Welcome to a new feature on OMG New York. This is an attempt to provide you with cool awesome stuff that takes place in out fair city. Sure, you could go elsewhere for this news, but why trawl through TimeOut, or get ‘out cooled’ by The Voice when you can find great things here, all in a fab accessible manner. Well, that’s how I see it anyways.
Without further waffle, lets get down to business.

GROOVEHOOPS, Hula Hoop Skills Class
Time: 8pm – 9:15 pm
Where: 14th Street Y, 344 East 14th St & 1st Ave
Cost: $12, hoops provided
A seriously fun way to spend an hour. Learn to jiggle, spin and throw the hoop around, and it’s fine if you drop it and have to run after it. Class is friendly and of mixed ability and instructor Stefan is super enthusiastic, happy t teach you if you haven’t hooped since you were five. You’ll give your waist a workout and leave with a new trick move, be it throwing and catching, or spinning a hoop around your ankle.

Located on the actual Hudson river, why not take in the view with a brew? Its finally warmed up enough to sit outside now, and this is a lovely way to do it. Sometimes you’ll get live music, but you’ll always have a good time. Beer on tap, and they serve vodka and white sangria.
