Check out Be Well Philly for exactly what will be pouring.
If you haven’t checked out for the holidays just yet, add this to your agenda this week: South Street neighbors Sip-N-Glo Juicery and Supper are teaming up for a juice-and-booze-fueled happy hour on Thursday evening that you might not want to miss.
Sip-N-Glo will be bringing three juices to be used as mixers for a trifecta of very delicious and unique cocktails. The cucumber, celery, apple, mint, ginger, and spinach juice with get spiked with Hendrick’s Gin; a beet, carrot and pineapple juice shaken with unsweetened almond milk will be mixed with Bacardi rum; and the oh-so-seasonal sweet potato, apple, and pumpkin spice juice will be fused with Snap, the ginger snap spirit from Philly’s own Art in the Age.
We’re officially in the final countdown for Be Well Philly Boot Camp 2014! We’re so stinkin’ excited for this year’s lineup that we decided to get the party started early with a few free workout classes this week to get you hyped. Think of them as a sneak preview of what’s to come on Saturday.
Here’s what’s going down: On Wednesday and Thursday, Be Well Philly will be popping up in the rotunda at the Shops at Liberty Place with a few express workouts during your lunch break. Our friends at Red Hot Dance Fitness will lead a get-you-moving dance-fitness class on June 4th from noon to 12:30, and the folks from Yoga Garden will host a super fun, bring-your-own-mat yoga class from noon to 12:30 on June 5th. That’s right—you’ve got two opportunities to get your midday sweat on!
Our friends at Be Well Philly tipped us off that Sip N Glo is celebrating its first birthday by giving away twelve ounce juices today. And if you haven’t tried Sip N Glo, you really owe it to yourself to try their juices. We’ve been impressed each time we’ve had one. Sip N Glo’s giveaway goes to 4 p.m., which is convenient because that’s when Häagen-Dazs’ free cone day kicks off. So it would be possible to pardon the pun, double-dip on free stuff on South Street today. Get to Sip N Glo at 932 South Street and then stroll down to Häagen-Dazs at 242 South Street before 8 p.m. for your free ice cream.
Happy birthday to Sip N Glo! The South Street juicery is officially one year old today, and what better way to celebrate than with a free drink? Pop in today and get your choice of a free 12-ounce One Love juice, Glo Up, or, if you’re feeling adventurous, a surprise drink from their new Simple Sips line. While you sip, snap a photo and post it to any social media site with the hashtag #SipNGlo and you’ll get a chance to win a free smoothie or juice. Better yet, come in with an idea for your dream drink and you could have one named after you.
Calling all Broad Street Runners: After the race, before your rush to the nearest shower, you’re going to need to make a pitstop for some post-race fuel. And thanks to Sip-N-Glo, you don’t even have to think about where to go: The South Street juice bar has created the Broad Street Stomper Smoothie just for you.
The smoothie, packed with all sorts of deliciousness like spinach, pineapple, maca, banana, lemon, lime, cucumber, spirulina and hemp protein is designed to replenish runners’ insides after a morning spent stomping the pavement for 10 long miles. This nutrient-packed concoction will run you $7.95 and, as a bonus, Broad Street runners will get a free wheatgrass shot with their purchase—all you’ve got to do is flash your bib.
I have at least one Sip-N-Glo obsessed coworker who will be psyched to hear that the South Street juicery’s bottled juices and smoothies are now available at Di Bruno Bro.’s locations in Rittenhouse and the Franklin. Twitter proof below.
Good news, Shamrock Shake lovers—Philly’s Sip-N-Glo Juicery just debuted a healthier alternative to your Mickey D’s fave.
The Bella Vista juice cafe is now serving up a new minty smoothie just in time for St. Paddy’s day. Called the Lucky Clover, it only has five ingredients, including fresh mint leaves, raw vanilla beans, cashews, bananas and almond milk.
“But it’s not the same!” you say. I know, I know. But just in case you forgot, your good friend the Shamrock Shake isn’t doing you any favors in the calorie department, and it features a laundry list of weird ingredients, including the oh-so-green Shamrock Shake Syrup that contains color additives like Yellow 5 and Blue 1. So hey, the Lucky Clover it’s more than worth a shot, right? And who knows, you might even get lucky with this one—lame pun intended.
