MIDTOWN EAST—Soulcycle is introducing its new studio at 240 East 54th Street to the neighborhood this weekend with complimentary post-workout juices and coffee and snacks provided by Brooklyn Diamond Coffee, which is opening its own outpost next door later on this month. Sign up for any class between 9am and 1pm for your freebies, and bring the kids, too — there'll be a photo booth and balloon animals.
UNION SQUARE—Join in on the first-ever open house at Revolve Fitness (52 E 13th St) this Saturday, October 10th. Make sure to show up in something you wouldn't mind getting sweaty because from 2pm to 6pm, there will be free 30-minute cycling rides that are great for both new riders and returning clients looking to improve form and technique. After getting your heart rate up, try your luck in a raffle, shop the in-house trunk show, nosh on some free snacks, and even get a chair massage.
WEST VILLAGE—Pop into Cap Beauty this Sunday from 5pm to 7pm to find chocolate company Zen Bunni and skincare line Sun Potion at 238 W 10th St for a guided meditation, DIY face masks, and (of course) some chocolate tastings. Just send a RSVP to email@example.com to secure your spot.
