Sweat Before You Stuff Your Face: Outdoor Yoga Coming to Night Market

For the past five years, Night Market, the Food Trust’s festival that pops up in different neighborhoods throughout the warmer months, has been all about stuffing your face. I mean, there’s usually so much to choose from, how could you not? But this year, they’ve worked in some food for the soul (their words, not mine): To kick off Night Market season, which will start in Roxborough this time around, there will be a Night Market yoga class. So you can at least get your sweat on before you eat your weight in pizza and ice cream and samosas and whatever else you can get your hands on. AMEN to that. Read more »

Lately, the weather has been like a flaky Tinder date. One minute, it’s sunny and warm and the next, it’s cold and isn’t answering your texts. Okay, maybe the ghosting-on-texts part doesn’t apply, but the cold definitely does. This week alone, the temperatures are supposed to flip-flop between the 40s and the 70s.

But the first day of spring is just 13 days away (!!), which means that temperamental weather should soon — hopefully! — be a thing of the past, with warm temps here to stay through September or so. Below, 13 reasons we can’t freakin’ wait for warm weather in Philly. If you’ve got reasons to add, list ‘em off in the comments! Read more »
