New Vibe Yoga: New Vibe Yoga, located at 9 Saint Marks Place, is just what you need after a long week! Set in a very unique location, this studio is for long time yogis or beginners alike to find their daily dose of zen. The 2-floor studio, complete with an outdoor garden, outdoor shower, and infrared sauna, offers traditional Ashtanga classes with one-on-one instruction or LED (guided group classes) around the clock, 7 days a week. Perfect for a warm or cool day, New Vibe Yoga also boasts 5 skylights, 2 wood burning fireplaces, a full kitchen, and 2 full bathrooms. The studio occupies the top 2 full floors of their loft and are completed by palm, lemon, fig, and avocado trees in every direction! Ashtanga yoga, for those who may not know (we definitely didn’t!), is basically like your typical Vinyasa flow, with more repetitive movements. The class gave our bodies a great stretch but also set our mind free to prepare for a great weekend ahead.
The Museum Of Pizza: PIZZA… known as one of @yourweekendplans essential food groups, is recognized universally as always being there for us whether we’re hungry, happy, hurried, or hungover. That’s why it’s time to celebrate our favorite food in all its glory! That won’t be hard, since the #MoPi, formally known as the Museum Of Pizza, is opening their doors THIS Saturday! Not only is it a place to take amazing photos and absorb every wonder of the larger-than-life, immersive installations, it’s also a space to bask in multi-sensory, psychedelic pizza bliss! A portion of every ticket purchased will be donated to provide a free meal for a family in need and every ticket holder is entitled to one free slice at or outside the venue! The Museum of Pizza is located at The William Vale and with the promo code WEEKENDPLANS, you’ll receive a $5 discount off your ticket purchase here. Who’s joining us!?
Mister Dips Block Party: Just steps away from The Museum Of Pizza, The William Vale has another event up their sleeves… the second-annual Mister Dips block party! This Saturday from 12-5pm, you can attend this completely FREE event which will have drinks courtesy of All-Wise Meadery, bites from Du's Donuts, and your Mister Dips favorites! We seriously can’t think of a better way to cap off our pizza celebration than with a Mister Dips signature ice cream cone. Feeling full already? The block party will also have a dunk tank, cornhole, face painting, live performances, cotton candy, and raffles! The biggest prize includes an all inclusive 1 night stay at The William Vale - sign us up for this staycation ASAP!
Gitano: Gitano, a literal concrete jungle, is the newest form of paradise set smack in the middle of downtown Tribeca. Most well-known for their Tulum location, Group Gitano set this pop-up mezcal bar in a 24K square foot tropical garden with a backdrop of the Freedom Tower and downtown NYC skyline from all angles. Take a mini trip over the border by ordering up their Mexican inspired plates and drinks (we would stick with the simple items!) like the pumpkin seed guacamole or the grilled avocado accompanied by any of their top notch margaritas! All of the decor was actually created, built, and flown in from Tulum, including their lush plants and sandy floors, making us believe we were actually on a getaway vacation. Gitano will be open until the end of October, or as long as this unseasonably warm weather lasts, so make sure to add this into your calendar sooner rather than later!
Human’s Best Friend: Are you a dog owner, dog lover, or just all-around animal enthusiast? Well then, this part of our plan is for you! Human’s Best Friend, a recently opened pop-up for dogs AND humans alike, is a shareable experience for you and your four-legged bestie! Created to celebrate all things dog, Human’s Best Friend allows you to travel through a series of technicolor environments that will guarantee to get everyone’s tails wagging! The canine-centric world is great for your pup, complete with a giant ball pit and treat bar, but also great if you’re in the market for a new bud. Human’s Best Friend features adoptable dogs available to play with in partnership with dozens of local rescue organizations. 10% of all profits will directly benefit the participating rescue organizations. Speaking on behalf of @simonsays_wooof, this place was paws-itively the BEST!
Toby’s Estate Cupping Class: Toby’s Estate Coffee, just a 4-minute walk from Human’s Best Friend, is the perfect next stop to treat yourself to some caffeine post cuteness! This West Village location is one of our favorites to begin with, but Toby’s also now features a #BrewSchool every Saturday and Sunday from 1:30-2:30pm in both the Williamsburg and West Village locations. The Public Cupping class is easy to sign up for and is perfect for coffee lovers. A Toby’s Educator guides you through a variety of single-origin offerings from around the world as you smell, taste, and get familiar with some of the most unique flavors we have ever seen! Prepare to learn the history and practices of cupping in a full sensory experience and leave with a deeper understanding on just what goes down behind the scenes of your morning latte.
