Hester Street Fair
Hester and Essex streets, Manhattan
Here’s a last call in the L.E.S. for this year’s Hester Street Fair. Mother Nature has decided it’s gonna be cold from here on out, so come on over and savor those last bits of sunlight in style. We’ll be hanging on to our lobster rolls and handmade jewelry like there is no (colder) tomorrow. It’s free to swing by the fair and browse around (but we promise you’ll want to buy some of this grub.)

The Cobra Club, 6 Wyckoff Avenue, Brooklyn
Rolling out of bed might be the last thing we want to do after a night partying too hard, but this Bushwick yoga studio might be on to something. Over at The Cobra Club, the Hangover Yoga class every Sunday focuses on deep breaths, stretching, and relaxing to help with headaches, nausea and fatigue — ya know, a hangover. The class is $15 to attend, and includes a free Bloody Mary or Mimosa after class. If stretching fails to ease our pain, hair of the dog always works, right?
