The time is now to try something new. Why? Well, why not?

As January comes to a close, our New Year’s Resolutions are starting to get a bit blurry and our old routines are starting to creep back in. Fight the urge and sign up right now for a few new activities that will kick start your February and keep the New Year’s Resolutions alive!

Try a cooking class at Aragon 101. This chic and modern home decor store doesn’t just carry an amazing, curated selection of home good from around the world (think: Japanese serving trays and Moroccan tea sets), they also have a full chef’s kitchen where you can take a cooking class. Come back again and again because the chefs and themes are always changing and there’s always a new technique or flavor profile to learn. Consider the Momofuku 101 class, a part of the cookbook series, where you’ll be transported to one of New York’s hottest restaurants without leaving Coral Gables.

Let your guard down and take center stage at Red Koi for karaoke night. Make your big debut, outside of your shower, and sing like no one is watching every Thursday night from 9 PM – 1 AM. Chef Tasha Tang has more than twenty years of experience in Thai kitchens, so get some fuel in your stomach and then take the stage feeling full and confident! The drink specials on Thursday nights are sure to help a bit too!

Focus on what really matters at free yoga on the Coral Gables Museum Loggia. Every third Wednesday of the month, from 6:15 – 8 PM join the neighborhood in a bit of mindful meditation, stretching and breathing. Yoga classes can quickly get pricey, but this free class is a way to keep your focus without breaking that budget you set for the new year.

Monday through Friday there’s happy hour at John Martin’s Irish Pub and Restaurant, but there’s only one night a week where you can sip your favorite libations, have dinner and stretch your brain muscles too! Thursday night is Trivia Night at John Martin’s. If you’re brave and ready to put together a good team, you can take on the regulars and maybe even be crowned that week’s winner!

There are dozens more things to do and see in Coral Gables, take the year and make it a goal to see them all!
