Need a reason to get in shape?

xsmall_marathon.gif Feel like pushing your body to the physical limit? No, I don't mean eating McDonald's everyday for a month. The deadline to sign up for the 2005 ING New York City Marathon is June 1. If you miss it you'll be forced to do what I did last year, jump someone halfway through the race and take his number.bike_small.gif

If you can't make plans that far in the future, this Sunday is the Five Boro Bike Tour. The largest recreational cycling event in the country, 42 miles starting in Battery Park cycling through New York's five boroughs ending with a festival at Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island. Registration is open until 7:45am Sunday at Battery Park.

Quarter-Past 2am...Hangout

Rue BRue B
188 Ave. B (East Village)
between 11th and 12th Sts.
(Map It!)

It's you know where quarter-life hipsters are? Over on Avenue B of course! In this former dive neighborhood, exists one of our favorites, Rue B. On any night of the week, this small, yet welcoming spot on the Avenue "B" strip attracts a good crowd where "everybody knows your name". The ambience eloquently described by a nymetro writer, "curvy banquettes line both sides of a narrow, amber-toned space lit with glowing wall sconces...a jazz combo plays in the back...obliging bartenders mix first-rate concoctions." Just be prepared for long lines to the single unisex bathroom. ...and let's face it, at 2am you are not really there for the drinks or the food!
