Introducing The World's First Ice Cream Cleanse

We are all familiar with the concept of a juice cleanse. For a few days your diet is restricted to pre-made juices in hopes they will clean out your system and enable you to lose a few pounds along the way. Well, what about the concept of an ice cream cleanse? It sounds too good to be true, but it's actually completely legitimate — and the tests are yielding some very interesting results.

Ice cream has been a “hot” commodity as far as food trends of 2014 go. Ice cream sandwiches have taken over as the new “portable dessert” (bye-bye donuts!), and “instant ice cream,” which is churned using liquid nitrogen, has become the latest experiment in restaurants all across the country. Therefore, it’s only natural that someone would jump onto the health-food bandwagon and figure out exactly how eating ice cream can benefit our bodies. Enter Kippy’s! Ice Cream Shop, located at 326 Lincoln Blvd., Venice, California, which is serving up a four-day ice cream and yoga cleanse (in a partnership with their neighboring yoga studio) which has yielded serious weight loss and stamina-related results!

Verboten Grand Opening This Weekend

Verboten translates to “forbidden” in German, but the opening of a new club of the same name in Williamsburg is by no means as restrictive as the name would suggest. It is in fact, the exact opposite. It's like the Garden of Eden, a paradise full of everything you could ever want from a nightlife, music, and arts venue, and nothing is off limits. This Friday and Saturday, March 14th and 15th, Verboten hosts the grand opening of its purpose-built venue and invites you to come try some of forbidden food and drinks, you won't regret it.

Inspirations and Collaborations

Flexibility? Maybe. (Bending over to turn tables doesn't exactly equate to touching your toes.)

Dexterity? Definitely.

Introducing Eric Harary, a producer and DJ who's sounds are making quite a chant around the city. Praised by the likes of Danny Tenaglia, Eric has been the opening and closing act for legendary big-room DJs such as Boris and Victor Calderone.
