Jugofresh Pop-Up Opens in Wynwood During Basel
Courtesy of jugofresh
Half the fun of Basel week is the overindulgence, IE, stuffing yourself with copious quantities of food, booze and assorted illicitness. But after a few days of too many parties, too much Prosecco and too little sleep, even Michelangelo himself (the Ninja Turtle, not the painter) would need to refuel.
Luckily, South Beach's favorite juice bar (and go-to spot for the harried, hungover -- or just health-conscious) is popping up in Wynwood to meet your Basel-induced nutritional needs.
They'll be debuting new items at the temp setup, including the Skinny G (coconut water, grapefruit and blue-green algae), the BCC (beet, coconut water, cashew mylk) and the Supa Dupa Vert (apple, cucumber, kale, spinach, dandelion, parsley, sunflower sprouts, blue-green algae and lemon). They'll also offer limited-time edibles like the Quinoa Bowl Vietnam, Quinoa Bowl Japan and Almond Chocolate Halvah.
In addition to healthy eats and drinks, it wouldn't be Basel if the shop didn't have an artsy appeal. Local designer and HGTV star Mark Diaz was commissioned to up the aesthetic appeal.
This includes walls lined with jewel-toned custom paper that glows from behind, and ceilings with a series of circular, convex mirrors. In addition, the interior will include reclaimed Wyoming fence wood (like the original location) and the exterior will feature murals by local artist Douglas Hoekzema.
Owner Matt Sherman offers his advice on which menu items to choose if you're feeling a little, well, piqued. "The saca lo shot and an el green go or Ph G(reen). A coconut water or cloryphyll water will go a long way too."
The pop-up will be open from Thursday, December 6, through Sunday, December 9, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 82 NE 29th Street. Visit Jugofresh.com.
