Cold as Ice

Looking for something to do this weekend in New York to take the chill off? Well, you won’t find it at the Rubin Museum of Art, where Dutchman Wim Hof (aka The Ice Man) will plunge himself into an ice tub in an attempt to break his previous record of 1 hour and 11 minutes submerged within a frosty bath. Through the ancient Tibetan practice of tumo, Wim is said to be able to control the temperature of his body through meditation. In our own show of mind over matter, we will be braving the elements to enjoy a steamy hot chocolate at the local café.
