Giving up booze this January? Yeah. Me, you and Bridget Jones too. But it can be tough and isolating since most adult activities always seems to result in a beverage in hand. But fear not. After many dry Januarys (and February and March...did I mention I'm not a big drinker?!) acting like a hermit, we've decided to scout around for fun activities that don't require a glass of champs.
1. Switch Playground: AKA club sweat where the beats are sweet and the moves are no joke. This epic workout is done with a partner, so grab your fitness bestie, your sneakers and a big ole bottle of H20 and get set to sweat. The live DJ and club-like atmosphere will make you forget you're torching nearly 600 kcals and not dancing table-top at your fave locale.
2. Central Park Winter Jam: Not sure about you, but if I can't be curled up with an adult-bevy, then I'm letting my hair down and my inner child loose. Mark your calendars for January 28th and come to Central Park's Bandshell for ice skating, sledding, snowboarding and food from local vendors.
3. Grab a Mocktail: The Nomad Bar is by far and away my fave place to get a mocktail. If you're use to a boring old dirty shirley, you'll be delighted by the range of flavors and complex combinations that will delight the senses and make your forget you're sally sober.
4. Take A Cooking Class: Less drink usually means more food. So, satisfy your tastebuds and your waistline why not try a healthy (and delish) cooking class! Check out the Natural Gourmet Institute for delectable vegan desserts, healthy breakfasts, vegan burgers and pizza, oh my! You can even plan your very own dry January event there.
