. Adults like the simple, healthy food made fresh every day, and can pretend that the reason they're ordering one of those massive Rice Krispie treats is that "the kids love them so much."
