Bar(re) crawls and green juice: the new St. Paddy’s Day

Forget the crazy parades and pints of green-tinted lager: You can feel the luck of the Irish—and the burn—this St. Patrick’s Day in New York City just by traipsing from one studio to the next with breaks for green juice in between.

Start your St. Paddy’s Day on the right foot (er, pedal stroke) at SoulCycle’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Ride. The Laurie Cole-led sweatfest (going down at 9:30 a.m. at SoulCycle Tribeca) will feature tapbacks and sprints to Ireland’s best beats.

The celebration doesn’t stop on Thursday, though.

Physique 57 will host a two-day barre crawl on March 19 and March 20, challenging participants to take a Physique class at three different NYC studios in one day. (Holy tucking, trembling, and thigh dancing!) Your reward for all that pulsing? In addition to bragging rights, crawlers will receive Sweaty Betty goodies, and a Physique 57 t-shirt. There will also be snacks and water provided throughout the crawl—but we don’t blame you if you start daydreaming of pints of Guinness midway through class #3.

If green juice is your jam (everyone raises hand), spend your Sunday (March 20) taking part in NYC’s St. Patrick’s Day Juice Crawl, hosted by Athleta, Juice Press, The Juice Shop, and others. It kicks off at 1 p.m. at Athleta’s Flatiron store (126 Fifth Avenue), with a high-intensity boot camp class and a pregame juice. From there, the group will hit up three juice bars in the Flatiron District. Your $49 ticket covers both the workout and all the juice.

Now who’s up for a pot-of-gold crawl?

What if your St. Paddy’s Day plans involve green beverages that contain zero vegetables? (Asking for a friend.) Here’s one way you can recover the next day. Or, dry April anyone
