The restaurant also has a built-in juice bar, Joos, with a host of smoothies, teas and juices.

It’s the South in your mouth for breakfast followed by Feta Fest on Sunday night. The culinary world tour that is YJ’s Snack Bar (128 W 18th Street) has figured out how to bring you comfort food from around the globe. The morning is Southern Love Breakfast — it begins and ends with crispy bacon — and if you feel like Mediterranean, you can get a plate of hummus, olives, grilled pita and couscous between 6 and 10 p.m. Snag a cookie if there are any on the counter. The funky flavors (think: caramel apple) are worth a flier.
Happy Hour isn’t just for spirits and beer lovers. The Roasterie (1204 W 27th Street) holds its own version today from 3 to 5 p.m. with U.S. Latte Art champion and barista Simeon Bricker slinging $1 espresso shots and $2 cappucinos. Get supercharged for the weekend.
If wine is the only way your friends can get you to do yoga, then you’re in luck.

Not ready for yoga? Riverwood is offering hot spiced blueberry wine and apple wine all weekend.
