Order the Famous Mutton Chops at Keens Steakhouse

April 23, 2014 4:02 pm

Known for its signature mutton chops, Keens is a must-visit dining destination for any New York foodie. In fact, after over 125 years in operation, this legendary New York eatery received the 2013 James Beard Foundation American Classic Award. It's a traditional place with a straightforward meat-focused menu, and ordering a traditional cocktail or two is part of the Keens experience. Although Keens serves complimentary crudite, thick cut smoked bacon is a popular appetizer. All steaks are prime and dry-aged.

The ambiance is decidedly classy and historic with dark wood-paneled walls and portraits of prominent patrons and American figures. The ceiling is lined with the largest collection of churchwarden smoking pipes in the world. Keen's smoking club members included Teddy Roosevelt and Albert Einstein among others.

As you might imagine, reservations are necessary at this classic Manhattan steakhouse. Visit the Keens Steakhouse's website to learn more!

Hit the Ground Running With These Tips for Beginner Joggers

April 16, 2014 4:00 pm

Before you run, you must learn to jog, but sometimes even that can be a struggle. If you simply aren’t the running type, these simple and motivational tips can help you to get out on the trail and actually enjoy a relaxing jog.

  1. Wear the right clothes. Feeling comfortable and prepared can make all the difference when it comes to working out. Your tattered old sneakers and oversized sweatpants likely aren’t doing much for your motivation level, so trade them in for supportive running shoes and breathable, close-fitting shorts or leggings.
  2. Go for a few walks. Build up your stamina by going on a few 15 to 20 minute walks before you begin your jogging routine. This will also help you to plot routes in your area.
  3. Learn proper warm-ups. Begin by stretching your legs, torso, and arms for 5 to 10 minutes to avoid cramping. Make sure that you get your heart rate up by doing a few jumping jacks as well.
  4. Don’t overexert. It’s tempting to jump into a jogging routine head first to see faster results, but resist this urge. Build up your distances slowly to avoid strain and prevent becoming burnt out too quickly.
  5. Cool down. Cooling down is just as important as warming up. Walk a few laps after a run, and stretch your legs to avoid muscle cramping.
