This Week in Wellness: Obama at ABC Kitchen, Wanderlust at home, and more
Welcome to our weekly roundup of wellness news we’ve spotted and reported throughout the week. Our Page Six!
Presidential dining. According to The Daily News, the leader of the free world is taking a cue from his veggie-loving wife for his next fundraiser. Obama’s soiree will be at amazing farm-to-table hotspot, ABC Kitchen, on March 1, and the guest list will include healthy-living gurus like Deepak Chopra and Russell Simmons. Dear Mr. President, when will Well+Good’s invitation arrive?
Wanderlust at home. From now on, you won’t have to wander very far to experience the popular festival. Online-streaming site YogaVibes announced this week that classes from the festival will now be posted on their site. But will the cameras circling yogis at the escape-from-it-all outdoor festivals be a buzz kill for attendees?
Macrobiotic movement. M Cafe, a chic LA health-food restaurant (headed up by Gwyneth’s former personal chef) and a fave of celebs like Orlando Bloom and Reese Witherspoon, is bringing its macrobiotic meals to New York. If only they weren’t packaged.
Golden nails. This weekend, celebs prepping for the Grammy red carpet will get a bling-tastic manicure—with 24K gold nail polish. Seriously. Sounds swanky, but we’ve got to ask: Is it 3-free?
Savoy savior. For those who mourned the loss of Savoy last year, rejoice! Peter Hoffman announced he’s opening an extension of his other popular locally-sourced restaurant, Back Forty West, in the same space in just a few weeks. We just have a problem with the name, since the location is east of Broadway. May we suggest calling it Back Forty Soho? (And having us in ASAP?)
