Grab your yoga mat and a date for this new Thursday night happy hour.
Miami Beach's Craft Social Club is introducing "No Shower Happy Hour" on Thursday, November 17.
It's not asking patrons to avoid showering before attending, but rather to get a little sweaty before drinking. The happy hour starts at 6:30 p.m., allowing guests time to arrive, set up their mats and mingle before a 7 p.m. yoga session.
JetSet Miami Pilates instructors Jenna Guadagni and Elisa Miller lead the energetic hour-long class that combines vinyasa yoga with light weights and an ab workout, all while staying true to Craft Social Club's cool vibe, playing hip-hop. This class is challenging without being overbearing or intimidating.
Guidagni and Miller hope "No Shower Happy Hour" becomes the spot to bring a date or find one.
"I think when you go to a fitness studio ... I've seen a lot of cute guys that I maybe wanted to talk to or seen some cute guys looking at me who maybe wanted to talk to me and ask me out ... but it's just an awkward setting," Guadagni explains, "So our idea was to put something together where you could get a workout in [and] meet people with the same kind of common interest."
Guadagni says Craft Social Club's space allows this idea to flourish in a social setting, where people don't have to be self-conscious about being sweaty post-workout and can enjoy a drink or two with their date or someone they've just met.
After the yoga session, cool down with a free health-inspired Craft Social Club cocktail, such as the Sun Salutation with Grey Goose, watermelon, grapefruit cordial, black peppermint and Stevia leaf or the Tailbone Angel with Exotico tequila, cucumber-infused coconut water, green tea syrup, lime juice, citrus biters and sea salt.
"No Shower Happy Hour" will start 6:30 p.m. every other Thursday, at Craft Social Club, 100 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $39, and can be purchased through the "NoShowerHappyHourMia" on Facebook. Call 919-768-3800.
