As you probably already know, fellow juice lovers, Stripp’d Juice has a second location in the works (they opened their first outpost in Old City in 2015), and it’s going to look a bit different than their first.
If you were just daydreaming about a cold-pressed juice that so does not fit into your strict new-year-new-financially-responsible-me budget (same), I come bearing good news: The folks at the healthy grab-and-go spot Snap Kitchen, which has seven Philly-area locations, just launched an app that allows you to order your food ahead of time, guaranteeing that you snag your favorite items before others scoop ’em up, and pick up later in the day. AND, here’s where your daydreams come true: If you order $10 worth of food using the app (you’ll find it here) today, Tuesday, January 3rd, you’ll get a cold-pressed juice to wash it all down with, on them. Mmmmm.
As I type this, I am washing down my third dose of sinus medication for the day with a swig of turmeric and cayenne-loaded citrus juice, trying my best to convince myself that I do not feel like garbage. It’s not working. Because I do feel like garbage. And I am 97 percent certain that the only time in the near future that I will not feel like garbage will be when I am eating one of the items on the below list: Some of my and my coworkers’ favorite sick foods from around Philly.
Last year, we gave you guys a list of our 15 go-to sick foods around the city, and when I stopped being able to breathe through my nose earlier this week, I referred back to it. It’s a great list, if I do say so myself (check it out here), but I realized I had more to add. So here you go. Read up, then bookmark this list for the next time you come down with a cold. You can thank us later.
The folks at Old City’s Stripp’d Juice are celebrating their shop’s one year anniversary this Sunday, November 6th, and instead of taking gifts, they’re giving them: From 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, they’ll be doling out free immunity shots for all, and they’ll have all sorts of snacks out for anniversary party attendees (chipotle guac toast, anyone?), plus a photo booth. Oh! And juice will be on sale — all juices will be buy one, get one half off during the party. Yes, please!
UPDATE 6/28: The date for this event has been moved to Thursday, June 30th, due to weather.
As you know, we LOVE us some outdoor yoga, so when we heard about this 60-minute free session at Rittenhouse Square next week, we couldn’t help but squeal. Listen to this: The class, put on by The Rittenhouse Spa & Club, will be held on Tuesday, June 28th at 6 p.m. — and it ends with boozy green juice and chair massages. Yassss.

Yesterday, West Philly Local noted that the location that, back in October, was announced as a new storefront for Gangster Vegan Organics, a Norristown-based shop all about plant-based food and juice, seemed to available to lease now. Meaning … no more Gangster Vegan planned for 4305 Locust Street?
We reached out to Gangster Vegan owner Vinny DePaul to see what was going on with the West Philly location and we found out that, one, he’s still planning on setting up shop in West Philly — just not on Locust Street — and two, there’s a whole lot more in the works for Gangster Vegan this year, too.

Honestly, nothing really beats a hip-hop yoga class: You stretch it out, get a nice sweat in AND jam out, all at once. But you know what adds some icing to the hip-hop yoga class cake? When the proceeds from the class goes towards BRIDGE, a local program that empowers young students through writing and yoga. Read more »
• I feel like I’ve said this a billion times only to have the weather gods turn their backs on me, but here goes: It’s FINALLY warm outside. This means juice bars are probably in your near future, so here’s a question: Is it better to reach for a smoothie or a juice? A dietitian weighs in. [Health] Read more »
Time to add another birthday to your calendar: Sip-N-Glo, juice shop beloved by all, is turning three next week — and unlike most birthday parties you’ve been to, you’ll be the one receiving the gifts. To celebrate another year, the juicery is hosting their annual free juice day on Wednesday, May 11th, serving up 10-ounce pours of two fan favorites: Radiant Glo (So. Much. Yum.) and Pineapple Charcoal Lemon-Aid (you might remember this guy from “The Best Thing I Ever Ate in Philly: Juice Edition“). So go ahead, mark your calendars.
