Okinawan Pop Band Halloween Costume Advice

HalloweenCostumeFilter: My band has a gig on Halloween in the East Village of NYC. Can you help me complete my costume? I can't use my hands, because of the instrument I play. I usually wear a black suit, bowtie, and bowler hat, and I am looking for minimal detail that can be added to make a quickly and commonly identified costume. Last year I wore some terminator makeup on my head and that was enough. Any recommendations?

Where can grown-ups and toddlers hang out together in New York?

Where can adults and kids hang out together in New York? We're visiting New York, where we used to live, for a weekend. We want to arrange an informal gathering so we can see all our friends. Last time we did this, we held it at Bar Veloce in Chelsea, which was perfect. But that was before we, and many of our friends, had small children. What's a pleasant place to meet in Manhattan where 25 or so adults, many accompanied by babies and toddlers, can hang out for a Sunday evening, talk, get drinks and something to eat, and not worry that our kids are going to destroy something?

Fun places/ways to get a workout in NYC?

I'm a young woman in New York City, looking for a way to get in shape. (I'm not grossly out of shape now, but a year at a sedentary office job has taken a toll.) Running got boring. I've done the gym thing before and it's fine, but I'd like to find something new to get into: yoga, a martial art, a form of dance, kick-boxing. I'm open. I'd like to find a good place (a really homey yoga or martial arts studio, for example), in lower Manhattan (within the ambit of Union Square would be great) or possibly Williamsburg. Any suggestions on activities and/or places?
