For weeks now, gyms have been piled high with both guys and gals trying to get their “Chella Bodies” on.
Editorial note: I am not kidding. I belong to a gym in the Marina District of San Francisco and can personally vouch for this term and its usage amongst young twenty-somethings San Franciscans. Between this and Zayn leaving One Direction, I don’t know what has happened to humanity.
Anyway, if you’re not heading to the Palm Desert for Coachella, host your own No-Chella party! There’s nothing preventing you from donning your flash tats, flower crowns, and high-waisted denim shorts to hit a local watering hole and pump the jams you want to hear.
In San Francisco, a fantastic alternative is Zeitgeist. Zeitgeist is a delightfully fun beer garden located in the Mission. With delicious beer on tap and an impressive grilled cheese offering, it’s a great place to bring friends together to kick back and listen to the music you’re missing.
If you’re in Chicago—and patiently awaiting Lollapalooza—get your music fix at Nick’s Beer Garden. No cover and weekend drink specials only mean one thing: time to take full control over the jukebox while the live band takes a break. Located in the heart of Wicker Park, there are plenty of spots to hit afterward for dinner.
New Yorkers can class things up over the weekend at The Standard’s High Line NYC Biergarten. Penned as the “best new beer bar or garden,” The Biergarten is sure to quench your thirst for Bavarian brews and offers a fun place to get a big group together.
If you can’t make your way West for Coachella, you must make your own No-Chella party. What better way to show off a weekend of fun with a legitimate excuse to use a Valencia filter?
