FINDING THE “SOLE” OF NYC AND L.A.
Hit the streets of the Big Apple and the City of Angels with these lighter-than-air itineraries designed for the comfort conscious urbanite.
NEW YORK CITY
Above the rumble of the frenetic subway, discover a side of New York City that beats to the laid-back rhythm of Brazil.
10 a.m.: Get into the relaxed spirit of the host country of the 2014 World Cup with an informal game of pickup “futbol,” or soccer, in Central Park.
12 p.m.: Head west out of the park via Columbus Circle toward the Time Warner Center (10 Columbus Circle) for shopping and a “café-com-leite” and delicious chocolate bouchon at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery.
2 p.m.: Walk east and south to 46th Street to explore the famous Little Brazil shopping district between Fifth and Sixth avenues and then recharge with rodizio-style BBQ lunch at Plataforma (316 W. 49th St. between Eighth and Ninth avenues).
4 p.m.: Circle back up toward Bryant Park (Sixth Ave. at 42ndSt.) to sunbathe on the lawn and grab a refreshing cerveja at the outdoor bar.
6 p.m.: Head to Mad46 (45 East 45th St.) to watch the sunset with cool caipirinhas and savory small bites, like water melon salad with mint and feta.
Hop on a Vespa and bounce around L.A. like a stylishly chilled-out “Sampa” local with yoga, live Brazilian music, and dancing.
10 a.m.: Get into swimsuit-model shape with a morning workout at Brazilian Yoga & Pilates (3191 Casitas Ave. near Minneapolis St.).
12 p.m.: Bounce around the Downtown L.A. Arts District and then grab lunch at the brand-new Eat.Drink. Americano (923 E. 3rd St. nr. S. Garey St.).
2 p.m.: Grab coffee at the Intelligentsia purveyors Venice Coffeebar (1331 Abbot Kinney Blvd.) and spend the afternoon on Venice Beach playing volleyball and checking out the vendors selling batiks and global jewelry.
4 p.m.: Learn the “ginga” in a beginner’s capoeira class at Capoeira Brasil (5557 West Washington Blvd. near S. Curson Ave.).
6 p.m.: Follow the summertime Street Food Cinema food truck meetup (streetfoodcinema.com) for outdoor movies and tasty bites at Exposition Park Drive near USC on Saturday nights through Labor Day.
