Greeting and welcome to the Daily Scoop. Today is Sunday, April 22, the 113th day of 2012. Here’s what’s happening in West Hollywood today.
In honor of Earth Day, Bristol Farms grocery store on Beverly Blvd (at Doheny) is hosting a Healthy Lifestyle and Workout Fair. Celebrity trainer Dion Jackson will demonstrate various workout routines including yoga, kickbox cardio, kettlebell and zumba. The purpose of the demonstrations, Jackson says, is to show “how fun being healthy and fit can be.” Food demonstrations will also be included. The Workout Fair runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Save the planet and get some exercise too. The West Hollywood Bicycle Coalition, a group working to improve the city’s biking infrastructure, is sponsoring a family-friendly, five-mile bike ride in honor of Earth Day. The ride departs West Hollywood Park at 11:30 a.m., then goes to Plummer Park to pick up more riders before heading to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Wilshire Blvd.
