5 Reasons Why I’m Looking Forward To Spring…. Guest Post by Dajaneé Parrish

“Everything is everything
What is meant to be, will be
After winter, must come spring
Change, it comes eventually.” – Lauryn Hill

Are you looking forward to spring as much as I am? Even though the warmer season isn’t quite here yet, I’m looking forward to it and all the wonderful things that it will bring.

More Daylight

Daylight saving time may rob us of an hour of sleep, but once we have adjusted to the hour loss, we gain extra daylight. Who doesn’t love more sun?

Outdoor Activities

Spring means a warmer breeze and the opportunity to run outside to shed those winter pounds.  As you may know, we are doing the FIT Bar challenge with other bars around the country to get fit in 2015. This challenge has forced me to make some positive changes in my life regarding my health and wellness and I must say that it is a very welcomed change. So far,  since we have started the challenge which was toward the end of January I have lost 16 lbs.

It just keeps getting better. Even warmer weather, more sun and more fun to be had.

March Madness

If you are a college basketball fan then you will probably be glued to your TV. My team the St. Bonaventure Bonnies will face Saint Joseph’s in the second round of the Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship tonight, at 6:30 p.m. at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  Go Bonas! #NoSleepTilBrooklyn

Whatever team you root for, be sure to join us Thursday, March 19 for BarSTOP. This month’s BarSTOP is March Madness themed so come on down to the Hyatt Regency Rochester and watch the game on their giant projection screen.

MCBA Spring Food Truck Picnic

Who doesn’t love great food? Burgers, hot dogs, in season fruits and vegetables.  This April we are bringing healthy and delicious food to you. Join us for lunch on Wednesday, April 15 for our Spring Food Truck Picnic with food from Effortlessly Healthy Food Truck.  The food truck will be parked on Exchange Blvd and dining will be in the Rubin Center for Education, 5th Floor. We will bring the food to you, but you have to bring your bar colleagues.

On the menu is a Healthy Trash Plate, their take on Rochester’s famous garbage plate.

Effortlessly Healthy’s most popular menu item, the chicken, bacon avocado plate. Chicken served over sweet potatoes and coleslaw, topped with homemade avocado sauce and bacon.
