sdweiser's Reviews & Comments
La Pomme 2/2/2012
The fact that I'm writing a review for a club is funny for multiple reasons. At the top of this extensive list is that I have no basis for comparison (that could either be good or bad. Your call.) I never went to a club before, probably won't again (dear La Pomme, it's not you...it's me.) That being said, La Pomme is a great place to go if you're a. on the youngish side b. intending to hang with the people you already know c. okay with spending a lot more money than usual on your drink of choice (however, La Pomme is on the cheaper side) d. not anti stripper poles ("but what about that young girl's future?") and most importantly e. looking to have fun in a crowded and loud environment. And it was fun (it wasn't a night spent reading a good book or playing scrabble, but not all weekends can be spent living it up cheap student style.) So final verdict: go, be merry and leave with your ears ringing and a smile on your face.
Yoga to the People 4/27/2011
N.B. I always hated yoga. I don’t like to think about my breathing or imagine my body opening like a flower. That being said, Yoga to the People is an amazing workout. With no mirrors and music that doesn’t sound like pipe’s dripping to the lullaby of birds chirping, this isn’t like yoga in a crowded businessy gym. Everyone is there for themselves and people range from confused newbies to yoga masters. Regardless of level, the teachers and participants are non judgmental; it doesn’t matter what you wear or if you can lift your leg above your head. They have classes daily at different times and it’s entirely donation based. Be warned: it gets crowded and there is no air conditioning. Arrive early and know that it’ll get toasty! Check it out. You won’t regret it.
