The best way to pre-game an
all-day after-work drinking binge in the name of the Irish? Burning calories at the barre beforehand. Physique 57's Barre Crawl—where brave souls endure back-to-back classes at each of the studio's three New York City locations as a healthy St. Patrick's Day alternative—is taking place this Saturday and Sunday starting at 1pm, and there's a few spots left in each session if you're feeling up to the challenge.
A $90 admission fee not only gets you the three classes, but also a themed green-sparkly headband, Kind bars and Juice Press beverages in between sessions, an eyelash application at Rouge NY, and an "I Survived My First Barre Crawl" tee as proof of your hard work. Want to know what you're getting yourself into before signing up? Check out one editor's account of last year's crawl.
