How are those New Year’s resolutions coming along? Whether they’re going strong or you’ve thrown them out the window, you still deserve to have fun and treat yourself, in our humble opinion. This week we’re looking forward to lots of yoga, some bridal inspiration, great brunch (as usual), and even a three-day weekend! Happy second week of 2018, Bitches. You’re doing great! Keep reading for this week’s agenda…
Monday’s are almost always stressful, but thanks to Artists & Fleas and BigToe Yoga, you can kick off this week a little calmer than usual. Tonight at Artists & Fleas’ SoHo location, you can help kick off a new pop-up yoga series with a free meditation class taught by a BigToe Yoga instructor. After class, indulge in some retail therapy by browsing the many vendors at the cool collective retail space. Class is from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and you can register here. 568 Broadway, New York, NY
We love culinary collaborations, especially those involving macaroni and cheese. That’s why we’re so excited about fresh&co’s collaboration with Beecher’s Handmade Cheese. Beginning today, you can stop by any of NYC’s 15 fresh&co locations to indulge in a special-edition super-cheesy mac and cheese dish. This decadent dish is crafted with Beecher’s flagship cheddar cheese curds, and you have the option to add a savory helping of thick-cut bacon and spicy maple syrup as well.

It’s time for the annual Burton Girls Night Out! Stop by the snowboarding brand’s NYC flagship at 6 p.m. for an evening of how-tos, special guests, drinks, snacks, prizes, and gift bags.

With Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, many of us New Yorkers will soon be enjoying a long weekend, which means an excuse for a mini vacation from the concrete jungle. If you’re in need of a weekend getaway too, we suggest southern Vermont. This location is just a quick drive from NYC and is the perfect cold-weather destination with plenty to see and do. We recently spent a weekend in the area and created this detailed guide full of places to stay, eat, and adventure.
Before you head off to brunch today, head to the Brooklyn Museum from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for a morning of art and yoga with Adidas. Your $10 ticket gets you access to an hour-long yoga and meditation session led by local instructors, plus admission to the museum to explore its various galleries and exhibits. Yoga mats are provided, so all you need to do is show up! 200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY
Looking to step outside the traditional brunch box and try something new? We’re loving aRoqa, a contemporary Indian spot whose brunch dishes are flavorful and playfully presented.
