The sexiest, healthiest Earth Day event ever

Earth Day NYC

We highly recommend giving back to the planet by planting a tree this Earth Day. But once you’re done digging in the dirt on April 22, you might want to head to this sexy yoga-foodie event.

Meatpacking District’s Del Posto restaurant is teaming up with urban gardening guru Annie Novak, Lucy’s Whey, and nearby luxe yoga oasis Yoga 216 to host an Earth Day evening that includes a five-course vegetarian, locavore dinner, and 108 sun salutations by candlelight.

The Bastianich-Batali hotspot has a long history of being super-green. It’s certified with three stars from the Green Restaurant Association, and it’s been in the news for banning bottled water and Joe Bastianich using the evening’s fryer oil to power his car.

And Novak, who’s working with Batali on the New York Botanical Garden’s Edible Academy, says Del Posto is a leader in sourcing local, sustainable food and providing diners with insight into what’s possible on their plate. “Not only do the chefs celebrate good food and how it’s prepared in the kitchen, but they care about where it comes from and make connections with farmers at this high level that we can all learn from,” she says.

The dinner will kick off with a few words from Novak, and the courses will feature a bounty of seasonal, local veggies, like Ricotta Pansoti with morel and peas and La Vignarola, a spring vegetable stew made with fava beans and artichokes—all paired with beer from Brooklyn Brewery. They’ll even send you home with a garden starter-kit to inspire your urban green thumb.

And if you can ditch work early, Yoga 216’s optional pre-meal yoga class takes place at 5:30 p.m., with the lights off. And they’ll have stylists from Blow on site, giving post-class mane “revivals,” so you won’t bring your sweaty yoga hair to the table.

$200 for dinner, tickets available here. $35 for yoga and blowout, book here under “workshops.”
