On New Year's Eve I won't be hanging from a harness, but I will be in downward dog. Image: allmoviephoto.com
Call me lame, but I’m not a huge fan of going out on New Year’s Eve. Paying a ridiculous cover charge so some inebriated stranger can slobber on me at midnight? Nah.
The only thing I like less is the trailer for “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” Annoying over-enunciating kidbot. Emotional manipulation as subtle as a hammer. Bono. Ugh.
End side rant.
Fortunately, two years ago I discovered a sweet New Year’s Eve candlelight yoga class. Formerly held at Moksha Yoga Center’s Lakeview location, it’s now at the Riverwest studio but well worth the trip. Give me bendy-twisty meditative goodness – with live music! – over sweaty crowds and overpriced shots any day.
Plus, afterwards I can take a penny CTA ride and (drunk) people watch.
Hey, I never said I was a saint.
